Бегущий человек -
В конце романа "11/22/63", когда Джейк попадает в реальность, где Кеннеди жив, подростки требуют у Гарри новобаксы, также упоминаются старобаксы. Эта валюта присутствовала в "Бегущем человеке".
The clouds rifted. The moon peeked through. By its chancy light I saw an old man in a wheelchair. He was halfway across one of the streets intersecting Main—Goddard, if the name hadn’t changed. One of his wheels had gotten stuck in a pothole, causing the chair to cant drunkenly to the left. The boys were crossing toward him. The kid who had told me to fuck off was holding a slingshot with a good-sized rock in it. That explained the bonk and the spang.

""No! No, I won't... won't allow it. You're not going to—"
"Why not? At worst you can get a few oldbucks as the head of a fatherless house. One way or the other you'll have to see her through this."

"Well, I'm alive, anyway," he said. "According to those maggots, that's all that counts. I'm sterile, of course. That don't matter. That's one of the little risks you run for the princely sum of seven New Bucks a day."
