Insomnia - Insomnia (novel) - Netflix

Insomnia is a horror/fantasy novel by American writer Stephen King, first published in 1994. Like It and Dreamcatcher, its setting is the fictional town of Derry, Maine. The original hardcover edition was issued with dust jackets in two complementary designs. The first is pictured on the right; the second has the white and red colors reversed. In his memoir, On Writing, King states that Insomnia and Rose Madder are “stiff, trying-too-hard novels.”

Insomnia - Connections to The Dark Tower - Netflix

There are multiple mentions and discussions about “ka” and “ka-tet” in the novel. Insomnia also appears as a book within a book in The Dark Tower series. It is given to Roland Deshain by the character Moses Carver. This “connection” to his quest was “un-earthed” by the Calvins, who claim it to help him on his journey, concluding it was the keystone book to The Dark Tower Series. Roland, however, gave the book away because he thought it would mislead him and that it felt a bit like a “thinny”.

Insomnia marks the first mention of the Crimson King: the primary antagonist of The Dark Tower series. Patrick Danville reappears in The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower as Dandelo's captive in the titular Dark Tower. Danville dreams of the Crimson King, Roland Deschain, and of the Dark Tower in Insomnia, at one point drawing a picture of them.
