* WriteWhatYouKnow: Apparently the apartment is based on a creepy one that Otomo once lived in.
** The inspiration behind the book was actually a newspaper article Otomo read about a rash of mysterious deaths at another apartment complex. He decided to combine it with the one he lived in and based some of the cast on his neighbors.
