Mr. King is by far my favorite. There is one other author that I will devour anything he writes as soon as it is published and that is Dan Simmons. I read a lot of Anne Rice and Dean Koontz years ago but found most of their stuff repetative after awhile and haven't read any of them lately. I'm tempted to start the Game of Thrones series (George Martin???) and would appreciate any feedback my fellow constant readers might have before starting that journey.
