The next novel I plan to read as part of my Stephen King Project is Cujo.
Cujo is one of his earlier books. I’ve read it a few times.
> Cujo won the British Fantasy Award in 1982
> Cujo was adapted for the screen in 1983 starring Dee Wallace Stone. The ending is different from the novel
> Cuji is set in Castle Rock, Maine. This town features in many of King’s works including IT and Needful Things
> Cujo is linked to King’s novel The Dead Zone through the psychotic killer cop Frank Dodd
> Cujo’s name was based on the nom de guerre of Willie Wolfe who was one of them who orchestrated the kidnapping and brainwashing of Patty Hearst
> King is famously quoted as saying he has no memory of writing Cujo because he was off his face on drugs and alcohol at the time
> Cuji is referenced in other works by King including Pet Semetary and The Dark Half
