The name of the town mentioned in this chapter is taken from a short story by Arthur Conan Doyle titled “The Los Amigos Fiasco”, about an execution that doesn’t quite go as expected.  The story might have been the inspiration for an old Lon Chaney Jr. film titled “The Indestructible Man“, which is where I originally cribbed the idea for my Mysterious Creepy Guy.  (Although the Lon Chaney character was much more sympathetic)
