I think John has some form of “the touch” from the Dark Tower series, very similar to being able to shine but with its differences (Probably just a variation of the same thing). I definitely think Mother Abigail from The Stand definetly has Shining though.

as anyone noticed how much John coffey fits the description of the "roont" children from Wolves of the calla, maybe he's a walk-in, what do you all think?
I don’t think so, I can see your point but Coffey doesn’t really seem to be mentally challenged in the ways the roont children are, just uneducated. I’m only 1/3 into Wolves of the Calla so maybe you’re coming from something I haven’t learned yet.
