Here it is - the completed Halloween Story. Thanks to all who participated and to Cola and James for keeping track of it along the way!
Stephen is working with Marvel to produce a series of comic books inspired by and adapted from his Dark Tower novels. The first six issues will appear monthly starting in April 2006 and then will be collected in a hardcover volume published by Marvel in time for the 2006 holidays. The comics will integrate scenes from the novels with new material, creating a linear history of Roland Deschain as a young man.

Do you remember the Weekly Reader of your childhood? Well, it's still around—and is currently featuring Stephen King in several of its print and online publications. In October, kids throughout the country submitted questions to King. Take a look at his answers. King has also composed the beginning of a spooky serial story for children at The Weekly Writer. Last, but not least, middle and high school magazines Writing and READ will be blogging about their visit to the haunts that have inspired King in his hometown, Bangor, Maine. Look for new blog entries on Stephen King all throughout the week leading up to Halloween.

“The review of The Colorado Kid in today’s issue of USA Today mentions that there was no Starbucks in Denver in 1980. Don’t assume that’s a mistake on my part. The constant readers of the Dark Tower series may realize that that is not necessarily a continuity error, but a clue.”
Posters to the Message Board recently collaborated on a story as a “gift” to Stephen for his birthday. We had promised to post the completed story and thanks to poster FlakeNoir, who suggested the idea and also did the illustrations, here it is! Thanks to everyone who participated!
