The Horror Honeys: Friday Favorites: The Writing of Stephen King

Friday Favorites: The Writing of Stephen King


What would a tribute week to Stephen King be without a nod to his novels? The fact of the matter is, no matter how much we may love the films based on his writings, they wouldn't exist were it not for the brilliant works of fiction on which they are based. King has supplied generations of readers with enough nightmare fuel to last two lifetimes, and we will never be anything but grateful for that. From clowns that eat children to cemeteries that bring the dead back to life to coming of age stories about four friends searching for a dead body, Stephen King knows how to craft the kind of page-turner that lingers with you long after you put the book back on the shelf. It's for these reasons that for our King Tribute Week Friday Favorites, the Horror Honeys decided to share with you our favorite Stephen King novels. Some are epic, some are spooky, and some are down-right terrifying, but they all hold a special place in their respective Horror Honey's heart!
