In the twitter account for The Beacon Star, the author tweeted this on February 10, 2018:
"The Beacon Star pays homage to many other arm chair treasure books, mystery stories, and famous codes, but some of these homages are hidden".
Just for fun, the ones that I see are:
1.) Beale is the proprietor of the Singing Robin. This refers to the Beale cipher.
2.) On p. 43, the Glyph Poem ("The legacy was left for me...") it reads:
"and little man has tarried there..." This refers to Forrest Fenn, whose poem reads "tarry scant with marvel gaze".
3.) On page 68, there is an "erroneous" binary code of 100001 which = 33. The number 33 refers to Sir Francis Bacon, creator of the Bacon Cipher. (This number should be 34 in keeping with the Fibonacci numeration, so in that respect it is "erroneous").

That's interesting that number 33 being Bacon's number! I didn't know about that. And the previous page is 67. According to one site, that's another number Francis Bacon use -- 67 is the number for "Francis" and 33 the number for Bacon.
