Re-reading Stephen King

Rereading Stephen King: week six – The Stand | Books | guardian.co.uk

As a bit of a lead-in to my next post, I would like to draw your attention to a series on The Guardian website that emulates the single-theme blogs like the TOTP inspired ‘Yes it’s Number One’ and the exemplary 2000AD ‘Prog Slog’. The series is all about one man, writer James Smythe, revisiting the Stephen Kings books he started reading as a teenager, and doing it in the ordér they were published. With some infectious enthusiasm, good writing and a healthy commenting community to add meat to Smythe’s posts, this is a great way to be persuaded to read / re- read King.
