Stephen King is one of my favorite authors of all time. I enjoy the hell out of reading his books that he's been writing for about 40 years. Many of the stories that he writes are set in the same place, mostly Castle Rock and Derry, which are both in the state of Maine. There are a lot of connections in King's stories, you may have even noticed some of his characters popping in and out of them as well.
Gillian Smith took it upon herself to create an awesomely twisted flow chart showing all the Stephen King story connections. Here's a note from the creator:
When I was in Grade 5 (guess I was ten), my friend Tarnya Smyth brought her mum's battered copy of Stephen King's 'Carrie' to school. We broke it into about 4 pieces and passed them around, all taking turns reading each battered section. I told mum about it and she FLIPPED HER WIG and told me to 'Stop reading that book immediately!!' So I finished it.Now, I TOTALLY do not recommend ten year olds reading Stephen King books (messed me up good), but this was when my life long relationship with Mr King began. My love for his books is based around his characters. They are so full. I love Stephen King dialogue. I love his sense of humour. And I love the links and connections between the books. I am the kind of annoying person who likes to know the 'In Joke'. So, of course, I MADE A FLOW CHART!!!
What's your favorite King book?
