Stephen King – not your average horror writer!

October 3, 2007 at 9:25 pm (Books and Authors) (, )

It always makes me laugh to think that Stephen King is pegged as a “horror writer”, because to me he’s one of the great cross-genre authors! Yes, many of his books have an element of horror to them, but so do millions of other books that are NOT pegged as “horror” (take a look at anything about WWII and when you get to some of the atrocities committed by the Nazis – well, that’s pure horror to me!). I find him a very versatile writer – he seems to be able to turn his hand to pretty much anything. Overall, I think he’s mostly a writer who looks at the human condition and studies society as a whole – and he’s a very interesting man to boot!

Take a look at this nice little interview:
