I agree but I prefer Dean Koontz for horror. King is so unpredictable. I mean he could make the good guys win, the bad guys win, everyone loose or you find out that the good guys were really the bad guys all along or vice versa. LOL
With Koontz even if it looks really bleak and scary eventually good triumphs. He's the HEA of the horror genre LOL

Anyhow back to King...I LOVED Nightmares & Dreamscapes. I still have that collection. I liked Dreamcatcher and Needful Things, but never made it through The Tommyknockers. Started that in high school and made it 1/3 in before I left it for more Anne Rice.

I will be reading his Dark Tower graphic novel tho and when The Stand comic comes out I'm getting that too.

lol Tommyknockers is creepy I don't blame you for leaving it "Tommyknockers Tommyknockers knocking at the door"
IT had made my fear of clowns so much greater I am deathly afraid of them, and 1408 was a headache too much was going on
I got Dark Tower for free last week one of my moms coworkers was looking for a certain book and she bought DT and it was the wrong book so she gave it to me and have Duma Key so I have to read those

I found out the hard way that a Stephen King book is not for bedtime reading! My imagination is bad enough, I had nightmares for weeks!

The only of his books that I've read was It. I enjoyed it, but horror is not for me. My imagination runs wild while I sleep. I have to be careful of what I read or watch after a certain time.

I used to be a religious King fan-read everything, collected everybook. I waited on pins and needles for the end of the gunslinger series. I was so disgusted with the way he ended that series, after the amount of time and money I put into it, that I have not bought nor read another King book since. I know he has said he has a hard time with ending a story, but he really let down his readers, IMO. When we moved this summer I donated all my King books (with the exception of IT, the Stand, and the Talisman-my fave) to the library. I miss his stories though, the humor and wackiness he puts in them go far beyond the 'horror' (I never saw his books as true horror, not like Koontz or Barker).Anywho, my 2 cents.
