Stephen King is major scary again

I have a soft spot for Stephen King. And I frankly think that when 500 years pass, people will be more likely to study and read him than most of the literary writers we venerate today. So I suppose it’s good that, according to the NYT, King’s new book is his scariest yet — in part because the evil monsters are …. wait for it …. us.

I don’t know. The vampires in Salem’s Lot were pretty damn scary. I was about 10 when I read it, and my dad climbed the side of the house outside my bedroom window at night to knock on it and hiss, “Geordie…. open the window….” And you all wonder why I’m like this?
