Hello, newbie here, LONG time reader and background actor on Castle Rock. I understand he rarely reads reader mail any more and doesn't have a direct email, but I've seen others inquiring and the mods privately providing them with contact info. I would appreciate that same if still possible. Thanks in advance!

David, I just joined myself and had exactly the same question. When I came to forum, in fact, the very first thing I saw was your post. Strange coincidences! Almost certainly we will meet around page 200 and together we will fight off the Nazi werewolves. I cannot friggin' wait.

Ms. Mod, if it would be okay I would love to get the same mailing information.

Actually maybe I can ask a piece of advice, too? I work in my day job as a journalist for a Catholic magazine. (I'm a Catholic priest myself.) I got back into Stephen's work about three years ago, and spent a year reading everything connected in any way to the Dark Tower, in order.

It really helped me through a very hard year in my own life. And it surprised me. I had forgotten just how often he refers to Catholic stuff, and with what depth. Callahan is for me one of the best written priests, period. He challenged the way I think about being a priest, and also encouraged me to trust in my own crazy peripatetic ways.

I've wondered whether Stephen would ever do an interview about religion and horror. I've tried his publishers a couple times, but I never get any responses to calls or emails. The magazine I work for is actually pretty prominent; we're the largest Catholic magazine in the US, in fact. But I get it, we're no Time or New Yorker.

I want to write to thank him for his work, but if there's a publicist I could contact to see if he'd ever do an interview with a priest writer guy, that would be great too.

I'm about to post this and suddenly realizing a million people probably come to this forum asking different versions of this same thing over and over. Ugh. What am I thinking.... smh Sorry about that.

If you wouldn't mind PMing that mailing address, I'd be grateful. And thanks for administrating this forum.

Welcome to the Board!

I'll send you a PM with the office address but can tell you that Stephen isn't adding any interview requests to his calendar at the moment as he has several projects that are demanding his attention.
