"The Reploids" is a short story originally published in the 1988 anthology Dark Visions, along with "Dedication" and "Sneakers"; it is the only of the three stories that remains uncollected.

The story is likely linked to King's Dark Tower series.


The story concerns the investigation of detectives Richard Cheyney and Pete Jacoby into the bizarre appearance of author Edward Paladin on the Tonight Show. The detectives find strange items in Paladin's possession, including studio-passes in the wrong color, and a bright blue dollar bill with a portrait of James Madison on it.
