Infographic: The Stephen King Universe

Stephenh-King-Universe-FLowchart-900px[1]Stephen King is probably the most famous American horror author, and he is well known for setting many of his stories and novels in and around the region of Maine where the author lives. Most of the stories are set in fictional towns like Castle Rock, Derry, and Jerusalem's Lot, but did you know that many of the stories are set in the same fictional universe? No joke. One seriously obsessed Stephen King fan has put together a flow chart that shows which characters and events are mentioned in which Stephen King novel (except for The Dark Tower, which will be in the next version of TSKYFC).

This is a seriously cool chart that has already consumed an hour of my time and earned its creator my undying admiration.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Since The Dark Tower is the glue that holds it altogether, I will wait for the next version before being wowed.

  2. I am impressed with the chart but I have to say that I do not read Stephen King because his stories scare me. He even looks scary in his photos.

  3. No dark tower? This chart isn’t even half complete without it. Sorry, but you wasted your time.
