Spooky September Challenge - Tribute to your favorite Horror Writer.




I'm participating in Parajunkee's Spooky September Challenge! Today's writing prompt is a tribute to my favorite Horror Author.  If you checked out my Spooky September post from yesterday, it's no surprise that my favorite Horror Author is Stephen King.

I'm pretty sure my first SK book was his short story collection, Skeleton Crew.  After that, I can't remember what I read chronologically, but my favorite book by King, is The Stand.  Some people think he's overrated, some say his endings are horrible (and admittedly, I haven't been impressed by some of them), but then I'll read a short story or read another of his novels and get entertained, thrilled and chilled once again.

Here are some of my favorite posts that I have written about Stephen King.

Happy Birthday Stephen King - my birthday wishes to the Master of Horror.
A Conversation With Stephen King - when he spoke at UMass Lowell in December of 2012.

I always feel torn between It and The Stand, I love both for different reasons, and the same reasons. I think King just gets what it's like to be human, that weather there are monsters or not, we can be the real danger... or the only hope. ;)

My favorite King book is The Shining but mostly because I was so young when I first read it. I drug that book around with me everywhere for a long time. :) It's amazing how much I still love each book he writes.
