The continuing Amos/Gaiman connection
The Dime
"me and Neil'll be hangin' out with the DREAM KING

Neil says hi by the way"

Tori Amos, Tear in your Hand, 1992
Reference to Dream of the Sandman comics, authored by Neil Gaiman. Care to compare some of Delirium's appearances to Tori?

" 'You're a god?' said Shadow.
Lucy smirked, and took a ladylike puff of her cigarette. 'You could say that,' she said.
'Sam says hi,' said Shadow."

Neil Gaiman, American Gods, 2001
There's a clear parallel between the two lines. Sam is a young, half-Cherokee woman who hitchhikes with the main character. Tori is not half-Cherokee, more like 1/16th, but the connection stands, at least in my mind.

I know there are tons more connections, I was just proud I picked this one up myself while reading American Gods last night.
