Celebrating Stephen King!

The world of horror would not s-lotbe the same without the one-and-only writer Stephen King. He, of course, is best known for such cult classics as Salem’s Lot, The Stand and The Shining. The author of some 57 novels—including eight under the pseudonym Richard Bachman—Stephen is also the author of 17 novellas, eight works of non-fiction, and 11 short story collections. He has written screenplays, anthe-standd dozens of movies and made-for-TV mini-series have been based on his work.

In addition to being a phenomenally prolific author himself, several of his family members are popular authors in their own right. Stephen King’s wife is writer Tabitha King, author of Pearl, The Book of Reuben and One on One. King’s sons are writers the-shiningJoe Hill and Owen King. Joe Hill writes horror, dark fantasy, and science fiction including the book Horns. Owen King is known for writing short stories. He also co-wrote Intro to Alien Invasion with Mark Jude Poirier and Sleeping Beauties with his father which will be released in 2017.

Not sure where to start with all these reading options? Here are some titles our staff have particularly enjoyed: Cujo, Salem’s Lot and The Stand (all by Stephen King) and NOS4A2 by Joe Hill.
