Confession: I got my graffiti tag name “Bango Skank” from King, and I spray paint “BANGO SKANK WAS HERE” in random places all over, hoping to brighten another King fans day.


Confession: I started reading Stephen King because of Anthrax - Among the Living. Best decision I ever made!


Confession: My favorite part of any King book is the introduction. I just love the way King speaks to us, the readers, in his own voice.


Confession: 11/22/63 was the first book i read by Stephen kKing, and it’s helped me through not only my own depression, but the guilt of not meeting my best friend earlier so I could’ve helped him before he was bullied. I guess I sort of hope I’ll find my own rabbit hole to fall into and change the future.


Confession: I want to fight Stephen King.


A lot of people criticize King for reusing tropes and character types over and over, but I don’t think that that is necessarily such a bad thing. He’s able to write in such a way as to make elements like psychics and children who are wiser than adults feel different when or if they come up. And if you think about it, in a way, Jack Torrance can be seen as a slightly younger version of Bart Dawes from Roadwork. And Charlie Decker is the teenage version of that. All emotionally unstable males angry at society and what has become of themselves and their worlds around them. But, the way it’s written, it feels distinct in each work.

Have you read Needful things?

Yes! Do you have a specific question about it?

Confession: I spent the last 359 pages of The Dark Tower crying like a baby. There wasn’t a single page after 313 that lifted my spirits. Apart from one.

Confession: I really lost faith with Stephen King’s writing after his accident. Seemed as if he was publishing his grocery list and not really trying. But his last several books have, in my mind, have utterly redeemed him as the King Of Horror.

Confession: I’m about to finish reading The Stand, and I’ve got this need to know where Jess is! I need to know what happened to him! This is a great book, I don’t know why I find Randall and Lloyd more interesting and attractive, but I need to know about Jess.
