    It's not so much that I look for connections, most of them just pop out if you've read enough King to recognize where a connection comes into play. The fact that the story arc of The Dark Tower takes place on several different planes of existence gives one reason to ponder whether all of his stories take place on different planes connected to the Tower, I'm not saying that it is a certainty, just that it is justifiable to think such a thing. As you read and re-read more King, I'm sure you'll begin to notice these possible connections, it's just part of the fun, lol.

    Speaking of connections...

    I am on my first read of The Stand (yep, mid 30s, and JUST NOW reading The Stand). Anyhow, other than the obvious Randall Flagg connection, did anyone else notice that when Lloyd Henreid is in jail, and Flagg comes to free him, that Flagg had a black stone in his hand with a red eye on it. And he gave Lloyd the stone. Just sayin.... Black Thirteeen, mayhap? Nah...

    I don't actively search for connection between books (DT related or not) when I'm reading a book, but I do notice some stuff if its obvious like the "Christine" style Plymouth Fury in 11/22/63. The more in depth links I don't always notice though.

    The links are actually part of how I found this forum. I recently finished adding the books from "The Dresden Files" on my nook and after I finished reading through them I decided to start adding some SK stuff. I found the forum while looking for a site where I could check the connections in a book before I added it to the nook and read it. Particularly for the books I'd originally read long before I started the Gunslinger.
