Welcome back. After his father left them when Stephen was two, he and his older brother, David, were raised by his mother. Trouble is, George Stark isn't too keen on going quietly into the night. This book was just SO damn good! I wonder how his kids see their father? Refresh and try again. I haven’t enjoyed a King book so much in a long time.

THE DARK HALF. Aside from the psychopomp business with the sparrows and Stark falling apart, The Dark Half is pretty much a crime book. A potent, engrossing blend of occult and slasher horror, not as fully riveting or grandly ironic as Misery, but without the pomposities of much other recent King—It; The Tommy-knockers—and certainly slick and scary enough to make it the book to beat on the fall lists. George Stark says so. by

But when the pseudonym takes on a life of his own and starts killing people connected to Thad, can anything stop him? It calls up Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, the book's 50-year-old antecedent.

Along with several other women (including one black woman, Sophia, whose employment causes controversy in a town that doesn’t believe black and white people should be allowed to use the same library), Margery and Alice supply magazines, Bible stories, and copies of books like Little Women to the largely poor residents who live in remote areas. FAMILY LIFE & FRIENDSHIP, by Unlike King's own Richard Bachman pseudonym, though—to whom King claims "indebtedness" here, and who was laid to rest after exposure by a resourceful reporter—Stark takes on malignant flesh after Thad (staving off threatened exposure) kills him off by going public in People magazine.

A totally wild ride! It was like a huge decoding effort during the entire read. This book was just SO damn good!

Stephen Edwin King was born the second son of Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. How does he do it book after book after book?

Stephen King published this fine novel in 1989. Still one of my faves. Stephen King

The plot exhibits King's wild imagination and creative gifts! As in Misery, King again fantasizes from his own writerly experience, creating as his hero Maine author Thad Beaumont—who, in addition to literary novels under his own name, has written four grisly best-sellers under the pen name of George Stark. Before and after reading THE DARK HALF, I read some reviews of this usual, some I liked, and some I didn't.
