Why is it so?

Thought I'd start a topic where we can ask questions, that others (or Authors) may be able to answer...

My idea, So I'll start

In Stephen Kings' The Stand. Randall Flagg, is Reincarnated and has another name with the initials "RF".. what is the significance of this?

Flagg is a reoccurring character in King's books. He often goes by names with the initials RF such as Russell Faraday, Richard Fannin, Richard Freemantle, and Rudin Filaro. Lots of King's books take place in worlds related to each other in someone. King is just letting the reader know that this connection exist. The Dark Tower series takes place in another world but Insomnia, Black House, and The Talisman all seemingly take place in our world but revel ties to the Dark Tower world.

Thankyou, I am aware that a lot of Kings' works are connected but didn't know if there was some other significance. I havnt read the three stories you mentioned.. but will be tracking them down.. Trev.
