I have often wondered if these gaffes are merely the product of a fevered imagination, with frequent continuity lapses as a product of them, or if they serve a more essential purpose in that they create a frission when read that adds to the air of a King novel; however, when seen, they become impossible to unsee. King himself has written of this effect in Danse Macabre, when he wrote of seeing the zipper in the back of a character's costume in the B horror flicks of his youth. The most obvious zipper in Storm is
- when Cat Withers takes the tarp off of the toboggan in Part 2 Act 3 to cover Billy Soames's corpse and discloses the goods piled on it are splattered with Billy's blood even though Billy spread the tarp over the goods and started securing it at the end of Act 2, before Cat beat his head in with Linoge's wolf-headed cane at the beginning of Act 3.
