Stephen King is an American author most famous for his horror novels and short stories. Among his best-known works are The Shining and Carrie.


The Just Crichton and King Bookstore only sells books by Michael Crichton and Stephen King.[1]

Stephen King appeared at a book convention in Springfield. Marge Simpson went up to his table, and, making conversation, asked King what "tale of horror and the macabre" he was working on. King replied that he didn't feel like writing horror at the moment, so he was working on a biography of Benjamin Franklin, where, after discovering electricity, Franklin used it to torture small animals and green mountain men. As King described his biography-in-progress, his voice grew more menacing until he finished by saying, "And that key he tied to a kite? It opened the gates of Hell!" After King was finished, Marge asked King to let her know when he got back to writing horror. His voice went back to normal, and King replied that he would and wrote himself a reminder note to do so.[2]

When the population of Springfield was angry at Bart, Marge asked them what have they ever done. Lenny told her that he has written a best-selling series of mystery novels, The Murderer Did It which Stephen King called "Scary, good fun". Marge then asked if they had an answer besides that, which they didn't.[3]

As revenge Mr. Burns once thought about placing Springfield under a dome based on the Stephen King book Under the Dome.[4]

When the dogs in Springfield were angry at Homer they chased him to his car where he told himself not to panic as this is just like that Stephen King movie, Beethoven, and as long he stays in the car he is safe.[5]

He wrote the book No One Edits Me.[6]

Lenny asked Homer to read his Odder Stuff fanfiction, which he had thrown over the fence to Stephen King, but it hit him on the head. When Homer asked why Lenny tried to get Stephen King to read it, Lenny said that he had a low fence.[7]
