I am not so young, Russian, working in France (in math and IT). More than Internet, reading is a second life to my generation. I like King but even more I am interested in his worldview. (Some other favorite writers - Gene Wolfe, Tolkien, not all but certain things by Iain Banks and at the other end by Nabokov...) There is a lot to discuss about King, but I have actually a very concrete question: what countries are mentioned in King's novels? At all? E.g., take "The Stand": what happened with Captain Trips abroad? In other countries? In China? In Australia? What countries appear even implicitly? In other novels, e.g., in the "Dark Tower" Mejis may have something to do with Mexico. Superflu there hits a parallel world... My real name is Sergei.
