* AlienGeometries: The world has "moved on", and everything is off-kilter, including the cardinal directions. Roland walks west until he reaches the western sea, then turns right to head north, which means the sea should be at his left. However, the text says that the sea is at his ''right'', making it seem as though Roland somehow did a 180 degree turn without realizing it. Things get even weirder in ''Literature/TheWasteLands''.



* WritersCannotDoMath
** The dating of the segments with Odetta and Jack Mort is inconsistent. First, Odetta thinks that it's been three months since the assassination of JFK; that means it's February 1964. Not much later, it's stated that August 19, 1959 (when she lost her legs) was five and a half years before; that means it's February 1965. Also, after the time travel to the 1970s, it's first stated that Roland entered to Mort's head at most a few weeks before he would've killed Jake; that means it's 1977. Later, it's said that a character saw ''Film/TheTerminator'' nine years later; that means it's 1975. Later, it's stated that Odetta lost her legs three years ago; that means it's 1962.
** There's a pretty bad geometry mess-up as well. Roland walks west until he reaches the western sea, then turns right to head north, which means the sea should be at his left. However, the text says that the sea is at his ''right'', making it seem as though Roland somehow did a 180 degree turn without realizing it. This one may be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in-universe - the world has "moved on," and things are off-kilter, including the cardinal directions. Things get even weirder in TheWasteLands.

* OutsideContextProblem: Suffice it to say, Enrico Balazar was probably NOT expecting a half-dead yet lethal gunslinger from another world to emerge from his private bathroom and give him trouble.

* FaceOfAThug: Jack Andolini, who Eddie and Henry refer to as "old double-ugly", but never within his hearing. That said, Jack [[GeniusBruiser was in no way "old double-stupid"]]; he's Enrico Balazar's right hand man for a reason.

** Potentially [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as the text mentions "hundreds" of pellets, which would mean the mook was probably using birdshot: basically BB pellets out of a shotgun which was sawed off so short it made said shot lose any pattern cohesion.
