It’s Stephen King’s Birthday today. A publishing phenomena, King ushered in a whole new generation of horror readers and writers. I’ve been reading his stuff since I was in high school, and though I don’t like everything he’s written, I like most of it. When the man is on, he’s one of the best storytellers around and he’s one of the few people whose books, and especially short stories, have actually scared me. Happy Birthday Stephen. Thanks for all the years of reading.
