Does this take place on Earth?

    My personal view or headcanon was

    Prime World: (Includes nearly all King's Earth set works - even if there are some contradictions I'd still consider the same exact world. A couple inconsistencies doesn't automatically make it a parallel Earth. i'd just chalk that up to mistakes here and there.)

    The prime world includes IT, Salem's Lot, Shining, Dead Zone, Needful Things and so on. Almost anything set in Castle Rock and Derry. The stuff with the really obvious connections.

    Keystone Earth: (The Earth Eddie, Jake, and Sussanah hail from. Mr. Mercedes can also take place here, possibly.)

    The Stand world - possibly two version of them

    Mid World - (Obviously - much of the DT series and Eyes of the Dragon)

    The Territories

    And there are several others, but this just sort of my headcanon.

    It actually takes place on this earth just outside of Des Moines, Iowa. It was very sad when Delbert died at the end. :sadface:
