Stephen King: I’m a much better writer than I am a talker” - man I could listen to him talk all day and night (especially at night :-) )

I believe Kubrick was telling the secret story of filming the moon landing and blending it into the shining. Only thing that makes sense to me

the stories in nightmares and dreamscapes werent that hard to find if you bought mens mags from the 70s like many kids, i snuck into my dad's stash and between looking at the pics, i checked out the short stories i read king before i knew who king was....and spent a ton of time going back through the mags to find more stories by the guy...little did i know that a lot of them were written under different names

I can count on one hand the number of people I have admired since my childhood. Stephen King is one of them. Reading his non-fiction work (Danse Macabre, On Writing, etc.) and hearing him speak in interviews is inspiring.

Stephen King best of the best. Good fiction is the truth inside the lie.

Sincerely, there are so many of Mr. King's works that SHOULD be TV series based directly on the books. None of this Under the Dome stretching it out to get more seasons shit...Start each series with a definite beginning and end and just let it take the time it needs to get from A to B. Video entertainment is in it's golden age right now...this is a no-brainer!
You're a faux bram stoker so scram the shows over

It, The Shining, and 11/22/63 were sure good. His interviews today are just like this but also with everything he’s written since

Stephen King has been an inspiration to me since I was just a young girl in my pre-teens. I used to "borrow" my stepdad's Stephen King books and stay up late reading them, terrified to go to sleep without a light on. Stephen inspired me to become a writer. I can thank my being published to a course I took on writing specifically for publication and Stephen King's book "On Writing: A Memoir to the Craft." For years, I've had an idea for a horror and my ultimate dream would be to present my idea to Stephen King himself and have him write it, but I know he'd most likely tell me that it's a good idea and I should write it! This is an excellent interview. Thank you for sharing. 🌹🌹🌹

It's odd how people of great talent always discount the multigenerational nature of their gift. Clearly, King's mother and father were writers, certainly more so than anyone in my family. So, it's pretty clear that some (or more than some) of King's motivation to write came from his own family, whether he realizes it or not.

Great interview. I was drawn to it after having just finished Doctor Sleep (I was 70 or so pages from the end and couldn’t put it down until the climax) and wanted to hear some of his pearls of wisdom. Get a little more of his steam.

Boy, was he wrong about Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. It might have failed at the box office, but it did not fail in the long run. When the miniseries The Shining came out, now that failed... Big time.
Jimvanhise Il y a 2 mois
My impression of Kubrick's The Shining is that he never finished reading the book because the last half of the movie is completely different from the book. The fact that Kubrick killed off Halloran showed that he had no understanding of how important that character was to the story. He just went for a cheap shock effect. The film just unravels. The mini-series is much better at telling the story but the child actor who played Danny in the TV mini-series is not very good whereas the boy who played Danny in Kubrick's film was perfect.

23:41 He says Gerald's Game and Dolores Claiborne are straight novels with no supernatural element. That's a lie. The two are connected via the same solar eclipse where a character from each novel makes a psychic connection to the other. Since this type of mind power has not been proven scientifically, it must be classified as supernatural for now. Stephen King likes to define the supernatural as a scientific phenomenon, rather than from spirits, ghosts, gods, etc.

@Dwight Schrute awesome! I didn't know that he got clean & sober until I read The Dark Tower. I'm wondering if he'd be my sponsor! 😉 I'm really happy for him; Steven King is my favorite author.

I think the reason why horror, western and adventure novels aren't seen as serious literature by the intelligentsia, is that they quite often deal with what's considered childish things. People are usually socially expected to grow up and leave their fear of the dark behind, or stop trying to daydream so much and get a good job. That's what's considered serious. Unfortunately, nothing is quite that simple. And dismissing entire literary genres because they bring up associations with childhood in some people, is failing to recognize the sheer skill it takes to write ANY kind of book well. It's possible to compose a restaurant menu so beautifully that it'll make people cry, so I don't see why the actual writing should take a backseat to whatever it's written on or about. Just as with music, as long as it speaks to you, it's good for you. It doesn't matter how academically recognized it is if you don't move in academical circles. A successful novel is the one that you like, regardless if you're the only one.

Yeah, I´m sure a miltimillionaire ubersuccessful writer, still going strong, is jealous of a dead dude. Both the movie and the book is great. King have never said the film is bad either, only that it´s a poor interpretation ignoring the core of the book completely.
