Re: The Book thread.
On King, The Stand, Pet Cemetary, Salem's Lot, Carrie, The Shining, Dead Zone, Cujo and the first three Dark Tower novels are all outstanding. Also enjoy his short stories immensely. Cycle of the Werewolf and Eyes of the Dragon are both excellent and rarely come up in King discussion.
I enjoy most of his stuff on some level, but he certainly seems to have had a peak where he was producing his best work (at least in the horror genre) and it was very early in his career. It's pretty much been downhill since. Heartwarming tales with elements of the supernatural just don't cut it for me, I miss being frightened by King.
I love professional-wrestling.
