He seems like a pretty neat person (what we learn about him in the rare interview)

King is currently over here (England) flogging his latest book. He was on BBC4 last night for an hour-long interview with Mark Lawson and the other week he was on ‘Desert Island Discs’ Maybe that’s why he doesn’t give out many interviews in the US, he’s too busy over here 😉

I am a huge King fan and, as such, am chagrined to admit I don’t even know what the name of his new book is. I think his trademark ‘start slow, build background and character, then release the monsters’ isn’t cutting it for today’s readers. (It isn’t for me, obviously.) You may find him on the interview circuit when he gets back to the US; obviously his sales are slumping or his publisher wouldn’t have him out flogging his books.
