I was just reading an article from some nonsense publication about how King has some concerns over his legacy. Full disclosure: I am new to this forum and have no idea of the rules or culture here, but I have been moved to declare these sentiments anywhere they may be publicly read.

Stephen King, if you are reading, your legacy is secured. As a lifelong reader and fan, I feel more kinship with Joe Hill as a sibling as I do my actual siblings. You are a fine writer, an excellent storyteller, and a surrogate parent to me in a way I will ever be able to express. I have been a faithful reader since the early 80's when I was no more than wee. I know that I am not an anomaly and that this surely a widespread phenomenon. Elitist critics be damned, your writing and its impact on my entire generation is your legacy. Good job and thank you, sir.

If the claim in the article is true.

He has said enough times he does not give a crap as to how he's labelled as a writer. At least that's what I picked up from all of the forewards and afterwards he has provided us over the years. Maybe now that he's 'nearing the clearing' his thoughts have changed.
Welcome Will_H.
