Roadwork – Stephen King (as Richard Bachman)

  It’s been said that Stephen King can draw inspiration from nearly any topic. After reading this book, I’d say that statement certainly has some credibility. In the most basic of summaries, Roadwork is a novel about the horrors of imminent domain. Of course, in reality, there’s much more to it than that. Like several of the King books I’ve...

Firestarter – Stephen King

Halloween is almost upon us. What better time is there to curl up with another one of Stephen King’s classic novels? Yes, I know I haven’t really been restricting my King consumption just to the month of October. In fact, I read his books throughout most of the last year. But, can you blame me? Once you dive in, they...

The Dead Zone – Stephen King

  I feel sort of bad for pushing all my other books aside to go on a Stephen King binge. But honestly, I can’t say I really regret it. His novels are nothing short of addicting. Today, I’m going to focus on the fan-favorite The Dead Zone. As a teenager, I read a number of King’s earliest works. But this...

The Stand – Stephen King

I know I typically save my Stephen King book reviews for the month of October. But last month, like so many other people, I found myself diagnosed with Covid-19. Thankfully, it was only the mild Omicron variant, so I recovered rather quickly. But still, it got me thinking about just how quickly Covid spread across the globe. It started out...

Night Shift – Stephen King

It has become a tradition of mine to read and review a Stephen King novel each year for Halloween. I started this tradition by reading King’s first novel, Carrie. From there, I progressed through each of his books chronologically by date of publication. The last review was for Rage, a novel written under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman. At this...

Rage – Stephen King (as Richard Bachman)

It’s October! That means it’s time for my annual Stephen King book review. In keeping with my tradition of reviewing King’s books in chronological order, I find myself at an interesting point. So far, I’ve reviewed Carrie, ‘Salem’s Lot, and The Shining – the first three books authored by Stephen King. The next book released under the ‘Stephen King’ name...

The Shining – Stephen King

Continuing with my tradition of reviewing a Stephen King novel in time for Halloween, this year I set aside some time to revisit a real classic, The Shining. This was King’s third full-length novel, and by the time this book was published it seems he had fully embraced the label of “horror author”. In case you’ve never actually read the...

Carrie – Stephen King

Before moving on other things, I wanted to take a moment to post another book review. Having finished up Parasite Eve a few days before Halloween, I found myself wanting something else to read that was still in the spirit of the season. This time of year, I usually find myself curling up on the couch with my favorite novel...
