1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST
    Reopening Sunday November 29 at 12:01 AM EST

    Hello all I"m Fred. Long time Stephen King reader (Constant Reader and proud of it!) and budding writer. The reading bug bit me at age 13 and I was an avid reader of Science Fiction mostly until several friends insisted I try SK. Even though I had no real interest in the "Horror" genre, theirs were opinions I valued. I picked up Night Shift figuring I'd try him out in small doses. I was surprised because some of those stories seemed more like SF to me than Horror. Been hooked ever since.

    About a decade ago I began writing in earnest and I think the reading bug that bit me at age 13 deserted me for another impressionable young 13 yr old! These days I rarely read anything other than my own work. And the occasional SK novel...

    I found Everything's Eventual that had been lost during a couple of moves and realized I had not read it even though I bought it when it was new on the bookstore shelf.
