I have another UTD related question (or somewhat UTD related question)...
Does anyone know if Mr King was ever a dungeon master? (the dungeons and dragons kind, not the s & m kind lol) In UTD, more so than any other SK story, I (as the reader) felt like a player character surrounded by non-player characters, each with their own individually assigned alignments and personalities.
It isn't a bad thing, I love SK's characters and I love UTD. I'm just curious.
We all know that this gifted writer will someday be touted as one of the best at writing "Americana". I have never read an author that knows how to portray boys like this one! As I don't usually do the forum thing( deadly slow Dinosaur Dial-Up! )I'll keep this short. Anyone know if Mr King published this "Under the Dome" story in print? I found this choice very interesting(didn't like the way the TV twits advertised it though, made it look like a Soap!) after reading Robt. McCammon's "Stinger".
Hope you can guide me to a shot story by Mr. King that I may have missed about the Dome. I am crazy 'bout Battleground(in the short story collection "Night Shift" and read this story to both of my sons in the late 70's).
As has been stated, Under the Dome is a novel, over 1000 pages. It's a good read, but the series differs from the novel in many respects. Just don't read the novel and expect it to be like the TV series.
