Planning my month ahead for blog posts was a little easier since we are in “horror” month for Halloween. And while it may not be widely celebrated in my country, I thought it would be nice to celebrate it in my own little way with writing, of course!
So every week I’ll be focusing one post on a different horror writer – someone I’ve read for some posts and someone I haven’t so that I can learn something along the way (and perhaps you will too!)
Stephen King – Horror Writer Extraordinaire
First off is Stephen King who is one of my favourite authors. And he has so many great books to choose from and celebrate. He is without a doubt, one of the most prolific horror writers of his generation. He is also the most followed author on Goodreads. I’ve read many of his books, but the one I remember the most has to be It. Most people have probably seen the movie and then read the book but I read the book way before I saw the movie and now there is also a remake. It’s definitely one of his best in my opinion, and one that leaves a lasting impression about Stephen King’s talent as a writer.
Here is an excerpt from It. For anyone that hasn’t yet read this book, my only advice is don’t read it if you have a fear of clowns…
And one of the best quotes from the book has to be this one which featured in the film as well
“Your hair is winter fire– Stephen king – it
My heart burns there, too.”
I hope you liked the first Halloween Special on Stephen King! If you have any requests for an author to feature in my next post, feel free to let me know in the comments and I’d be happy to oblige.
Stay safe, wear your mask and I’ll catch you all in tomorrow’s posts or in the comments.
