Added DiffLines:

* CharacterNameAlias: In "The Big Fish", the protagonist at one point uses "Lovecraft" as an alias, which is both an InspirationNod (the story draws heavily on Creator/HPLovecraft's "Literature/TheShadowOverInnsmouth") and an opportunity for the FemmeFatale to make a suggestive comment about 'love craft'.

Added DiffLines:

* WritingAroundTrademarks: The first-person LA private eye who gets knocked on the head a lot is never named, although the character list cheerfully notes that if he's ''not'' Philip Marlowe, it would be an ''astonishing'' coincidence.

* FormerChildStar: Richard makes some similar "child star" criticisms about {{Kid Detective}}s like Clever Dick, who, to be fair, grew into an embittered weatherman who rants insanely about his lost career.

According to [[https://twitter.com/AnnoDracula/status/881129078274883584]Newman's comments on Twitter]], the Diogenes universe also (loosely) encompasses other entries in his oeuvre including ''Literature/AngelsOfMusic'' and ''Literature/TheHoundOfTheDurbervilles''.

Some of Newman's other works -- such as ''Literature/AngelsOfMusic'' and ''Literature/TheHoundOfTheDurbervilles'' -- are implied but not confirmed to take place within the same continuity.

* BroadStrokes: Newman's typical attitude to continuity. For instance, "Seven Stars" was apparently written with the continuity of "The Original Dr Shade" in mind, in which Shade is a pulp fiction character owned by Leech. Later Diogenes stories have him as a real person. So by the end of "Seven Stars", Genevieve has apparently forgotten meeting his sister (in "Sorcerer, Conjurer, Wizard, Witch") and son (in "Cold Snap") and thinks of him as entirely fictional.

Newman himself has indicated that he considers the "future" segments of "Seven Stars" to be ''possible'' futures rather than the settled end point of the Diogenes Club universe.
