1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Hello all :)

    I'm watching a thread on Facebook where people are telling each other which short story by SK they like best. One of them came up with this:

    "I don't remember the name of the short story, but a soldier's body comes home from war and his dad buries it. He comes alive again and walks around town, even stopping at a lady's house who always had dance parties. Always creeps me out, I can picture it so vividly."

    Now, this doesn't really sound familiar to me... Does anyone know which story she is talking about??? It reminds me somewhat of the story 'The monkey's paw' but Stephen never did that, did he?

    Yes, isn't this the story (retold by Jud) within Pet Sematary?

    Ahaaaaaaa that's why I couldn't think of a title :D It's a story within a story.

    Yeah, it's the origin story for how Jud found out about the burial ground.
