About Stephen King

If asked to compile a list of my favorite stories of all time, I would probably fill half of it with novels and short stories by Stephen King.

To dub King a horror writer, which is always popular, is to do his stories an injustice. I love horror stories, but there is so much more going on here. To my mind, above all, King writes about people. Real people; not the shimmering, handsome role models of a Koontz novel, nor the hastily sketched caricatures of a Barker book. People who breathe, think and feel.

What better way to get to know these people but to put them in an extreme situation, be it supernatural, horrifying, awe-inspiring or all of these? Not throw them into it while remaining on the outside, regarding them from a cool distance, but follow them all the way through the dark and, maybe, back into the light again. Describe the events in words that create vivid images and clear sounds, that ceases to be mere words, actually. Describe it so that if something unbelievable should happen, you have no choice but to believe it.

That's what King does.

But hey, I sound as if he is just a different sort of psychologist. Let's not forget, he's also damn entertaining.

King Books
Here are the novels, except for the Bachman books and the Dark Tower books, which have their very own sections. You'll also find some non-fiction work and a comic book!
King Collections
Along with novels and non-fiction, King has also written numerous short stories and novellas, most of which can be found in the various collections that have been published through the years.
Dark Tower Books
The Dark Tower is a series of books inspired by Robert Browning's poem "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came". Part fantasy, part western, part something entirely its own genre, it has become King's most important work in many ways.
Bachman Books
As early as 1977, King began publishing novels under the pseudonym Richard Bachman, both as a way to get out stories that the publishers didn't think was Kingesque enough to publish and to find out if he could "do it again".
