Does Stephen King really hate the word "but" (for example "I like Dean Koontz, but...) Just a little reference he made in Needful Things when Mr. Gaunt was talking to Brian in a dream and then he also mentioned it to Nettie.

On a side note, I really loved the book. People were so crazy, it was sort of comical at times and scary.

I wouldn't say that was Mr. King in particular. Mr. Gaunt's character was the one who hated that word, to my recollection. But I'm with Blunt on this one. You kinda lost me there too.

Yes, Mr. Gaunt said it, but I just wondered if King had the same feelings about the word "but" as Mr. Gaunt. Since he put in the book and mentioned twice. Wasn't sure. Ha! Oops! The Dean Koontz reference was just me being a little silly! Staring at the screen too long and thinking I am funny. hee-hee!
That's okay. Sometimes I think I'm funny too. I'm a Koontz fan myself. Didn't bother me a bit!
