East of Eden: In Fannish Terms  
Currently reading John Steinbeck's East of Eden, I can't help myself but mentally refer to the novel's Cathy/Kate plotline as "The Stephen King remix", simply because Kate, as a character, feels so much like a King character, doing King-typical things -- however written from a different perspective, by a different writer with completely different intentions, focus and strengths.

Of course I know how wrong this is, for about a hundred literary reasons. But still, the popular fannish concept of the "remixed" story seems the one best suited to describe my impression.
