Cujo (Sep 1981)

Cujo takes place in Castle Rock.

Yet even in this enlightened age, when so many parents are aware of the psychological damage they may do to their children, surely there was one parent somewhere in Castle Rock - or perhaps one grandmother - who quieted the kids by telling them that Frank Dodd would get them if they didn't watch out, if they weren't good. And surely a hush fell as children looked toward their dark windows and thought of Frank Dodd in his shiny black vinyl raincoat, Frank Dodd who had choked ... and choked ... and choked.

The Dark Half (Oct 1989)

Takes place in Castle Rock.

Everything's Eventual (Mar 2002)

The narrator references a story from nearby Castle Rock (and also mentions having written for the Castle Rock Call for 20 years, so maybe he ended up moving there later in life.) Pretty sure this reference inspired the novella "1922" in the later collection Full Dark No Stars.

We hunkered and listened to the wind in the chimney and hoped no one would get sick or break a leg or get a headful of bad ideas, like the farmer over in Castle Rock who had chopped up his wife and kids three winters before and then said in court that the ghosts made him do it.
