The King of Horror

Here's that video I promised.


((Those signed copies of Joe Hill's THE FIREMAN I mentioned are available from the Jean Cocteau website, while the supply lasts. Sorry, we have no signed Stephen King books to offer)).

The Dark Tower
George I'm curious if you have read The Dark Tower. If so what were your thoughts on the narrator's apology prior to its ending? I have always wondered if he felt compelled to write that because he wasn't satisfied with it..

Very good. Thank you!

Slightly off topic but you were discussing olden days and hippies: I just read your "And Death His Legacy" short story. Your "Prophet" is so eerily familiar and the Protagonists fears are so fresh in many of our minds. Was this story based on real people/events?

One of the shortest, but one of the most delightful hours of my life. :D

I must say, this gave me happy tears, seeing two big heroes of mine talk about how they got their start. A lot of King's stories were also in his book, ON WRITING, and I partially credit that book for where I am today as an author. Not only did it motivate and inspire me to sit down and as he said, "tell the goddamned story!" it also worked wonders for my shame at writing romance. Even though I always dreamed of writing horror or fantasy, my characters kept falling in love. That book helped me accept it. I'am a romance author, and that's okay. Besides, I still incorporate fantasy or horror in my books. :D Thank you George and Stephen for doing this.

Golly gee, George. I have to say, good choice on the suspenders for the occasion! Skull and crossbones to talk to Stephen King. Good stuff! Love hearing you two talk, two great minds. Wish I could have made the drive up there to see it myself. Thanks for posting the video!

Thank you!
I will watch it as soon as my kids are asleep (so in like 11h ;) ). It makes me so happy to see my favorit writers together in a video that it makes me realize that I am an even bigger nerd than I thought ;)

It seems that the two of you are not only very talented writers... Both of you can make a story very interesting through talking about it as well.

I was curious on whether Stephen King has read your books. I'm glad I got the answer from the man himself! And by the way, his story Survivor Type haunted me when I was a child. I guess I started reading his books too early. :)

Fun Fact George
When Stephen King told you that he sold his story for 35 bucks, you made the sound "HAR!" like Tormund Giantsbane.

Incidentally, you too have a big beard. Although not as long as Tormund I imagine.

Are you secretly like Tormund?

Incredible interview, although hard to tell who was interviewing who. Love the insights into both your lives. Still won't read the King horror books (don't like to be scared), but have enjoyed some of his books. Still awaiting the last GOT. Sigh.
