On this day in Horror History: Stephen King

Happy Birthday Stephen King!

On this  the 21st of September in 1947 one of my favorite horror authors was born. 

That’s right folks:

The Sultan of The Dark Tower

Chief of Cujo

Monarch of childhood fears everywhere, 

It’s Mr. Stephen King, and he’s turning 66 today.

As usual, things are busy in the world of Mr. King. As you can see on his website.

The next installment of the Dark Tower graphic novel is out now. I’m looking forward to reading it. The artwork is always tantalizing and pairs up so well with the narratives.


In TV land, Season 2 of Under the Dome 
 is well underway. The series “chronicles the lives of Chester’s Mill’s residents as they struggle to survive under a mysterious dome cutting them off from the outside world.”

 Season 1 is free on Amazon Prime and the 4 most recent episodes can be found on CBS.com

In the arena of novels his newest thriller hit the market in June. Mr. Mercedes.

In the gloomy pre-dawn hours of a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of unemployed hopefuls are lined up for a job fair. Without warning, a merciless driver plows through the crowd in a roaring Mercedes. Eight people are killed; 15 are wounded. The killer escapes into the early-spring fog never to be seen from again. Until now…” 

I have this man to thank for my fear of clowns, and my obsession with typewriters. So happy birthday master of horror; Stephen King.
