Haven't seen the B&W version, so am waiting for that!)Brand spanking new and it was only $7.13 + shipping! A little over $10 for a bluray! There's still a couple of copies available in case anyone's interested!
    I have that and love the B&W version

    Well, I wasn't able to get a VIP ticket, but just got a great seat for Hartford appearance!

    I've been meeting with the lawyer for a while. He knows I'm a sK fan (in fact, he, his wife, and his office assistant saw Ghost Brothers of Darkland County because I told them about it!), and the other day he and I got into a conversation about sK novels which have a "religious" connection. So, I recommended Desperation, then offered to get him a copy.

    latest SK related? Dan Simmon's Flashback.
    They quoted stephen king, praising simmons: he wishes he could write like him. So it was an easy buy.

    Flashback was more a 3/5 kinda book, but It lead me to the Hyperion Cantos, a superb Sci-Fi tetralogie
    After the first book I had a better understanding what King meant.

    But I'm curious which book SK had in mind as he stated that, probably not flashback

    Every now and then I pop into my local charity shop looking for books - I find sk books and help a cancer charity, everyone wins - but last time in there, I looked at the dvds and found the green mile for 1.50 so bought it, it has been on loads over here recently, and I had never caught it from the beginning.

    A friend of mine, Jenny, painted this. She also did a E.A. Poe clock for me.



    I love you Jenny!

    I have it hung where I can see it from my office area at home. He judges me when I am not working on my writing, it helps. Jenny actually showed that painting in her Seattle show and it was a hit. She got a schit-ton of offers on it but she gave it to me because she wanted it to have a home where it would be loved. She's done all sorts of paintings of authors and other artists. This was her first Stephen King, she says he's got a beautiful and interesting face. I agree.

    I think so, too. But I avoid going around saying it. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Very nice Patricia!

    I didn't buy anything King related but I am painting a picture of the Dark Tower and the field of roses on the wall in my laundry room. Husband thinks I've gone off my rocker. I don't know why he cares, he never goes in there so it shouldn't matter to him.
