    Does it make me a "super freak" if I read one (or more) of his books more than once?? (I'm okay with that)

    Stephen King doesn't write horror. He writes about the ordinary relationships that people have with each other in the midst of extraordinary events...

    That said I run into things like this all the time...

    Hello. I'm new here. Since this is the oldest thread I could find pertaining to introductions, I decided to start here. Nice to meet you, hope you feel the same. As for the "freak" thread? No, I don't think Stephen King is anything near that ballpark. He is a great writer, however, and I've come here to visit this place and find out more about him. Also, I'm no good at using these parenthetical writing tools on these sites, so if this comes out screwed up, you can certainly blame me. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday guys

    Ha ha I love this thread!

    My commute to and from work each day is about 3 hours, so I read on the train to keep myself occupied. I'm always amazed at the random people who comment on me reading a Stephen King book - I never hear anyone commenting on other people's non-SK books! One guy said what was a young girl like me doing reading Stephen King (I'm 31!), and another was intent on telling me how bloodthirsty SK was!

    I tell you what, there are plenty of nutters about, and I seem to meet them all on the train or at the train station

    Well, if being a fan of SK stories makes you a freak, then I'm a freak and I don't mind admitting to it!!!

    when i was younger and a nanny in england my bosses friends were actually worried about their kids being near me as i read SK and watched horror movies and god forbid ...i went to rock concerts!!!
    so obviously after sacrificing the youngest to beezlebub and dancin naked in the moonlight out in the back yard whilst listening to music played backwards they were convinced there was nothing wrong with me lol
    (kidding on the last bit - only danced like that when drunk but whole different post!!)
