Located in Stephen King’s fictional version of Maine, the fictional town of Castle Rock has been the setting of several King stories, beginning with 1979’s The Dead Zone. Other stories, novels, and novellas set in Castle Rock include Cujo, The Body (which became Stand By Me), The Dark Half, and Needful Things, and the town has been at least mentioned in most of King’s books.
For the first time in many years, we’re soon headed back to Castle Rock.
Cemetery Dance Publications founder and owner Richard Chizmar just revealed over on Facebook that he recently finished a novella with King, and though he wasn’t at liberty to reveal the plot details or even the title, Chizmar did break the exciting news of the story’s setting:
Regarding the novella I recently finished writing with Stephen King… I can’t tell you the title yet. I can’t tell you the plot synopsis. And I can’t tell you publication details. But I can tell you that readers will soon be heading back to a small town in Maine called Castle Rock.
Released in 1991, Needful Things was billed as “the last Castle Rock story.”
