    Mine was Rage, when I was about 12 years old. I think that was in the days before parent's micro-managed everything their kids read/watched etc. Not saying parental guidance is a bad thing, just saying, I don't think my mom knew what the hell I was reading! Can certainly understand why SK took the book out of publication though. :(

    My first King also. I've read both the original and the later supersized versions a couple of times each!

    My first book was either the Shining or Salem's Lot. But I remember them both like it was yesterday!!! My brother took our two story ladder and scratched at my window just like in Salems Lot. We still talk about how scared how I was by that book today!!!! Even SK mentions that we were a lot longer back then and easier to scare! Just plain awesome! followed by Cujo, Firestarter, the STand.............

    and then to be honored with best top ten novels with 11/22/63!!!

    The Shining, although The Mist, in Dark Forces, got me started.

    My first Ste King Book was The Stand. I saw the mini series on TV and was hooked from that moment onwards. I then begged and pleaded with the goth chick in the library to let me have a few books from the Horror section before my time (I was too young to get anything from the horror section on my card).

    Luckily she said yes and I fell in love with the book - head over heels. My gran bought me a paperback copy which is now faded and falling to pieces so I replaced it with a hardback copy I found for 50p at a carboot sale.................. its just genius .....
    I want a first edition copy however the one I ordered off amazon turned up with no cover .... booooo lol

    Carrie, upon its initial paperback release. And it's been a looooong, strange & fascinating roller-coaster ride ever since!

    Carrie I was in Junior High. Read it on a weekend, couldn't put it down. A friend lent it to me, when I took it back on Monday they were like you read all of it?!
