    I'll put it in the Bred Any Good Books thread as that's where book recommendations by other writers go. Just don't believe everything you read in his books.

    I am taking it all with a pinch of salt, I like the photo's though. I'm not aware of the author, it was bought as a gift. I was just excited to get an "about" Stephen King book. I hope i haven't made a faux pas by posting

    Not to worry. Just don't want you to take it all as gospel as I know there were some inaccuracies. He never actually interviewed Stephen in spite of having written several books about him so most of the information he had was second-hand at best.

    I finished Joyland last night. (It's only 286 pages.)

    I'll give it a 7 on a scale of 1-10. It was good, but very little supernatural. If you liked the scenes with Jake and Sadie in 11/22/63 (and I did!), you'll enjoy this one. No spoilers.
