    Just finished The Dead Zone last week, Very sad and clever. Not my favourite SK but I did enjoy it :)

    They are all good and you'll get subjective lists from your question. It'll be up to you to choose. I suggest starting at the earliest and chronologically moving your way up the ladder. Maybe one of his short story volumes to whet your appetite and give you more decision making grist for the mill. There is a good short story called 'Children of the Corn' which, if memory serves, has your namesake as a main character. Enjoy! mal.

    The Dead Zone is one of my favorites. I'm a much bigger King fan of his earlier work. This story imo, was also one of the few King books that transfered well to the big screen.

    Agreed. Made for a great adaptation. Rob Reiner, Frank Darabont, and Cronenberg are the guys that got it right.

    Personally, I think anyone that likes the Dead Zone would also like Firestarter.

    ....with the exception of George C. Scott as Rainbird.....he's a great actor-but not one that automatically conjures up the tag Native American.....

    Really? Definitely early era King. Idk, maybe I should give Firestarter another go. Haven't read it since it came out! Have seen the movie a couple times. Wasn't impressed.

    I just re-read it a few months ago (?) and really enjoyed it, more than i did the first go-round. Don't get me wrong, the Dead Zone is a superior novel, but i do think if you like the story, then Firestarter is a pretty good companion piece.

    I haven't seen the movie in a long, long time. He's such a creepy character in the book. I'd love to see Firestarter get a quality remake.
