    I can't believe no one has mentioned a couple of my favorites:

    1. The Shining
    2. The Stand
    3. Christine
    4. Pet Sematary
    5. The Dead Zone
    6. Firestarter

    I could go on and on. I liked IT a ton, but I thought the ending was a letdown. I also loved The Tommyknockers.

    Last year I read Black House. For those of you that liked The Talisman, you'll love it; it's the same character twenty years later.

    I haven't enjoyed the stories he's written recently as some of his older works, but I always love the way he tells a story.

    The Stand is my favourite of all his books. The first one I ever read was Salem's Lot when I was in high school.... I stayed up all nite reading it and couldn't go to school the next day.

    Every year for my b'day someone will buy me his latest book. I always wait for just the right time to start it. When everyone is busy and I can curl up in my corner with a cup of tea and read for hours.

    His newest book in the Gunslinger series is out now and I can't wait to read that one.

    The Gunslinger

    Hard to believe he wrote that when he was 21.

    I think my favorite SK work is Green Mile. After that Shawshank Redemption. When I was a teen My dad bought me a collection called The Bachman Books that had The Long Walk in it. I really liked that one. I have nightmares that I am the guy in Thinner and I waste away to nothing. Ick!

    Fans of the author may be interested to hear that Mr. King will be receiving the 2003 National Book Foundation's Medal For Distinguished Contribution of American Letters, this Wednesday.

    Different Seasons, definitely. All four stories. I read it to rags. (And I'm still disappointed Apt Pupil was such a horrible movie.)
    I think I liked the Shining - I don't really remember, I was in junior high when I read it and it scared me so bad I had to hide it on my shelf out of sight when I went to bed!
