I have to admit that when it comes to Stephen King’s stories, I’m a wimp. I’ve never read one and only watch the movies a bit at a time through parted fingers. I think I remember seeing the end of one of his movies when I was little where a hand comes up out of the grave or out of water – something like that. I had nightmares for a week!
BUT, my name is firmly on the request list for King’s latest which comes out in November 2009. (At present on 9/03/09, there are 52 copies on order in the Harris County Public Library system, and only 12 people on the request list.) It’s called Under the Dome and is about a town in Maine that is suddenly cut off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field.
Let the nightmares come!
