Happy Birthday, Stephen King!

Stephen King“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” – Stephen King

Today marks the 65th birthday of author Stephen King, the icon of horror fiction novels.

Stephen King (also using the pseudonym Richard Bachman, a more gruesome voice) writes Horror, dark Fantasy, and Psychological Suspense. King tells fast-paced stories in conversational language. His appealing heroes and terrible villains arise from our innermost nightmares into the everyday world, which becomes an increasingly twisted landscape. Protagonists are usually sympathetic, often from among society’s outcasts. Whether focused on the real-world horrors of abuse or on supernatural terrors, good-vs.-evil is King’s most common theme: The protagonist’s growing power must rise to meet the challenge of the horrific. Start with: The Shining.
