Yes, that's right, Stephen King. The most amazing horror author in history, my favorite author of all time. His books are
truly amazing, his descriptions, his charachters, all so finely described and full of life. He has taken horror writing to the next level and beyond, my
favorite book of his many writings is "The Stand - Complete & Uncut".
Stephen King's films only give life to his beautifully written novels, adding faces to the names and beautiful scenery to
the background. His books and films are listed below along with some background information...he is the best writer of all time, in my opinion.
A Piece From "The Stand":
"...He tried the door at the far end of the office, and it
opened. Beyond the door was a hallway lit by muted
fluorescents. Halfway down to the elevator bank, an abandoned
gurney cart stood by what was probably the nurses' station.
He could hear faint groaning. Someone was coughing, a
harsh ratcheting sound that seemed to have no end.
He went back into the room, gathered his clothes up, and
put them under one arm. Then he went out, closed the door
behind him, and started down the hall. His hand was sweating
against the grip of Elder's gun. When he reached the
gurney he looked behind him, unnerved by the silence and
the emptiness. The cougher had stopped. Stu kept expecting
to see Elder creeping or crawling after him, intent on carrying
out his final directive..."
