My favourite living author.
Best: The Talisman
. It just seems so much better than the others. Straub's influence? Hard to say, as Black House
wasn't nearly as good.
. As I was reading it I was disappointed that he seemed to be writing it with adapting it to the screen on his mind. It read like a movie. Then of course the movie was announced almost right away. Felt like selling out.
I'm almost half-way through Duma Key
at the moment. Not yet seeing the power that you all are describing but hopefully will see it soon.
