    Default Dark Tower references in books NOT by Stephen King?

    Exactly what the subject title is asking. Have any other authors snuck Dark Tower connections into their works?

    Any others? Maybe by authors that aren't related to King? Lol

    And isn't Charlie the Choo Choo by Stephen King?

    Based on the cp date, SK committed some serious plagiarism of Ms Evans work!

    Maybe the family should sue?
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    I know you said not related to King but Joe also mentions Nozz-ola in The Fireman.

    I did just finish reading The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Jonot Diaz (2007) and several references to The Stand are made throughout including mentioning Captain Trips, Mother Abigail and Harold Lauder. This is Dark Tower adjacent I suppose. It's a stretch but the closest I can come up with at the moment.

    I found this online:

    As Dark Tower connections go, the Deathlands series is a pretty interesting development. In the fifth book of this post-apocalyptic series, the characters pass by Roland, who is standing on the side of the road. Discussions on James Axler forums indicate that the series' authors may have also paid homage to writers other than King.
    Wanted: Human skin edition of The Book of the Dead. Will accept PC copy.
