* ShortRangeShotgun: A truly horrendous example pops up during the shootout in Balazar's office. One of the crime boss' mooks fires a [[SawedOffShotgun shotgun]] at Eddie, and not only is the length of an office enough for the spread to be ineffective, but those pellets that do hit him ''merely sting.'' That's right, someone just on the other side of the room shoots Eddie in the chest with a shotgun, and it just stings a bit.

That's right, someone just on the other side of the room shoots Eddie in the chest with a shotgun, and it just stings a bit. Potentially justified, 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.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: After encountering and knocking out two policemen in 1977 New York (while in Jack Mort's body), Roland takes their guns, planning to give one to Eddie and one to Odetta. Somewhere along the line, he evidently forgets about this plan, although he wears the guns up to the time he returns through the door to his own world.

** 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 ''[[Franchise/{{Terminator}} The Terminator]]'' 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.
