Authorial self-reference at work

In the first of Dan Simmons' extremely hard-boiled private eye novels, Hardcase, his main character Joe Kurtz has obviously just read The Crook Factory, which happens to be a certain Dan Simmons' secret-history espionage novel about Hemingway's life in Cuba in the early days of the Second World War...

Both excellent books, as is usual with Simmons' work...
