    If someone would like to add a new article to the Short Works forum containing the relevant details for the "General". I will update the TOC and link to it.

    Can a Full Length Feature Film Screenplay really be considered a short work?

    all right...I see where you are getting short work because this book has only reprinted 1/3 of the full CAT'S EYE script. Not the way it was intended to be read because the CAT (our girl names him General only in the last story) is used to tie all 3 stories together and his goal is to save Drew from the gremlin right from the start of the film.
    So Richard Chizmar turned this screenplay into a short work.

    Because I did not own a copy Screamplays I ordered a copy of the trade hardcover edition 2014 (in fine condition for less then 1/2 cover price) & after comparing GENERAL (THE GENERAL) with the screenplays...I find it to be nothing but a bastardized version of Kings full screenplay by Richard Chizmar & feel it dose not qualify as a true King short work. GENERAL by Richard Chizmar based on a screenplay by Stephen King would be more accurate.IMHO

    Just like I would not put this "Gramma" script by Harlan Ellison in King short works.

    Isn't it more probable that King himself revised the version in Screamplays? I don't think Chizmar would ever dare do it himself. Also, long before Screamplays came out, the story has always been referenced as "General"...also by King himself

    If I had done my homework & checked the Screamplays copyright page before making the above statement I would have indeed discovered that King did re-edited his own screenplay as General has a 1997 Stephen King copyright date & the Cats Eye scripts have a 1984 date.
