* ''The Colorado Kid'' -- Murder mystery that ends [[spoiler:as unsolved as ever]]. Served as (extremely) loose inspiration for the [[Creator/SciFiChannel SyFy]] television series ''Series/{{Haven}}''. Inspired by the real-life "Somerton Man" case.

While calling him a "horror writer" grossly understates and undervalues much of his career and work, he undoubtedly remains one of the most important authors in that genre, and many consider him to be the heir to the legacy begun by Edgar Allan Poe, passed down to H.P Lovecraft and then to King, with no apparent successor in sight (yet). King has, in the past, referred to himself as "ABLB" or "America's Best Loved Boogeyman," a title he sees as originating with Alfred Hitchcock, then passed on to Rod Serling, and then to him. Long typecast as a horror novelist, the success of films like Film/TheShawshankRedemption and Film/StandByMe, among others, have finally earned him some credit as a good writer both within the horror genre and in others as well.

** There's a massive example in ''Literature/ElevenTwentyTwoSixtyThree'' - the first bit of the book takes place in Derry, Maine, the setting of ''Literature/{{IT}}''. Jake goes there to stop a man from killing his family and being sent to [[TheShawshankRedemption Shawshank]]. During his time there, he meets Richie and Beverly, visits the storm drain where George was killed, and hears Pennywise calling out to him at the ruins of a local ironworks. Later on, he moves to Jodie, Texas, where he hears of a rival football team from nearby town of Arnette, where Stu lives at the beginning of ''The Stand''. The title vehicle from ''Christine'', as well as the Takuro Spirit, a car mentioned several times in ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'', make appearances as well.

** King is a proud owner of a Welsh Corgi, a particularly adorable breed of dog. The dog itself actually shows up in TheDarkTower series. More amusingly, a fictional corgi nearly saves the day in UnderTheDome, though a human screws up the corgi's gift.

* FunctionalAddict: King was a raging alcoholic and drug user who had the continence to write damn near anything and have it pass editing. This is the author who was so coked out of hos mind that he doesn't remember writing ''Cujo''. If anything, all those substances must have made him write with more symbolism and analogy, not less.
