So is this story about a guy losing weight, or is it about gay rights? If the latter, then why does it need to be set in Castle Rock?

Gosh, it couldn't be about MORE THAN ONE THING, could it?! ;)

Is there some reason you think it shouldn't be set in Castle Rock?
Well, I just think that those 2 possible stories might clash and hurt the book as a whole. I don't know much about it, it might be cool.
I also think that just talking about how gay rights are good (which is a cause I do support, just to clarify) isn't something worthy of the setting of Needful Things, The Dead Zone, and Cujo.

I can't say any more about it yet because Stephen doesn't want anything beyond what the publisher has already announced so will just say you may be leaping to conclusions and would suggest keeping an open mind about Stephen's abilities to write about all of those topics and setting the story in that location. :smile2:

Well, we're talking about the book so I don't think it needs to be moved.

....young'un, you are most welcome here-but you may want to dial back the tone of your posts and questioning every single thing.....take some time, cruise around and get to know us and the Board, before you start taking folks to task....
Yeah, I agree, although my point still stands. I think it's kinda funny that I was only here for an hour ans accidentally almost started a flame war. I still don't think it needed to be set in Castle Rock though, wonder if it will be compiled with fellow Castle Rock novella Gwendy's Button Box.
