A Dark and Stormy May 29th

Filed under: General — m759 @ 12:13 PM

He had come a long way to this blue lawn,
and his dream must have seemed so close
that he could hardly fail to grasp it.
He did not know that it was already behind him,
somewhere back in that vast obscurity
beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic
rolled on under the night.

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

— Epigraph to Limitless: A Novel , by Alan Glynn

Glynn's novel was originally published in 2002 under the title
The Dark Fields

Compare and contrast —

Stephen King's IT  was first published by Viking in 1986.

See as well the May 29th date mentioned by King.
