Submission + - Meet the Guy Who Fact-Checks Stephen King on Stephen King (wired.com)

cartechboy writes: Stephen King has sold more than 300 million books of horror, suspense, science fiction and fantasy. The guy has written so many works, and words, that he actually needs a "continuity adviser" to fact check him when he picks old stories up as a new book. Enter Rocky Wood — who it turns out is, wow, the world-wide leading expert on Stephen King’s work. So much so, that King hired Wood (who has authored a 6000+ page encyclopedia on CD-ROM on every single aspect of King's work — including 26,000 different King characters) to fact check himself when he writes. At the end of The Shining'—does Jack knock out Dick Hallorann’s teeth or his dentures with that roque mallet? Wood knows.
