"You're awwe-some sizzles, thx." - Garrick in Spidersilk the book  

In Spidersilk the novel, most of the characters have a connection to something from our own world, or from legends that many grew up hearing. Kara, for instance, plays a rather small part in the book. However, while browsing around I was able to dig up some information about a Norse legend. According to myth, there was Valkyrie named Kara who was known as the stormy one. This could explain Kara’s sassy attitude. Another interesting tid bit about this Valkyrie, is she was often seen in the form of the crow. Although in the novel, Kara has no connection with the Valkyrie legends, the shared name is rather interesting.

"...this is the road? The road appeared nearly identical to the one he frequently visited in his dreams." - Mark from Spidersilk the novel  

In Spidersilk the novel, Mark, the main character, meets up with his friend Rae Osira. Eventually, Rae is kidnapped by the intruders. The name Osira is connected to another incredible story though. In the world of DC comics, Osira was actually from another planet, much like the intruders Mark battles. She also attempted to control the world in order to bring peace. This can also relate to the intruders need to get rid of technology for the greater good. Although the character Rae may not actually be inspired by Osira, it is still an interesting out of the box connection.

Damn—Those technology investors. I would be very rich right now if they did not have me one over. Thoughts, lingered in his mind.”_Chris in Spidersilk the novel
  

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?
  

Mark quickly jabbed, "You like the Cyberpad, Mairis?" Mairis smiled warmly... "Absolutely, it sizzles." - Spidersilk the novel

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?
