People that know me & know my obsession with King ask me who my second favorite author is. I never really had one until I discovered Jonathan Maberry. I read his "Patient Zero" first & was hooked. His Joe Ledger series is great, especially the audio books read by Ray Porter. (six books so far) His Rot & Ruin series is YA, but is very fun to read. His other series is the "Pine Deep" series. I am half done with the first book, and I like it thus far. Just thought I'd pass this along if you are looking for some non-King reads.
