The Contrary Canadian | My thoughts on Stephen King as a writer | Scoop.it

"All week, I participated in a discussion about Stephen King. And I cannot believe the number of people who were bashing the guy. He has written 50 books–EVERY ONE OF THEM A BESTSELLER. Best guestimates are he brings in at least 40 million a year. And when he can write a book like 11/22/63 that can move me to melancholy for the better part of a day AND a week later still has me thinking about it, then I say the whole lot are out to lunch, jealous, little people of no concern. This man is a great story teller. He HAS to be, to accomplish what he has done."
