And SK wrote the miniseries. Correct? So SK, came up with the idea first?
That's right. I think he was the one who asked Ridley to write the book as they were both in the Rock Bottom Remainders. The story originally was going to be a project with Steven Spielberg but that never got off the ground and Stephen went in this direction for the mini-series.

Last question. How does the movie version of The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer tie in to this? Is it totally independent of Rose Red?

Unca Stevie did say that the book was still not long enough in terms of telling the story, or something to the effect of it only covered several days and he wanted it to cover several months, which the show will get to do... (it was in his Entertainment Weekly interview about the show, only going by memory)

I thought we had up to thirty minutes to edit a post, when did it go down to ten?

Anyhoo... I found my copy of the Diary of Ellen Rembauer book...
Yes - I noticed that too - must be more vigilant with the proofreading now! I find that I sometimes do not see a mistake until someone quotes my post when making a comment.
