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.

Continuity mistake: In Ch. 72, Stu describes finding Harold dead, and recalls that "Harold still clutched the Permacover notebook in one stiffening hand." But earlier, in Ch. 64, Stephen King states that Harold "put the Permacover notebook into the Triumph's saddlebag" immediately before shooting himself.

Other mistake: In Chapter 59, Stu says that Nick "might have had his hands right on the shoebox", when the bomb inside went off. But Stu had no way of knowing that the bomb was hidden in a shoebox, he ran out of the house before it was even discovered. The only one who got close enough to see it was Nick, who was killed in the explosion.

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.
