So then. These books are filled to the brim with references, some sly, some brazen, as well as hilarious puns. What are some of your favourites?
Since I'm on a Legion of Shadow re-read, I'll mention two of my favs in that book:
1. You can pick up an item called 'Steel gear solid'. Metal Gear Solid, anyone?
2. One of the later items is called 'Wrath of Ages'. Since we're English, not American, it would be pronounced 'roth', which makes it sound a bit like 'Rock of Ages'. That was a hit song in the '80s for the Rock band Def Leppard.
Funnily enough, Def Leppard - like the author (Da Boss) - are from Sheffield!
What are some of your favourite in-jokes, references and puns in these excellent books?
