    Just because it pertially relates to this thread...

    King has few Naysayers in His publishing world. That's a damnshame.

    Obvious by the belaboring of the "Glee Kids from It: The Interlude" scene.

    That should have been ..."handled" a better, given the gravity and the fans of the Source.

    It was familiar, but embarrassing. Didn't those silly ****s (pardon the poon), having gone through what they did, maybe have possibly given up on their cutesy-wootsey phrases. Or maybe not, they still cling to them 'cause that's all the sanity they still have after the experience.

    NVM, I'm nuts.

    The cool thing?

    I sink.

Hey, it's his book and if you can't put yourself in your own book, then I just don't know.
    I agree with you, I also love it when a book is linked to the DT saga, but it was (for me anyway) just jarring when I came upon this part in 11/22/63.

    I agree! I couldn't put the book down during the Derry section. It was so unsettling.

    I can't get enough of the connections.It's great when you've been reading an authors works for 15 years,then all of a sudden you notice that some of the books are connected and you then spend the next 15 years looking for the connections in his new material.It makes re-reads even more compelling.I'm re-reading Insomnia at the moment.I'm more obsessed with SK's books now than I have ever been.(Insomnia spoiler)

    Someone mentioned that Ralph Roberts is in 11/22/63,my next task is to see if I can find it

    I do not think that Our Derry should have been revisited so damn Glee-fully. He didn't have to (and shouldn't have, but no one was there to tell Him) keep that dumbass scene. Poor style. Lack of judicious editing.

    And that's all I have to say about that.

    Yes! When I recently did my re-read of the DT series, it was not long after I'd read 11/22/63, and I noticed all kinds of mentions, brewing ideas, of it. Like

    the door, as you mentioned, and also Eddie I think it was, though it could've been someone else, thought about what if someone went back in time to save JFK.
    I like how all the stories connect in little ways, myself. Makes me feel included in the importance, makes me happy And I liked visiting Derry again, getting that bad feeling in the pit of my stomach, and seeing the kids again...

    I am in total agreement I love the little connections, like getting a ickle soft spot when spotting a certain sheriff etc in many of his older books that was till I found this website and realised others had found them all and more too lol. i just finished 11/22/63 and i didnt find RR did you?
