    My God they placed him eighth, and Faulkner fifteenth. An injustice, a travesty.

    Oh no! Is this a bad thing?
    This travesty thing - is it like "Don't sully my thread?"

    It's a travesty they ranked him eighth.

    Oh okay - misunderstanding on my part - I once asked a French guy what a travesty was and he told me "It is a man who dresses up in women's clothing". (true story)

    Maybe it is going by a voting system then?

    A travesty is the Chicago Cubs losing the 1969 pennant to the Mets.

    Justin Beiber is a travesty (not a transvestite) - (I mean his behaviour is a travesty).

    I knew it... I knew it ... Ever since I first read Salem`s Lot and Carrie back in the 70's. I KNEW he would make a top list of writers from the US in our Lifetime! He is alive in OUR times! It is freaking awesome... And to think he has encouraged so many people to write.. Joe Hill, Owen King, and of course Tabitha King...

    King is now at sixth place! Did you know you can get in there and vote them up or down by ranking? You don't have to register or anything, it's an open voting system, so fellow SKMB members get going!!!
