Other Derry Stories without IT influences

    There are a number of other stories with Derry as the setting. Since IT was a presence in, and, essentially was the founder of, Derry since people began to populate it, I wonder why no other stories reference it...or reference it more. Also, there seems to be an endless supply of derivative stories where IT would be a major influence. Derry IS It...It IS Derry. I wonder if King will ever write anything else...perhaps derivative stories of other childhood experiences with IT. Since IT was there for centuries...the possibilities are endless. I, myself, have written a few FanFic stories, very short ones, to be sure, of other children in Derry who have encountered IT.

    Well IT is referenced - sort of - in Dreamcatcher and Insomnia.
    I believe there is graffiti saying "Pennywise lives" in Dreamcatcher and the Crimson King says in Insomnia that Derry has a history of shapeshifting. People from the novel is mentioned in other novels too.

    There is an “It” tie-in in “11/22/63”!

    And sign543 , I like the idea of exploring more stories and encounters of It. The tangents about Derry’s past strange events were my favorite parts of the book.

    I think, the stories of Derry about crimes and bad people are excused because of the influence of IT. But similar stories outside Derry doesn't have any excuse. That's my thinking....Each one can interpret as one wants....
