The title "Jhereg Irregulars" is likely a reference to Sherlock Holmes' Baker Street Irregulars, an informal network of street urchins that Holmes kept available by paying them each "a shilling a day (plus expenses)" while on a case.

It's not clear if Loiosh, who named Vlad's group, has read about Sherlock Holmes.


This same idea was famously used previously in Science Fiction by Robert Heinlein in the Hugo-award winning novel, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.
