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.
