** In a reissued collection of the "Bachman" books, King wrote a [[OverlyLongGag very long introduction]] giving various reasons why he chose to use a pen name for some of his stories. It seemed to boil down to "because I felt like it". Although in recent years, he has stated he wanted to see if his books were selling well just because of his name, or because his books were actually good.

* HilariousInHindsight: In his nonfiction book ''Danse Macabre'', published for the first time in 1981, King says, "If you have seen one film by Creator/WesCraven....it is safe enough, I think, to skip the others" (At that time, Wes's best-known film was probably ''Film/TheLastHouseOnTheLeft'', which Stephen held in low regard).

* CosmicHorrorStory: Tends to favor LovecraftLite, but straight examples do occur, such as "Jerusalem's Lot," "I Am the Doorway," "Crouch End", ''Literature/TheMist'', ''Literature/{{IT}}'', and ''Literature/{{Revival}}''.


Added DiffLines:

* ContrivedCoincidence: ''Gerald's Game'' and ''Misery'' are both set in motion by the stars aligning in such a ludicrous fashion that you kind of have to laugh. But the protagonist's ensuing predicament is awful enough that you won't be laughing for long.
