Thanks for all the replies. I did have a GREAT time. Funny story though coming back from the event. My flight was on Saturday, late. I got to the airport and was hurried on a plane with only one other passenger aboard, one flight attendant and the pilots (or pilots?). The flight attendant said it was pretty rare to have only two people on the plan. She told me she remembered one time, a few years back, where only one person flew. A fog had set over Philadelphia where my connection was and most of the other planes were delayed. I felt like I was in a Stephen King's "The Langoliers" The plane was dark with all the lights off except two. I sat a few rows back from the front seats, however, the other passenger took the front seat. She and the flight attendant spoke throughout the ride, but it still felt too quiet. I started scribbling the story on this reporter's notebook I had. You could see the fog that surrounded us. It was playing pinball with us as we inched closer to land. I have flown several times, but I never worried about not landing until I got on this flight. A spooky ride and I thought maybe it was fitting after a Stephen King trip.
There's nothing quite as awesome as going out to your car on a moonless, cloudy night, opening the door, and having the interior light not come on. It's not creepy at all.
I watched all the videos of this, it was great to see him even if I couldn't be there.
I noticed he mentioned a new book he is writing now titled "Mr. Mercedes". Yay more to read from Uncle Stevie!
MS Mod is there any info on when we might see this in print? Also, we have Dr. Sleep coming in the spring, anything else in the wings for next year?
Joyland will be out June 2013 and Doctor Sleep will be out in September 2013 (not spring).
I've had the privilege and joy to see Mr. King twice - both times in Toronto and he is awesome in person. So down to earth. Very refreshing to see in someone with so much acclaim and success.
Love the fact that I can vicariously live through these other events via these videos. His reading of, 'Afterlife,' was fantastic.
