*** The regulars at Callahan's are an open bunch, but Spider kind of has this thing about just ''mentioning'' characters' sex lives that can seem a little ''too'' open. Like in ''Callahan's Con'' where Jake describes a merman who's barely in the book, then just out of the blue says "he doesn't have a tail, but he gets a lot of it." Also, Nikola Tesla appears in two of the books and in describing him, both times it's pointed out very clearly that [[AManIsNotAVirgin he was NOT a virgin]] at the time of his "death." That sorta kinda fit in the spinoff set in the bordello run by Callahan's wife, but it still seems like a really weird thing to just toss out there.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Averted. The game is actually really good, being designed by former Sierra writer and designer Josh Mandel.

* AuthorFilibuster: Quite rare, but Spider lets one or two slip by as the series carries on. For example, ''Lady Slings the Booze'' has one such digression where [[TheBartender Mike Callahan]] talks at length why rapists, instead of imprisonment, [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil should just be raped in turn]]...[[NightmareFuel by someone like Mike]], and a later discussion about how killing pacifists should only be a misdemeanor[[hottip:*: The reasoning is [[ItMakesSenseInContext a bit more fleshed out than that]], but that's the ultimate gist]]. To be fair, [[TrueCompanions considering the company]], having the Callahans stop and chat about these sorts of things doesn't feel ''as'' out of place as it might in another story.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: A couple music tracks in the game are songs performed by Spider himself, and several have [[http://www.melmusic.com/amos_garrett/ Amos Garrett]] playing guitar.
