Stephen King is an American writer, who primarily writes Horror books. He appears as himself in the episode "Insane Clown Poppy" at the book convention. His book The Shining and the film have been referenced in "Treehouse of Horror", "Brother from the Same Planet" and "Treehouse of Horror V".
The episode "The Blunder Years" references the film Stand By Me, which was based on the novella "The Body" by King.
King's 2009 novel Under the Dome bore a plot that is very similar to The Simpsons Movie although it was just a coincidence.
King also plays with Matt Groening and Amy Tan in the band the Rock Bottom Remainders.
