Stephen King + The Walking Dead = Awesome

The-Walking-Dead-Season-2

Stories for the second season of THE WALKING DEAD are busy being penned and tonight comes the news that none other than Stephen King may be writing himself an episode. Now that’s what I call good news. No big secret that I’m a huge King fan and I’m thinking an SK penned hour is just what the series needs. Mind you, none of this is officially official. Word came out at a recent panel discussion … Continue reading

Book Review: The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror – Edited by Stephen Jones

The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror 21

This tome features horror luminaries such as Stephen King (and son), Ramsey Campbell and Brian Lumley. A fairly safe bet then, for some classic tales to darken the corners of the room. The introduction is worth a mention, as it appears to catalogue every single horror story penned in 2009. How anyone goes about compiling such encyclopaedic reference material is a mystery worthy of Dupin. But it’s an excellent way to discover new authors, so … Continue reading

kingstandlist

It was only a few days ago that I told you about Warner Bros. and CBS’s plan to bring THE STAND to the big screen.  The mini-series holds a special place for this horror fan (and many others I would presume) but I would be lying to you if I didn’t admit that I would love to see a big budget, no holds barred version. Stephen King has heard about this big screen version and … Continue reading

Book Review: Eleven Twenty-Three – Author Jason Hornsby

Eleven-Twenty-Three

“Lily’s End, which before this morning had not seen a murder in two years, suddenly embodies the tyranny of third world countries. A post-war wasteland. A curfew at sundown. The silent hillside following a suicidal battle where the victors lie in fly-covered heaps not far from the carcasses of the armies they’ve defeated. Less than an hour ago, it was simply a dull beach-town, a Norman Rockwell painting. It was a nice place to live. … Continue reading
