In September of 2012, I had the honor and privilege of interviewing author Stephen Spignesi, who is known as “the world’s leading authority on Stephen King”, according to Entertainment Weekly magazine, and several other reputable publications. My interview covered Mr. Spignesi’s life growing up in Connecticut, his school years, becoming a college professor, his writing career, and his love for The Beatles, and of course, writer Stephen King. The interview was truly memorable for me, and a friendship was born.

One of my favorite things about books is that I enjoy biographies. I love learning about people, how it was in the beginning, how far they’ve come, and the rise to fame and all the struggles it took to get there. I’m one of those readers who likes to look “behind the curtain” and see what’s being hidden from us no matter how fascinating or scary it might be. Most of the time I’m reading “horror” books (Stephen King mostly), but on occasion I take a break for a biography that just might grab my interest long enough to give it my full attention.

There have been lots of books about the horror genre, the individuals who directed or wrote tales of horror that have scared us for decades. There are many names that come to mind, but if you want the best there is three that have completely changed the face of horror not just in film, but in books as well.

When it comes to Stephen King new releases, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, to King fans it feels like Christmas. A new King book release is an event in itself. At one point in his career, King released 2-4 books a year! He is much older now, he has slowed down, but not by much. It is rare for King to do a sequel to one of his books.

Most of you know me as the film critic who post’s thoughts and reviews of some of the best and worst in films. However, once in awhile I like to do a book review. A book I feel is not only really good or interesting, but worth your time. You don’t have to be a horror fan to enjoy this book, but it helps because either way… NOS4A2 is gonna scare your socks off! SO, here is my thought’s and review of the latest Joe Hill novel; NOS4A2.

Every artist that ever lived has a piece of their work that doesn’t just prove how talented they are, but in some cases stands the test of time. Some of those artists have one thing that is considered their “Masterpiece” or “Swan Song”. When it comes to the Master Storyteller, Stephen King, it’s quite debatable.
