Step foot in the Overlook Hotel and put your knowledge to the test. You might do well with these Stephen King trivia questions and answers. There’s more to the King’s collection than the story of an alcoholic writer and a haunted hotel, but that’s where the fun begins, right?

Stephen King is a master of horror who delivers memorable characters plunged into deep waters, often with a mystical twist. Stand with Mother Abigail against the Walking Dude or escape a maniacal nurse obsessed with your character in Misery. Don’t forget his less-horror, more dramatic tales that became fast favorites, like The Green Mile and the novella that inspired the movie, The Shawshank Redemption.

Fans who can pass this Stephen King quiz might avoid self-driving cars after reading Christine or sidestep every Saint Bernard they pass. Red balloons and clowns might make you a little queasy, and you might back away from creepy, overgrown pet cemeteries.
