bachman king overdrive

BlazeStephen King has been allotted more shelf space in my personal library than any other author. More than Charles Bukowski, more than Richard Matheson, more than Douglas Adams, hell more than all these authors combined.

I know that a great many critics think Stephen King’s work is crap. Steven King is aware that many critics believe his work is crap… like Stephen himself, I don’t give two shits. I truly believe he is not only one of the most productive and creative American writers of the last 50 years, but also one of the most inspiring.

My gf picked up two new (at least to me) King books for me a few days ago and I really am enjoying Blaze. It was written before Carrie, locked away in a trunk apparently and only recently released from captivity. I’m glad he chose to publish this book and I am sure millions of his fans agree.

  1. King has much more to offer than simply horror. He wrote Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption (shawshank redemption), The Body (Stand By Me), The Green Mile, and now BLAZE. None of those stories are horror.

  2. I read Stephen King for the first time recently — The Stand. I enjoyed it. After reading the book I read one of his interviews — he’s an interesting guy.
