Yes, Thanks for the reply. What I do know is that the Gormenghast novels are some of the most important (and little known?) examples of the genre...sort of like H.P. Lovecraft thirty years later.
I greatly appreciate the reply.
P.S. I haven't read any Stephen King novels for awhile and am now immersed in the Dark Tower novels, while "It" awaits. I had forgotten that Mr. King's writing isn't only excellent from a technical point of view but he also weaves in historical events and social causes (such as racism) into the narrative which, for me at least, makes them all the more enjoyable.
