I have heard of the book and know there is a movie, but never got around to reading it out seeing the show.

I know that the legend about the Tommyknockers is real and I saw a episode recently of Ghost Adventures where they went into a mine, where the Tommyknockers are supposed to be active.

I am reading the intro and SK mentions that there is a Mother Goose rhyme about the Tommyknockers, is this real or did he make it up?

What can I expect from the book? It sounds like there are aliens in it. Anything else?

...no hints man....it's a polarizing book....either fans hate it, or love it-not much middle ground.....and I can't find a specific citation for Mama Goose, I just know it's part of Cornish folklore.....

What a deal. I hope you give us your feedback on it when you finish. I like the novel despite its imperfections and it has always delighted me with its mix of humor and horror. I think King improved on writing small towns with Needful Things (some may say, UTD) but reading about the denizens of Haven was exciting and hallucinogenic.
