    Hey everyone, just registered here to engage in conversations about the works of my favorite author. I'm 31 years old, living in Tampa Florida currently.

    I've been a "Constant Reader" since I was about 10 years old, and my mother gave me the paperback edition of Firestarter during a road trip from Pennsylvania to Georgia (presumably to keep me quite) and I fell in love with it. I may be the only fourth grader in history to have ever written a book report on it for school. Afterwards I began reading anything I could find by him.

    My favorite King Novel is "Pet Semetary" simply because, as a child growing up in the late 80's and early 90's, I was exposed to horror almost since birth, and in my entire childhood nothing ever actually scared me except that book.

    I just happened to stumble upon this site while google searching reviews for "Mr. Mercedes" and after reading threw a few threads figured this would be a cool place to stop by from time time and chat, so hopefully I'll be talking to all of you soon.

    I was wondering if anybody would catch that, so few people have actually seen it.

    Yep doowopgirl, another of my favorite writers for sure. The character in the Carpenter movie was so obviously based on him. When it came out I remember reading a few reviews that believed it was based on King, being that Kane is suppose to be the worlds most popular horror writer, but when you get to the town and see his world it's clearly Lovecraft that was the inspiration.

    The movie I got the name from, by the way, was John Carpenters "In the Mouth of Madness" for anybody wondering. Underrated movie

    Nie to Meet you Rosie, I'm sure will cross Paths;-D

    Welcome to the SKMB! I am currently vacationing in Florida AND reading Firestarter - funny ka-incidence. I think your mom was brilliant for turning you on to King when you were 10. The kids are complaining about the dismal internet service at our condo, and if I could part with it, I'd give one of my kids Firestarter to read right now.
