But Only Darkness Loves Me (unpublished, unfinished and date unspecified): Today, only two pages of the typed and handwritten manuscript remain. The first page was typewritten, while the second was handwritten. Both pages can be found in box 1012 in the Raymond H. Fogler Library, and are freely accessible to the public. The first and only part of the story (named “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World) concerns a boy who is talking to a beautiful girl in a bar in Ledge Cove, Maine. She is apparently too beautiful to look any other way but indirectly. She then invites the boy back to her hotel room, but he ends up leaving her in the lobby and not going to her room. This tale was written with King’s eldest son Joseph (Joe Hillstrom King).
