My love affair with Stephen King started on my 11th birthday when I received a copy of The Dead Zone. Up until then I’d just read children's books, so this was both a revelation and an education. There were no happy endings in this story, that was for sure. By the time I finished it, I was hooked and quickly looked for more of his books. Even now, more than three decades later, I’m still first in the queue whenever something new is released. I won’t claim to have read everything that King has written – because of the amount of words he churns out every year, I doubt many people have. I have read most of his work, though. What gets me most is the sheer diversity. Whatever the story is, whether it’s a horror tale about a clown in the sewer system, or a crazed fan with some interesting motivational techniques, or a short novella about a prison break, he grabs hold of you from the first word and doesn’t let go until the final full stop. Quite simply, the guy is a genius. There are a lot of great storyteller out there, but there will only ever be one King.
