    I thought we could use this thread to discuss the connections between the DT series and Mr King's other works. I know the following have links to the series. Of anybody wants to add more please do.

    Salem's Lot
    Bag of Bones
    The Stand
    Eyes of the Dragon

    I know there's more I just can't think of them.

    Out of Order 'n' Gravy

    Rose Madder
    Black House
    From a Buick 8
    The Regulators
    Skelton Crew
    Hearts in Atlantis
    Everything's Eventual

    I got these related from being in bold in the beginning of The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower. I'm wondering if any of the newer works are related as well. Duma Key and Under the Dome and such. Maybe even "Mr. Mercedes"?

    The Nameless M-O-O-N - That spells Nameless

    It's probably not related, but Stephen does a great job of spoiling a part of Cujo - Thanks Steve, hadn't read that, nor have I read Salem's Lot, or Insomnia but I now know a bit about them too. He sure does like a spoiler.

    Cujo? I've never heard of there being a connection for Cujo. And in Mr. King's defense most of the books that are related to the series did come out BEFORE the Tower lol.

    You're asking the wrong girl about connections....
    Looking for them just isn't my thing.....don't understand the thrill of trying to connect every single story.
    Sometimes, I'll catch a reference, but that's about as far as it goes with me.

    Walter Oobleck keeps coming back...or going, and going, and going

    I, also, enjoy the connections that mean something only to me...or...maybe to others, too...but I'm talking about the not-obvious connections, ideas maybe...problems...the blue-yellow sightings...a repeated phrase here there everywhere...say like his stories about writers...yeah, there is that connection, writers...but then too if you consider it...seems like the question or one question being asked is where do these things come from...connections like that...links in the chain.

    The Nameless M-O-O-N - That spells Nameless

    After Kings accident, the guy in the van goes back to see him, and says "I liked your movie Cujo where the boy hides in a car to survive" and King replies "in the book he dies" - or words to that effect (I have put my book away now so can't check just yet)

    You might check out some of the other threads on the forum. Lots of connections and references and conspiracy theories and more.

    I like finding connections, too. I think Duma would be connected to DT by virtue of "there are other worlds than these." I personally think that's true of all other SK books...they all fit. But if I had doubt about something that wasn't there, SK actually said as much in Doctor Sleep.

    SK 's revisiting old stories makes me want to hope sentimentality (or whatever motivation is needed) is gripping SK and we get another direct DT soon.
