DID YOU KNOW?
At the time of this writing, he is about to celebrate his 72nd birthday in just a few days. In a few more years, he is gonna turn 80, still alive and kicking. And by the time you are able to read this (or not) he is still the master of all genres. An old hand at writing, the master of horror--he is Stephen King.
With more than sixty novels in more than four decades of unfaltering passion for writing, King has surely had his fair share of successes and failures. Yet, there's more to his novels than just fantasy and horror. For instance, The Shining. Well, it's just one of the Stephen King movies adapted from the book of the same name. But did you know that the story was based on real-life? HIS real life to be exact. The story revolves around a dysfunctional family with Jack Torrance being a violent father. He would atrociously break his son's arm when he is intoxicated--a case which King admitted to having years ago. Yes, you read that right. King openly talked about his darkest moments when he would lash out at his children due to his guilt and frustration. Those were also the years when he couldn't support his family, but thanks to his success, he was able to overcome it. Anyway, enough of his personal horror, did you know that Stephen King was once hit by a van? But wait, he bought the van that hit him! He blew up $1500 just to wreck the van himself! Whoa, that was easy money down the drain. Well, if you are a certified fan, you might want to check our collection of the best Stephen King novels. Or perhaps, you are interested to read non-horror books by Stephen King himself!
