* SeriesContinuityError: While in Derry in 1958, Jake is told the body of Patrick Hockstetter, one of the victims of Pennywise, has recently been found in The Barrens. However, in "{{Literature/IT}}" Patrick was dragged into the tunnels underneath Derry by Pennywise and remained there undiscovered for decades. The Losers encounter his (skeletal) remains down in the tunnels in both 1958 and again in 1985. Likewise, by this time Henry Bowers should have been apprehended by the Derry Police, and under intense pressure from both police questioning and severe psychological strain from what transpired in the sewers, falsely confessed to the murders and sent off to Juniper Hill. The townspeople of Derry don't seem to be aware of this, however, even suspecting that the killer may still be out there, or even unsure that the murders have stopped for good. [[spoiler: Justified in that Jake's changes to the timeline with each visit [[ButterflyEffect may have made subtle changes to events in Derry]] which altered the narrative for that timeline.]]

* ButterflyOfDoom: The "butterfly effect" is explicitly mentioned (multiple times) in the novel. Creator/RayBradbury's ''A Sound of Thunder'' is named. [[spoiler:It's impossible to make a completely positive change to the past. Positive changes will be accompanied by some negative effect--and a large enough change can [[TimeCrash unravel the very fabric of the universe]].]]
