This isn't a claim. I have two questions regarding Stephen King. But first off, let me explain...

Childhood memories aren't exactly reliable. Growing up, my dad often had his nose in a book. Many of these were written by Stephen King.

My dad would often say how brilliant the book "Four Seasons" is. (contains the well renowned Shawshank Redemption).
I couldn't find it, until very recently when I discovered it on Kindle under the name "Different Seasons".

I looked it up online to see if there had been a name change but apparently it had always been Different Seasons. I vaguely recall my father owning the book Four Seasons. The closest I could find was a Chinese translation of the book on Amazon with the name Four Seasons.

So my question is: does anybody else remember the book as Four Seasons?
Or is this fascination with the Mandela Effect getting to me?

Another question is also this: As a child, I could remember Stephen King was dead. Roughly three years ago I discovered a book written by King called Joyland. I assumed that it was an unpublished work, but later found out he was still alive and still writing. I was a little surprised, but shrugged it off and never thought twice about it. Until now. Does anybody else remember him being dead?

Disclaimer: Only bringing this to attention as a potential Mandela Effect case. Debunkers and explanations opposing the idea are welcome. But I'm also interested to see if perhaps others have shared my vague memories.

I am going to ask my mom, she has a King library and she has read them all multiple times.

I am also a Stephen King fan.

The Dark Tower series is the best thing I have ever read. What an adventure that was........

ETA: he has always been alive in my memory. He killed himself in a book once though I believe. He got hit by a car, or nearly hit by a car and wrote about it? something like that

eta: I'm from maine.

King died?

How old are you?

Could that correspond with his nearly being killed when he was struck by a car?

In the other thread someone mentioned that the translations from other languages seem to sometimes stick to the original.

For instance Diary of a Vampire still translates as Diary of a vampire even though in english it's now Diary of The Vampire.

I have no particular memories of Stephen King though.

The Four Seasons was a popular movie. It goes way back to that childhood. Maybe you got the two mixed up?

I would swear on a Bible it was "a" not "the."

Which book was this where he killed himself?

The only thing I can remember is that book the Dark Half, where the writer kills off one of his characters. I've never read nor heard of the book where he kills himself.

I thougjt it was Four seasons. Also looking on Amazon the cover is different to what I remember.
I was sure the cover was four square images in different colours?

I'm 25. I grew up in the 90's and 2000's. It was mid to late 90s when my dad read those books.

I have never heard of him nearly dying in a car accident too.

From what I could recall, in the late 90s I believed Stephen King was one of those dead literary geniuses.

But this could also be my ignorance. I never read or kept up with Stephen King book releases when I was in my pre teens and through to my adulthood.

Me too. I also remember a dark yellow/beige colour?

Mind you, books often get released with different covers, editions etc.

I also wonder if its to do with geographic location. Perhaps it was called Four Seasons in other countries? I'm from Australia.

And the Chinese translation is also called Four Seasons.

I have a first edition, it is Different Seasons.


However, in my timeline the seasons are Sprung, Sun, Rakey Time and Shovel the Roof so in effect they really are different seasons.

I seem to remember it as "Different Seasons", and "Interview with a Vampire" (or is the "Diary" one a different book altogether?)

Oh, and I do remember when he was hit by a car and seriously injured!

One Of My All Time Favorites!!!!
Alan Alda and Carol Burnett did such a great job in that movie. I can't tell you how many times I've watched it.

You know, there are times when we type "LOL" as mere net-speak ... and times when it is a description of what just happened.

IN this case, it's the latter: LOL.

(Query: Is rakey time also a good season for reiki?)
