Local literary works can be a surprising source of home state pride, no matter where you’re from. Here’s a compiled list of the generally-regarded most famous book set in each state (or commonwealth). Many of these works have translated into cinema. How many have you read?     * * * *...

  Joyland  (Hard Case Crime) seems at first a change-up by genre master Stephen King. It has many qualities found in his other books, but violates fan expectations in ways that are very pleasant and surprising. Joyland  is not really a genre novel at times, but a slice-of-life novel...

When I first started writing, I aimed to be a “serious young writer,” which is why after working as a stock clerk at a Hollywood camera store and then as a tile salesman in the San Fernando Valley, I joined an MFA writing program at USC. I adored my time at the university and made good friends...

What struck me as I read Under the Dome is that the book is Lord of the Flies under glass. The fact that the main characters are adults does not detract from that comparison as the people of Chester's Mills are cut off from the rest of the world and left to their own devices.

I have not read "Under The Dome", so I came to the television adaptation a virgin. I looked forward to it, as the premise and the come-ons took my interest. I enjoyed the first episode. The visual imposition of the 'dome' was very well done (fresh steak, anyone). Character reactions were realistic...

This is an odd little story of fame and history and lost and found and auction on eBay. With a publisher putting in their odd more than two cents worth. Somebody write a book ... or a song. [DE] * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * How Rick Springfield Lost & Found His Signed Stephen King Book ...
