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).

Rats
What kind of discussion did you fine gentlemen have about rats?

My wife and I keep rats and they're wonderful pets. They're like tiny dogs or cats. They're extremely intelligent (more so than cats or dogs in my experience) and great companions. It's really surprising for people that have never been around a pet rat. Ours are litter trained and can do quite a few tricks. They're very easy to train.

Off topic but I also run a turtle sanctuary. I know you're a turtle man yourself so just thought I'd throw that in. The box turtle can't be put back into the wild once it's taken. Kids tend to pick them up and they're unfortunately very hard to care for in captivity. That's where my wife and I come in. I have about 30 box turtles, mainly the Eastern box turtle.

I guess I can get back on topic by quoting Stephen King's Dark Tower.

"See the turtle of enormous girth, on his back he holds the Earth"
