- According to The Other Wiki, Michael De Luca wrote it. Trent is the fictional being created by a fictional insane author who sold his soul and all of fictional reality to a fictional Eldritch Abomination all because of Michael De Luca, who proved thoroughly that The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You certainly swings both ways, if it exists at all. I wonder if Trent is aware of the existence of Sam Neill portraying/living out his life?
- Interestingly, you can see the poster for the movie-within-the-movie when Trent goes to see it. It lists John Trent and Linda Styles, as if they themselves were the In-Universe actors portraying their characters...but it also lists John Carpenter as the director, suggesting he exists within the fictional world of the movie.
Bill is a Reality Warper who acts as his pawns' muses by speaking to them in their mindscape. Sutter Cane, being an author, was a perfect medium to work through. Why he didn't repeat this to enact Weirdmageddon is anyone's guess.
And yes, that means Christine is a Sutter Kane novel too. Did you know my favorite color is Autumn Red?
