In the novel Spidersilk, Mark hosts a large and in charge party to celebrate his new house. After getting the party started he slips away to the bathroom and ends up pulling out and cleaning a gun filled with tear gas bullets. These guns are also in our world and are popular in nations that don’t allow the use of guns with actual bullets. If you’d like to know more about the Izh-79 weapon, or something at least similar to it, Mark had concealed to keep the party under control, this link is pretty helpful.

In Chapter 1 of Spidersilk the novel, the main character Mark hosts a housewarming party. He invites his friend Tink who oddly states that he will “be there like an apparition.” Although this may simply be the way Tink uses his words, it also shows a bit of foreshadowing. At the party, Mark begins to hear voices from a ghost who soon begins to cause him a lot of problems. Did Tink know something Mark didn’t? Even later in the story this seemingly mysterious character seems to shrug off Mark’s ideas about their employers. Perhaps, Tink was in on it the entire time?

In Chapter 1 of Spidersilk, the novel, Mark explains to Tink about the repeating patterns in the video game world. Of course, he also implies there are repeating patterns within the world too. For instance, Mark uses services that we do, such as Paypal, Starbucks, movie theaters, espresso, car brands and so on, even though he is from another dimension! Not to mention, his daily life is very similar to a pattern too. He has his espresso and falls asleep and awakens while looking at his ceiling each day. From music to Mother Nature, we can find repeating patterns everywhere. Which patterns did you find in the book?
