    That's part of why a horror novel can fuck with me so bad. It's not what the author puts in it. It's what my minds turns it into as it runs like mad for the deepest darkest corners of my screwed up head. I've seen and been through enough fucked up (nowhere near Cori's level, or some others) that my mind has plenty of fuel when given the match of a book.

    well, I'm not a writer and definitely not educated in any form of journalism or the like... so I like King and Suzanne Collins, and all that. It's inventive enough for me without making me look up every other word for clarification of its descriptive meaning. I'm easy like that.

    Just tell me a story. That's all I ask for.

    That being said, I thoroughly enjoy the Dark Tower Series and see there is a new addition recently avaiable on Amazon that I absolutely cannot wait to buy.

    so glad to know he writes to metallica. Metallica is my favorite rock band. Guess that's why I like his books. We're on the same "level" or something.

    I get that. I've just never had that sort of reaction.
    I LOVED to watch horror, and read horror, as a kid.
    My brother OTOH was a bit different...
    He is a year and a half older than me... and PAID me to sleep in his room after we watched The Exorcist.
    I was about 6. (My mother was still alive).
    That just cracks me up!

    Also, we had to walk about a mile and a half home up a dead end dirt road after we got off the bus from school...
    At the beginning of the road were a couple of houses, but after that nothing until ours...
    Except, about halfway was an OLD abandoned cemetery.
    Lots of sunken graves and headstones you can't even read anymore (it's still there).
    I used to tell my brother stories about it as we were walking past it and scare him so bad he would sprint the rest of the way home.
    I used to go in there and lay on one of the really big fallen headstones and chill and watch the sky, and critters, and birds...
    And brother would never bother me there... because h was too chicken to come in.
    I still find old graveyards to be wonderful, peaceful, places.

    I went through a King phase early (decades ago), but then got over it and wasn't impressed with what he released through the late nineties and naughties. There were a few books of his I started and simply lost interest in, and didn't have the heart to wade through the rest of.

    However, his recent '11/22/63' I began (on a friend's recommendation) and really enjoyed, to my surprise. Then again, I'm always a sucker for time-travel stuff.

    Panda, I am looking forward to your slashfest! (No, not *that* sort of slashfest ... although that would be fun too.)

    Hooray!!! Maybe I'll post some chapters from the first book on Pandaloonery for entertainment in September. (And then everyone can bask in the horror of a first draft.)

    King puts out a good book every few years and a lot of junk-food horror in between. It's like he churns out the mediocre stuff because it sells like crazy and works on something awesome on the side. The trick is actually hitting the good ones.

    I've never read any Stephen King. I've never been into horror, either film or books - although some of the fantasy & sci-fi I've read has been pretty dark. But he has a fantasy series, doesn't he? Should I read it?

    Okay, back to reading my way through this incredible journal...
