Factual error: In chapter 18, when the Losers are in the kitchen of 29 Neibolt Street, Bill mentions that the FBI has a training range consisting of a false street with pop-up targets at Quantico. However, the scene is set in 1958, and the infamous "Hogan's Alley" at Quantico was not established until 1987.
Continuity mistake: Ben, Richie and Beverly go to the movies and after that they go down to the Barrens, where they later meet Bill and a boy named Bradley. In chapter 9, section 5, page 433 in my edition, Beverly meets Eddie, Ben and Bradley. Eddie asks about the movies she saw with Ben and Richie the day before, while Beverly recalls Bradley from having met him a week ago with Bill in the Barrens. So has it been a week or just one night?
Trivia: The worst guard at Juniper Hill is named Koontz - after Stephen King's rival in the horror genre.
