    So Descriptive

    He is so descriptive you can see the story unravel in your head. He and Edgar Allen Poe are so much alike except Poe was before the times. Society wasn't ready for this type of lit. King was right on time!

    The King Universe

    I think all of the Stephen King books take place in 1 of 2 universes. The Gunslinger series, The Stand, Christine, IT, Salem's Lot and Eyes of the Dragon all have character cross-overs and mentions in each other. There may be more but that is off the top of my head. His other...

    The Dark Half / Needful Things

    I just got a little kick because I am watching the Dark Half (for the 2nd time, ran one after the other) and have been listening to Needful Things on my Kindle on the way to and from work, 1/2 hour drive each way and Alan Pangborne is in both.  I have listened to, read and or...

    Goodbye Collection!

    While I love the writings of Stephen King, I am just about to donate my entire library of them. Since I have to move and space is limited almost everything he has ever written in softcover is going to the local opportunity shop. I hope someone who loves them as much as I do finds...

    My Favorite Author, Bar None

    The only thing I haven't read was his screen play (I hate screenplays). His book On Writing was fascinating, especially when he talks about nearly being killed by that idiot driver. I enjoyed the DT series, and would have liked to see a movie made from it, but Clint Eastwood...

    Yes

    I love his books, I love the way he builds up a plot and the way he treats his characters and his language. though I must say that I like his earlier books better than some of them he has written lately.

    The Stand.

    I haven't read too many of them. But the few that I have read are absolutely incredible. The Stand is probably one of my very favorite books. It's so real to me, and so unlike what most people think Stephen King is all about (pointless horror and gore, etc). It has a very deep...

    Helps Me Escape

    No matter how many times I read Stephen King's novels, every time is just as amazing as before. And they make it easy for me to get away from any negative feelings I'm having. (favourites are The Dark Tower series, The Green Mile, On Writing and 11/22/63)

    Cars, Clowns, Dogs, Toys, And Refrigerators From Hell

    The magic of Stephen King is that he can take perfectly innocent objects and beings, and demonize them. To me, this is the true genius of the horror fiction genre, that he can make you scared in your own home. Ghosts and witches are fine, but when you feel a nervous shiver go...
