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.
