It wouldn’t be Halloween without telling a tale about the author considered the King of Horror.

In truth, this is my own experiences being a Stephen King fan.  For which from a period of 1989 to 1995 I was a complete nut about.  I collected and read everything I could get my hands on written by Stephen King.  That came to an end when I finally picked up the paperback release of Gerald’s Game, which was more a suspense thriller than a horror novel.

I received my contributor’s copy of The Stephen King Library Desk Calendar 2013 from Book-of-the-Month Club and once again they’ve gone above and beyond to create a great gift for any type of Stephen King fan, from the casual reader to the serious collector. The theme this year was “King Anniversaries” and the calendar includes excerpts from King books that are celebrating anniversaries in 2013 including The Stand, Christine, Pet Sematary, Bag of Bones, Duma Key, and more.

As always, editor Jay Franco did an incredible job bringing together a great group of contributors including a lot of old favorites plus some strong new voices.

How are ya? We have much to discuss.” the temper of the one sitting to his right was putting him slightly on edge, but he wasn’t too concerned about it at the moment. He looked back down to the beach and nodded to the pale woman approaching. “hile Daneeka, Come join us.”

Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life. – Stephen King

((those empty spots on the top shelf are the books that are on my mantel. this bookshelf is so close to full))
