Doctor Sleep - Stephen King Joyland - Stephen King

So, early on in Doctor Sleep, Dan Torrance gets a job at an amusement park-type place called Tiny Town.  I swallowed hard, waiting for a crash course on the carny code like we all got in Joyland.  Then I got to thinking maybe Joyland started as an unnecessary piece of Doctor Sleep, excised like an inflamed appendix.
