Anorak’s Almanac

A compilation of all the references that are contained in the book, Ready Player One, that (in theory) Halliday recorded as his character from the OASIS. Also included are references that are not necessarily directly listed… see the article about “WHY we included THAT?” linked at the bottom of this page! Please note that we are currently working on making up the full reference links both for this and for the Siren’s Shards. Lists may be updated at any time.

Somewhere along the way, I started to go overboard. I may, in fact, have started to go a little insane.
