I have always been a firm believer in the “independent” artist. Those who struggle to get their work out there in the world to be seen or read. Those who stay up late at night, losing sleep, sacrificing, pouring their heart and soul into their work, slamming the keyboards as fast and hard as they can till they almost bleed, and to the ones who have a dream … a dream to get that one film or one story out there that would change their lives forever.

There are certain times in the year we get excited, certain “events”. The holidays, 1st Day of Summer, latest big blockbuster at your local movie theater. However, for King fans, none of these come close to the release of a new Stephen King book.

First off, I never even knew this book existed until a friend of mine had an extra copy and was willing to make a trade. It was certainly worth it and I thank him for that. The book is a collection of Hans exclusive interviews with everyone from filmmakers such as, Frank Darabont, Mick Garris, and “Dollar Baby” filmmakers to writers such as, Peter Straub, Stephen Spignesi, Bev Vincent, and Robin Furth. And of course, he has interviewed the man himself, Stephen King.

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.

When we think of Stephen King we immediately think of “horror”. Dubbed the “Master of Horror”, King has scared us by taking the most innocent things like dogs, cars, clowns, kids, and many other things and turning them into nightmares. However, there is another side to King. He can write and tell the most amazing stories that have nothing really to do with horror such as; The Shawshank Redemption, Stand By Me (The Body), and The Green Mile. All three known as some of his best work. Well, you can now add another wonderful tale to that list: Joyland.

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.

Some Guy Who Kills People, part slasher – part comedy – wholly brilliant, is set to become the cult movie event of the year. Blackly comic, genuinely scary and heart-warming all at the same time, it stars a stellar cast including Kevin Corrigan (Pineapple Express, Fringe, Superbad), Lucy Davis (The Office, Shaun Of The Dead), Karen Black (House of 1000 Corpses) and Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show) and hits cinemas on 5 October 2012 and DVD, Blu-ray, Download and On Demand on 8 October 2012.
