The novel

  • Completely Different Title:
    • The Italian title of the book is "L'Ombra dello Scorpione" ("The Shadow of the Scorpion"). There is a line about Randall Flagg being "the shadow of the owl at midnight and the scorpion at high noon," but since the symbol is never repeated or expanded, it's a somewhat odd choice for the title.
    • On the other hand, the Swedish title, "Pestens Tid" ("The Age/Time of Pestilence/the Plague", depending on how you translate), arguably works better than the original.
    • Advertisement:
    • Ditto for the French title, "Le Fléau" ("The Scourge"/"The Plague").
  • Creator's Favorite: Lloyd Henreid is Stephen King's favourite character in the story.
  • Limited Special Collector's Ultimate Edition: The 1500-page "complete and uncut" edition.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: The book itself was one before King re-released it with some updated material. It has since become one again.
