Geeking out: The Stephen King universe

The whole flowchart makes for a good poster. Hmmm, maybe I will have it printed in color one day…

The Stephen King Universe, part of which is seen above (click on image to see the whole thing), is a meticulously drawn flowchart that connects many (most?) of the characters, plot points, places that appear in the King canon. I love Stephen King and have read most of his books/works. One characteristic I like about his stories is that a lot of them overlap with each other. Main characters will have a cameo in another novel, for instance. Or a seemingly random or harmless action by another sets of a cataclysmic chain of events in another book. Half the fun of reading his work is discovering the interconnectedness of the stories and the characters. Some are obvious connections, while many are more subtle. I thought I was a fan. The one who thought this up is fan with a capital “F”! Enjoy!

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
