I need help finding a title...

Discussion in 'General Discussion & Questions' started by Amélie Lacroix, Aug 11, 2017.

  1. Hi there, I'm relatively new to the Stephen King universe. I started off reading IT, then proceeded to The Gunslinger, and I'm now onto The Stand.

    However.... I remember as a child having a Stephen King book on my book shelf, which I was never allowed to read; from what I remember, it was blue, relatively chunky, and had a gargoyle/statue on a rooftop on the cover. I cannot remember what it was titled, nor can I ask my mother. (It was not "Nightmares in the Sky: Gargoyles and Grotesques") So my question is - does anyone know of what it could possibly be called.

    ....Welcome!....wish I could be of some help....I have a wide collection of his books-but nothing with that cover-I've reviewed a number of other covers online with no success, it may be foreign issued as well-hundreds of covers have been released and re-released over the years.....hopefully another member here can strike gold for you.....

  6. Welcome to the board :)

    I couldnt find a book cover with a gargoyle on a roof either :( The only thing I was able to find with a gargoyle on a roof is the DVD of Rose Red.

    Could you possibly be thinking of Robert McCammon's Blue World?

  14. Thank you all for your replies! I remember it so vividly being Stephen King, as when I attempted to take it to school to read, it was confiscated. I was then made to write lines stating I wouldn't bring another of his books to school at my age :0:. I really don't remember anything about it other than it being quite a large book, with 'something' (I'm pretty sure it was a gargoyle of somekind) perched overlooking a city/town (almost like someone was looking over its shoulder). I'm sure I'll find it eventually, and there have been some great tips here, which I will look into now. :)

    Nope, she said it wasn't that title up above. Good try though.

    Probably not. That's a tombstone, not a rooftop. And that is btw, one UGLY gargoyle! And sorry. 'Nightmares in the Sky' was right there in the original post! osnafrank & I apparently have the word comprehension skills of dolphins. I'm blaming lead paint. That and vodka.

    LMAO at you two! :laugh: it still could have been it, stranger things have happened!


    I'm with doowopgirl , I thought of Rose Red as in Red and its not even blue, but I think it must be the Rose Red dvd.

    I blame all of my brain farts on building model cars with the original Testor's glue when I was a kid. Man, I could keep myself quietly entertained for hours working on those things......:rolleyes::icon_eek:
     
  20. I've gone through so many covers, and I feel like it's driving me insane :hammer:, but I will not stop until I find it! I just want to thank you all again for your tips, your help, and your kindness to a newbie here! :blush:
