Day 20 of October Horror Month: The Works of Stephen King

Stephen Edwin King (born September 21, 1947) is an American author of contemporary horror, suspense, science fiction and fantasy fiction. His works have sold over 500 million units, they’ve been adapted in every creative medium, and as of 2010 he has written and published 49 novels and various works.

Little needs to be said to recommend the works of Stephen King. If he wrote in any genre save Horror I believe he’d be worshipped as a pop culture God, even more than he is right now. When his work Salem’s Lot was adapted to be shown on television, a family hour medium, I ended up scared enough to sleep with a light on in my room. Without splatter, without vulgarity, without excess violence or nudity, his story was still scary.

The only story of Stephen King's that I have read and not liked is Stationary Bike. I got a good laugh though.

He deserves great accolades, but his work in a "genre" may well keep that from happening as a great writer.
