Infographic: The Stephen King Universe
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.
You might need to click on it to enlarge it:

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

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.

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

That was added in the second edition (link).
