- This one probably isn't an error, but here it is:
The mining company that does the extractions in Desperation is called The Desperation Mining Corporation, while it in The Regulators is called Deep Earth.
But since Desperation and The Regulators takes place on alternate planes, I do not think that this is an error. It is after all not the only thing that he has changed concerning the people and objects which figures in both books. I am talking about Kirsten, David, Ellen and Ralph.
- On page 315 ( Ch. 10, subch. 11 ) it said that if Seth left his body completely, then all of his parasympathetic systems would seize to function. The problem here is that there is only one parasympathetic system ( which name actually is: the parasympathetic autonomous nervoussystem ), which includes all of the mentioned body systems.
- On page 363 ( Ch. 11, subch. 2 ), it says that the gila-ish monster, which hopped into Tom Billingsley's backyard had a head which looked like as if it was an escapee from "Jurassic Park".
The problem is that "Jurassic Park" was published in 1990 and Richard Bachman 'died' in 1985, so Richard Bachman couldn't have written that.
Okay, the editor points out that they have made some corrections in the book in an attempt to keep it up-to-date, but I can't help but wonder what the monster was an escapee from, before the correction - The Flintstones? Nah!
- On page 150, Part 1, Chapter 5, Subchapter 3: "... had he ever smoked pot, had he ever in his life converted the six-ten split..." That last part of the sentence about the six-ten split looks like a bowling reference. If it is, then it is a mistake. The six and ten pins, when positioned properly on the pin deck, are situated close together, and are not considered a split, but a rather easy spare. I believe that King was refering to the seven-ten split, which is the most difficult in bowling.
