In sweeping up the scraps of my research, I came across one more connection to make among Lee Brown Coye, "Sticks," and The Blair Witch Project. Then it will be time to move on.
A quote from "Sticks" (1974):
When he [Colin Leverett, the Coye character in the story] came across a scrap of board nailed to several sticks set into a stone wall, his darkest thought was that it might read "No Trespassing."
A quote from Planet of the Apes (1968):
Taylor: Let's see.
Is there a connection? You decide.
