Obsessive Stephen King fans can test their obscure character knowledge with the brand new Stephen King Universe Flowchart.
Designer Gillian James has created a jumbo-sized infographic showing connections between King characters among his many novels. We’ve included a small corner of the chart above, but it was too big for our blog. Follow this link to see the full chart in all its glory. Check it out:
When I was in Grade 5 (guess I was ten), my friend Tarnya Smyth brought her mum’s battered copy of Stephen King’s ‘Carrie’ to school. We broke it into about 4 pieces and passed them around, all taking turns reading each battered section. I told mum about it and she FLIPPED HER WIG and told me to ‘Stop reading that book immediately!!’ So I finished it. Now, I TOTALLY do not recommend ten year olds reading Stephen King books (messed me up good), but this was when my life long relationship with Mr King began. My love for his books is based around his characters. They are so full. I love Stephen King dialogue. I love his sense of humour. And I love the links and connections between the books. I am the kind of annoying person who likes to know the ‘In Joke’. So, of course, I MADE A FLOW CHART!!! (Via Reddit)
