A great talk, the only improvement would be if the people asking questions were given a microphone....some of the questions were repeated for the viewers could hear, but not all. Other than that, very enjoyable. Thank you for sharing.

Love the man and his books. I've read most of his books and have read most more than twice. Great guy.

Love it very interesting to hear Stephen King himself about writing and his take on current novels in the market. Thanks for sharing!

That other author is so annoying. He made this a tad awkward than it needs to be. He even said, "I'm gonna choose a woman." When choosing people to ask questions, that was just...

King is no doubt a master storyteller, and a global treasure.

*29:43* The film script looked like it was written in a day.

He is right about reading the Shining twice.I read it as a kid and it scared the crap out of me. I read it as an adult and it wasn't as scary, at least not in the same way. But it was just as, if not more enjoyable. The second reading I read it through the lens of a middle aged father of a son roughly the same age as Danny and actually identified more with Jack whereas the first time I identified more with Danny. In a way the 2nd reading wasn't as scary, but in another way it was even more scary.

King's not had an original idea in his life. His books are all rip-offs of often repeated themes. Just one example Christine - The Car......

If Stephen King wasn't an author I could see him being a comedian.

He's actually pretty arrogant. The casual blasphemy is indicative of total lack of respect.

I can't stand famous people who don't realize they're just someone doing their job. Mick Jagger is a great entertainer who works really hard, just like I do on my computer each day.

41:54 I am at the part of Dark Tower which takes place near and at Algul Siento. And this is exactly what I was thinking was a mistake that was happening in this last book. In light of this many things also didn't make sense anymore. The worst example was the sudden change in behavior of you know who. Haven't finished the book yet though, so I might change my opinion.

Did anyone else feel a slight insidious auditory Stephen King trance when he started Telling stories?

I think he past away last year. He do not dismiss things like 50shades he understands you need to know bad literature to enjoy and appreciate good literature.What a nice man he certainly academically minded he could write anything apart from romance

Movies are the ultimate form of art. Much greater than books, paintings, music, sculpting, anything. They much harder to make and when done right nothing compares to them.

A bit of self trivia (but a *true* story): i'm an author too. I currently live in Portugal (former Toronto citizen) and in 2014 i won an important prize here in Portugal (Alves Redol prémio literário) with a dark themed book (An Eternal Minute of Silence) and i was compared by the people who awarded me to Poe, Hoffman and Lovecraft [the masters]... i know i should have been happier than ever, but in fact, believe it or not, i felt a bit down for the fact they "forgot" to compare me to King instead. Lol. I swear.

The other guy is Andre Dubus III who is a reasonably well-known author so he likely thinks people want his input too, but that is clearly laughable judging by comments.

"50 shades of grey" should not be analyzed by males. It is based on a archetype that does not have meaning to men i general. It is pretty much the story about " the beauty and the beast". A bad man - a beast - that falls in love with her and she civilizes him, controls the beast in him. He does not end up as i nice guy. In fact, woman hates guys that are all nice. They want dangerous men that are in full control over their danger side, and can use that for good things. Take care of himself, his family and her, for instance. Read any Harlequin novel and learn from this - you will be more successful among woman in that way. Men wants to hear the hero story, a young man that is thrown into a dangerous mission, and he grows from a weak and scared little boy and finds the dangerous savage part of him, that he takes control over and in that way kills the dragon and comes back as a king or what ever. That is just nature. And no, I am not a feminist.

I agree: Gah-bage! I hate MOST mainstream fiction. I definitely have a preference for literary fiction, horror, and sci fi. Being somewhat mainstream does not detract from Mr. King, though. I have been a King fan since I was a kid! BTW, I read The Shining when I was eight years old, and it STILL terrifies me. Also, kudos for shouting out Pickman's Model. That is one of Lovecraft's best stories! Love you, Mr. King! ("I'm your number one fan.") :P

I always thought my way of writing little stories.. that end in endless pages of complete book series that never see the light of day.. was weird. Until I learned King does the same, no years of plotting and 30 drafts, just kinda brain puke it out and mill it over in bed staring at the ceiling, now and then forgetting you've already made it to the shower and just wasted 30 minutes telling yourself.. your own story...

So glad everyone sees the depth of this guy -- he describes the creative process in believable terms, takes all the right things seriously, and offers great insights into everything he brings up. At first I thought his occasional mild surface arrogance would turn people off, but I think we all looked past that, because, hey, who has more right to be a little bit full of himself? He's the real thing and I could listen to him for hours.

I thought "Oh go on then. I'll just watch until I get bored." Suddenly, the dude's like "I hate to do this but just one or two more questions" What?! It's been a damn hour?!

At first I couldn't believe it when Stephen King said the sex scenes in 50 Shades of Blah were the best part... They are so awful, like nauseatingly awful, then I listened again and caught the context.
