Dear Mr. King,

I'll start by saying I know this is a message board, but I am hoping you will see this message. We are homeschooling due to the coronavirus and we are barely leaving the house so no trip to the post office for us.

My name is Aidan and I am a 5th grade student in New Jersey. My mom created this account so I could try to contact you. We are currently reading Dear Mr. Henshaw and our teacher has asked us to write to an author. (Fun fact: My teacher once wrote to you and read us your response.) To be honest I haven't read any of your books yet, but I have seen a few movies based on your books. I know I am not old enough but my mom is a huge horror fan so she lets me watch with her sometimes. IT is my favorite. I love Pennywise, even though my younger brother is afraid of him. Until now I haven't been much of a reader, but I would like to read one of your books. I'm think of starting with Eyes of the Dragon . Which one would you recommend for a boy my age?

I am also wondering how you are doing during this stressful time? This situation is really scary, probably more scary than your movies because this is real. I hope the doctors and scientists can help us get through this soon. Do you think you'll write a book about this pandemic?

Since this is public I can't give out any personal details, but it would be really cool if you wrote back. You can get my mom's email address from the account.

Sincerely,
Aidan J.

Welcome to the Board, Aidan!

Stephen does not respond personally to mail either here or sent to his office so I'm sorry to say you won't be getting an answer straight from him. The Eyes of the Dragon would be a good choice depending on your reading level. Another might be The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. Your mom would be the best person to decide if you're old enough to handle either one of those as she knows you best.

He is doing okay and busy writing which helps to take his mind off current events at least for a little while each day. He's already written one book about a pandemic (titled The Stand) so chances are he won't write another one with that as the main topic. It's possible he would include references to COVID in future books, though.

Здравствуйте, дорогой Стивен Кинг! Меня зовут Ольга, я живу в России и уже долгое время являюсь поклонницей Ваших произведений! Особенно мне нравятся: "Противостояние", "Жребий салема", "Безнадега", "Герман Вук ещё жив", "Тёмная башня" "Под куполом". Сейчас я читаю "Громила". Мне 47 лет, сейчас я не работаю, сижу дома с моей маленькой доченькой и Ваши произведения для меня это наблюдение за жизнью многих Ваших персонажей, созерцание природных красот Америки и наслаждение Вашим слогом. Хочу выразить Вам свою благодарность за наслаждение читать Ваши книги и пожелать Вам творческих успехов!


Огромное спасибо.
