Character mistake: At the end of chapter 16, Wade describes Columbus, Ohio as looking like Oz at the end of the yellow brick road. However Oz is the name of the world. It was the emerald city that was at the end of the yellow brick road.

Continuity mistake: In Chapter 19, Wade describes the small efficiency apartment he has moved into, which used to be an average hotel room. He says at one point that the room "was basically a cube, about ten meters long on each side." A ten-meter cube is actually a really big room - that's over 32 feet on each side, including ceiling height. Then, just to confirm that this is indeed a mistake, later in the same chapter he refers to "my tiny one-room apartment."

Plot hole: In all scenes where special or heavy items are used against the sixers, they are 'zeroed' in waves or circles. This can be seen by their stations turning red in clusters. This makes no sense as the stations have fixed positions, meaning that the sixers would have identical positions in the Oasis and have no freedom or own will to move relative to each other.

Question: In gate 1, Wade power cycles the TRS-80 after loading the cassette program - all of the units I used (I'm old) required the operator to boot, load the program from audio cassette, then run - not reboot and autostart as an Atari or Nintendo did - was there a trick from 30+ yrs ago I'm forgetting?
