* The ''Literature/LordDarcy'' stories by Randall Garrett include a brilliant magical theoretician named Sir Thomas Leseaux. Garrett was friends with the stage magician and author T.A. Waters. His sometime collaborator Michael Kurland appears in ''Too Many Magicians'' as Sergeant-At-Arms Michel Coure-Terre. Also in ''Too Many Magicians'', there is a senior wizard named James Zwinge; the real name of stage magician and arch-sceptic James Randi. There's also a shout out to Edward Elmer "Doc" Smith (author of, among other things, the ''Lensman'' series) in the form of Sir Edward Elmer, Th.D. (the equivalent of a doctorate in magic).

Specifically, and fittingly, Sir Edward Elmer is the creator of a spell that makes badges which glow when touched by the specific person they're attuned to; they're used to definitively identify King's Messengers, very high level servants of the Crown.
