    SK's commentary on the 4 DS novellas is that each one was a "leftover" - after he had finished a novel, he hadn't yet finished writing, and the DS stories were a kind of writing himself out to a dry tank.

    Do we know if this happened elsewhere? Which other stories might be tied to which novels?

    From the Flap:

    "Is horror all you write?" is the second most frequent question Stephen King encounters,* he tells us in the Afterword to this superlative quartet of novels. Although he is by now a world-class grand master of the horrific, he resists entombment in that genre. That he can transcend horror is proved triumphantly in these four works. At the same time, nobody in search of the utterly distinctive King brand of driving narrative, graphically rendered scene and character, and stamp-on-the-clinging-fingers cliffhanger plot will go away unsatisfied.
