Question of the Day #15: What SK book have you read multiple times?

IT, because I got sooo scared the first time I read IT, I had to put it down for a while.  So I haven't fully read it 2x (but almost).

Question of the Day #14: Will you watch Under The Dome mini-series on HBO?

Absolutely, I will watch Under The Dome religiously.  I am especially looking forward to the special effects on this one.  I'm curious how the actors will portray his characters, especially Big Jim Rennie, Andy Sanders and Barbie.   Dish DVR ,so it can be watched again and again.  Can't wait.  :-)

New Poem

Stephen King's new poem will appear in the March 2010 issue of Playboy.  The name of the poem is Tommy.  If you get a chance to read it, could you post your thoughts on the new poem?  Don't read Playboy, so I'm going to have to wait until it is published in another book.

Question of the Day #13: How do you feel about SK changing the end of Cell for the film?

IMO, Cell should be left as it was originally written and have alternate endings added.  I Am Legend had alternate endings, so I feel it could be done successfully without completley changing what SK wrote.

Question of the Day #9: Who could fill the boots of Roland Deschain, if Dark Tower Series ever gets made into a movie?

Johnny Depp could do it!  He is a brilliant actor.  He could play him with ease.  Who do you think?  (I am just about dying to see what other people think.)

Joe Hill's got Horns

Check the interview widget down the right side of this page.  Interview with Joe Hill about his new book Horns.  The reviews have been great for this book.  Could this be  another Bram Stoker award?  Go Joe!

Stephen King writes about the 'Jay Leno Show'

Published a few weeks ago in EW.   I just came across this article about the 10-11 PM time slot on NBC.  Stephen King discusses his thoughts on Jay Leno's failed show and The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.  He also thinks back on when he met Jay Leno. 

Friday Night Lights and The Good Wife are shows that are both mentioned in the article.  These are the types of shows he would like to see put in the 10-11 PM time slot.

Question of the Day #7: When reading SK's books, what intrigues you the most about his writing?

Mostly I am in awe of his character development.  When he writes about someone, I feel like I had just personally met them.  To me, that is a very difficult thing to do as a writer, making the reader feel "close" to a fictional character.  Whether it be anger, endearment, distaste, pity, fear, joy, sadness, he manages to make me feel all of these feelings (and many more) when he writes.  There is just so much depth to each character he creates.  The other thing about his writing that intrigues me is just how much he has written and continues to write.  Articles, short stories, novellas, screenplays, novels, you name it he writes it.

Dr. Sleep or The Wind Through The Keyhole

Stephen King has yet to start either book, according to Ms. Mod. on the SKMB.  The Wind Through The Keyhole is the Mid-World book and Dr. Sleep is the sequel to The Shining.    

Question of the Day #6: Do you think SK has done anything for tourism in Maine?

Yes.  Personally, I feel that his love of the state of Maine is well represented in his writing, which gives the reader a desire to want to visit his beautiful state of Maine (during the summer months, of course).

Question of the Day #5: What SK work would you suggest for a middle schooler to read?

My son (12) has shown some interest in reading some of Stephen Kings' works.  I wanted to get him started on some of his short stories, I suggested The Cat From Hell and Stationary Bike from Just After Sunset. (Stories that wouldn't disrupt his sleep TOO much)  He liked them both very much.  I also suggested The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon but I think the thought of him reading about a girl throughout the whole story didn't appeal to him very much.

Question of the Day #2: Which of Stephen King's characters do you most relate to and why?

Beverly "Bev" Marsh from IT, mainly because Beverly eventually realizes her self worth and stands up for herself,  after years of being abused in bad relationships. Even with all of her character flaws she had many redeeming qualities.

Happy Valentine's Day from All Things Stephen King

King's love story.  Enjoy!

Question of the Day #1: Which book, short story, novella would you like to see made into a movie?

New site questions added daily.  Post your answers, all posts are read by admin.

The Gunslinger from the Dark Tower Series, for sure. Visually it would be amazing and it would also introduce Roland to the world, especially those who don't read. Maybe it would entice those people to begin to read the series.  If they could make a movie for Lord of the Rings, why not, the DT Series?

Nightmares and Dreamscapes

It is taking me a little while to get through Nightmares and Dreamscapes.  This well-done series has many elements to it.  I don't want any of it to be lost when revising my first draft.  I have only gotten through the first two in the series, Battleground and Crouch End.  Collectively they are over 2,200 words.  They are going to take some time to revise, plus, I have some research to do on them too.   

Sunday, February 7, 2010

So many inches of snow have fallen since my last post.

We had no power for about 17 hours, so posting was difficult.  There should be some new content added sometime tomorrow about Nightmares and Dreamscapes that was made for TV in 2006.  I watched it once (loved the quality of this series) but now I am going to go through each episode throughly and write about each one.  This was an award-winning series.

Want a DARK novel to read for Valentine's Day?

Joe Hill, Stephen King's son, wrote a book that was published a few years back about a guy named Judas Coyne. Judas is a mature rocker that is a collector of macabre items. When he gets an email to add one more dark item to his ever-growing collection he can't resist the temptation.  Heart-Shaped Box speeds through to the climax.  Rock, goth, fear and death for the masses, good job Joe.
