Some inconsistencies (I'm still reluctant to call them "errors" because I still believe most, but perhaps not all, are deliberate) around dates in the book and the series.
March 23, 1989
In the book, Catherine signs the mill/Ghostwood lands over to Ben. In the series, we know it's Ben who signs them over to Catherine, and that happens on March 11.
March 22, 1989
In the book, Dr. Jacoby's report says Ben is currently in his Civil War mania. In the series, he's out of his mania at this time; on this day he visits Eileen Hayward and begins the Stop Ghostwood campaign.
March 19, 1989
In the book, Dr. Jacoby's note is written in Princille, Kauai, Hawaii. In the series, Jacoby is in Ben's office during his mania.
March 18, 1989
In the book, this is the day Major Briggs learns of Dougie Milford's death, which he says occured "three nights earlier." In the series, Dougie died on either the night of March 16 or early morning of March 17.
March 15, 1989
In the series, Major Briggs invites Cooper for night fishing. In the book, he claims to have invited Cooper on the same night he delivered the "Owls Are Not What They Seem"/"Cooper, Cooper, Cooper" message, which was on March 4.
In the book, Cooper's "Andrew Packard Case" journal from this day makes reference to Andrew's "second" (real) death, Josie and Eckhardt's deaths and several other events. In the series, Josie and Eckhardt don't die until March 21, and Andrew doesn't die until March 27 (the day before DoppelCoop/BOB smashes the mirror).
March 11, 1989
In the book, Josie Packard's autopsy report was done that morning, which also suggests her death would have been the previous night (March 10). In the series, Josie dies on March 21.
March 4, 1989
In the series, this is the day Major Briggs delivers the message to Cooper. In the book, Briggs mentions this happening after Leland's death, which doesn't happen until March 11 in the series.
