The King and I

What a great time last night in Albuquerque, at the Kiva Auditorium.

Stephen King is on tour to promote his new novel, END OF WATCH, the third and concluding volumes in his 'Mercedes killer' trilogy, and the good folks at Bookworks were kind enough to ask me to sit down with him for an hour of conversation.



We talked about childhood, writing, reading, naked day, the nature of evil, and rats.



Went for an hour, but we could have gone for ten. Steve's an amazing guy, and a great writer.

(We hope to be able to offer a video soon. Watch this space).

Wow
What I wouldn't give to have been present for this one, two of the most prolific writers of our time on the same stage, in a reasonably small setting. Fantastic. While reading this blurb I was just thinking "god I hope somebody recorded video of this", then came to the last sentence. PLEASE make that happen George. This is a pretty important meeting of the minds of two of the greats of this generation.

I very much want to see/hear all that was discussed. When I saw the "rats" comment, I flipped out - I've been working on a young adult short story about a war between radiated/super-evolved post apocalyptic mice and rats and a young girl's involvement in their battles. I take this as my sign, I'm on the right track. I think I'm serious about that as a matter of fact...

I hope you and Parris are enjoying your summer George.

Great writers of America. Many people began to read after contact with Tolkien, King, Martin, Rowling, Roald Dahl, with its variations of "mystery, terror and magic." And humanity.

Did we ever get a video or at least transcript of the interview?

Every single article is obsessed with the question about how fucking fast Stephen King writes and are not linking their source.
