What users say about Stephen King
- Logan Raymond: Stephen King is also a huge inspiration to me. I remember reading Here there by Tygers in 4th grade as a class. And that's pretty much what got me into his stories. I have read Carrie, 'Salem's Lot, and The Long Walk. The Long Walk being my favorite so far. I do plan to read Cell here soon. I am extremely excited. He is a true king of literature. :) (May 15, 2022)

Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.
Fiction is the truth inside the lie.
If you don't have the time to read, you don't have the time or the tools to write.
