The Ultimate Stephen King Reference
I imagine I will over the years. It was so filled with information I can see myself going back to it in the future. I loved hearing the background information about some of my favorite books.
Having a retrospective of his body of work, what critics opinions were and the different inspirations he had for the stories.
Not really. Just happy to hear the details about one of my favorite authors and some of my favorite books
I reread Gerald's Game because of this and I am glad I did.
