Stephen King to retire

It seems Stephen King is ready to retire. I
think he’s probably the most successful
horror-fantasy authour out there. I wonder if
anyone’s going to try and fill into the market
void he’ll leave behind. The details are here.

    So long as he doesn’t leave me hanging on the Dark Tower series, I wish him well.
    If he doesn’t finish it…well, he wrote Misery

      The article says he’ll write one novel about a Buick, one collection of short stories, and the last three Dark Tower novels next year before retiring.

        i’d drive up to new england and sit on him myself if i had to.

        i must say, he’s tying up his career nicely with the dark tower books. i hope he finds some way to continue to contribute in his retirement. but even if not, we got plenty of his books at home i haven’t read yet.

      I generally make it a rule not to start reading a series until the series is finished. I am too impatient to wait for the rest of the books. I made this mistake recently with the Harry Potter books. My excuse is that I had to read the book before I saw the movie.

        Hey, it’s as good an excuse as any.

        At least the first book Harry Potter book can, more-or-less, stand on its own. Everything after that, though, it becomes obvious that J.K. Rowling is working on a mytharc of some sort, and that as we go on, You-Know-Who will likely become more and more prominent.
