The Stand

1 corrected entry

(0 votes)

Corrected entry: In the first edition printing of The Stand, Harold and Frannie are tracked by the Payday candy bar wrappers that Harold is constantly eating. Frannie then discovers that Harold has read her journal because of the chocolate finger prints on the pages. While the Payday candy bar has been around since 1932, it has never included chocolate as an ingredient.

Correction: The chocolate Paydar bar does exist:

Factual error: In Chapter 68, Trashcan Man finds a BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle) in a guard booth outside a nuclear storage facility in mid 1990. The BAR was phased out of US military service in the mid 1950's.

Trivia: In Chapter 62 Lloyd tells Dayna that Trashcan Man has brought several Flametracks (M132 Self Propelled Flamethrower) back to Las Vegas. The book is set during 1990 (but written in 1978) and flametracks were completely phased out of the US inventory by 1980.
