Hello Iím new here and a totally addicted fan of all of Stephen Kings works. Obvious I realise as if I wasnít why would I have stumbled across this site. Over the past 30 or so years Iíve read and reread as many if not all of the great mans works as I can get my hands on if it wasnít for my son I would be able to say apart from the news papers ive read little or nothing else since my first addiction. But im sorry Mr King I couldnít read some of your works to him to early in his life but by 12 he was reading some them by his own choice and now heís in his 20ís Iíve had to lock the hardbacks editions up as they kept growing legs.
Any how Hi To you all site looks Awesome and I hope me being a total CTD wont ruin it all for youís
Iím Alan son of Stan hailing from Norfolk UK (land of the great carrot crunches) Gunslinger Iím not (never figured out why anyone would throw a gun at someone when shooting would be more effective Ö ok sorry im not that funny either Ö hang on go back to throwing guns at least ill only get bruised not shoot lol)
HI there all -
Long time listener, first time caller here.
I've been reading Mr. King from age 6, so that's 21 years and counting for me. Should have started with The Eyes of the Dragon rather than with It. Mom was wondering why I had such an aversion to storm drains and showers till I was 8....ha ha.
I usually stay away from too much forum-y goodness due to an addictive personality, but I just couldn't resist. Especially since my fiance and I are planning a dyed-in-the-wool SK wedding and need a little help with a few ideas, so I'll be posting/pleading with my questions soon. Long days and pleasant nights to those in this new place I can call home...
I started reading Stephen King around a year ago. I picked up IT at Barnes N Noble and haven't looked back since! I have read 17 of his books and I really love his writing style! I like that he writes so many books too, almost makes me feel guilty for not having read them all yet.
My favorite Stephen King novels are IT, The Stand, Dreamcatcher, and Pet Sematary. Of course, the rest are awesome as well, but I don't need to tell you that, right guys?
Anyways, thanks for having me on this forum, hopefully I'll show up more and discuss the books in this wonderful world Stephen King created!
Ok, so I'm doing things a little backwards here. First, I registered...all good there. Then, I went straight to Novels and posted a new thread under my favorite (I'm thinking this should have been done last), then I posted under the Newbies Start Here thread (should have been second), now I'm posting here. Guess I should've taken more time to figure all this out. Then again, I've never been known to do anything slowly and methodically-usually just jump right in, sometimes regretting it!
Anyway, I'm here, and I love Stephen King, and I have to catch up because I haven't read a lot of his older stuff.
I live in the southeast US and my favorite thing to do is read. I read almost everything fiction and some "based on a true story" books. I don't have a favorite genre, just a favorite writer (that would be SK). I've tried to get my teenagers interested in King, but neither of them seems willing to spend the time to get into his storylines. My daughter is afraid of him. She said that she started to read Pet Sematary, but couldn't finish it because it scared her too much. Am I a terrible mom for laughing?
Anyway, I'm sending a shout-out to all you other King fans, it's a wonderful thing to be part of a group that has such great taste!
Now and then I stopped by and visited this great site. I found it time to be part of the board and hopefully I will contribute something valuable. My alltime favourite book is IT. The book, the TV-series and the upcoming movie(s) have my special interest.
Well I am new to the forums -- sent here by the fabulous Facebook group Stephen King Central. I, like all of you, am an enormous Stephen King fan and have read the majority of his works (still working on a few) and have seen all the films based on his novels. Hands down favorite would be "The Stand" -- both the novel and the miniseries. I can watch the miniseries over and over -- I never tire of it nor do I of the novel which I try to read once a year. Anyway -- HELLO!
