The myriad worlds and universes King has created are, in reality, one world, one universe. Here is the guide to that universe.

      The Complete Stephen King Universe is the only definitive reference work that examines all of Stephen Kings novels, short stories, motion pictures, miniseries, and teleplays, and deciphers the threads that exist in all of his work.  This ultimate resource includes in-depth story analyses, character breakdowns, little-known facts, and startling revelations on how the plots, themes, characters, and conflicts intertwine.

      After discovering The Complete Stephen King Universe, you will never read Stephen King the same way again.

"This book might be one of the single most important books about Stephen King ever written . . . Beginning with the premise that all of King's work is intertwined in an intricate weave of overlapping narrative threads, with the world of the Dark Tower as the linchpin around which everything else orbits, Wiater, Golden, and Wagner carefully prove their point, in an entertaining, intriguing, and thoroughly indisputable way."—Stephen Spignesi, author of The Essential Stephen King

 

"Here is the Stephen King companion to end all Stephen King companions . . . The three authors bring their considerable expertise to a survey of the complete King fictional corpus, grouping novels and tales by setting and theme. An indispensable insider's guide to the influences on King, his plots and characters, TV and film adaptations, and more."—Publishers Weekly
