    Note: this is NOT an official suggestion thread! Posting a response here does not oblige SK to owe you anything!

    I thought it might be fun to see what kind of genres, books or stories you wish Stephen King would give his original take on. Now, this could be tricky because SK has already written so much, odds are he's already done something close to it! But that will be part of the fun.

    Personally I'd love to read Stephen King's take on the story of Frankenstein, or any man-created being like the Golem (not be confused with Gollum from Lord of the Rings).

    About monsters...somewhat like the True Knot in Doctor Sleep...
    monsters that are among us, as the True Knot is/was among us, but monsters that pass for everyday people, you know...like...Congress...the kind of monster that has a taste for human endeavor, with a twist...and there's room for some comedic effect here, too...you got your monster who enjoys making things foul, wrong, gets his kicks his chucks from spoiling outcomes...thinking of this quote from Pessoa his Book of Disquiet...'a reformer is a man who sees the world's superficial ills and sets out to sure them by aggravating the more basic ills.' Maybe have two or more camps of monsters, somewhat united, but still at odds about how to make things wrong. I'm considering the True Knot...they are not like...Pennywise...or the Tommyknockers...or Mr. Grey...they are kinda like Ardelia in The Library Policeman...passing for human, but not...too...I guess somewhat like in Desperation...but that was more of a possession.

    Seriously now, I would love to read about when Roland meets up again with Rhea of the Coos (that b*tch!).

    Anything his heart desires, or his muse reveals to him. He's been doing great so far.

    About the ghost of Alex Campbell, a member of an Irish labor organization called the Molly Maguires, executed in 1877, taking revenge in modern day on the descendants of the mining company... me being one as some of my ancestors were “police” for the company. I still get the heebie jeebies whenever I drive past the old courthouse where they were hanged.

    One of my favorite short stories by King is "A Good Marriage;" I really liked that it was all about a real-life scary situation, so I think I would like to read more stories like that.

    I like the end of civilization type theme but I really do not care. He could write about doorknobs and make it entertaining and wonderful.

    Yes, I agree; I would love to read his take on the Frankestein's monster mythos. Frankenstein is one of my favorite novels and movies.

    For books he never intends to write sequels for...a compilation book of all our favorite characters, what they've been up to all this time. I'm not done with Stuttering Bill, Dale Barbara, and Jake Epping.

    I'd love to see another book about "Travelin" Jack Sawyer and Parkus.

    The Nameless M-O-O-N - That spells Nameless

    He kind of touched on it in joyland. :)

    Who didn't have a time-stop fantasy as a kid? Sk could do a great one of those, either it (whatever is used to stop time) ends up in the wrong hands or it can't be restarted, and the story would be of 1 person's slow decline into insanity due to a life of solitude.

    I like what he have written so far. I don't come up with anything, so he can continue with what he do. All his stories are great.
     
  20. He should write Ms. Mod's biography.
