* AMindIsATerribleThingToRead: Jeremy Bremen from ''The Hollow Man'' suffers this as soon as his wife dies, who was the only other telepath he had met. Being around large crowds of people makes him suffer horrible migraines, considering his ability is the equivalent of watching thousands of television shows at once in 3D at full volume with no way to turn it off. The only people who he can be around with no negative effects to him are those who are mentally deficient or psychotic.

A common thread throughout all Simmons' novels are references to classic literature, either directly or metaphorically. ([[AuthorAppeal Simmons was once a middle-school English teacher]]).

* TheTopicOfCancer: The story "Metastasis" is built heavily around this trope. Apparently cancer [[spoiler:is caused by a parasitic race that uses humans as breeding grounds. In effect each tumor is actually a larvae that devours humans from the inside as it reproduces wildly until there is nothing left. The parents then come back and devour their offspring for nourishment occasionally leaving one or two to germinate into an adult]].
