The Kingdom is an unofficial title referring to the collected works of famed horror and fantasy author Stephen King. Many of his novels and short stories have been adapted into films, television movies and television programs. There are a large number of King's works that operate within a shared continuity, which is to say: there are characters, events and settings that all occur within the same reality. However, not everything that King has ever published can be shoe-horned into the same arena. Stephen King has also written numerous works under the pen name of Richard Bachman.
