    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.
