Format:Hardcover
The co-authors of this book are to be congratulated for their painstaking examination of the huge body of Stephen King's work,ranging from his early contributions to his high-school magazine; as a life-long sports fan, who is more than ready to write with great enthusiasm about of his own team and who is not afraid to show his misery at their lack of performance, but most important of all, King's growth into the highly-acclaimed novelist he is today. If any work is omitted from the text or is not readily available it is mentioned here and the authors give helpful references and hints to where unobtainable material might be found or instigate a search for such.

The writers' method of listing books in mainly chronological order could have become a wearisome catalogue of facts, but they have escaped any such accusation by varying the text with anecdotes and conversations between King, his family and his friends, which give us an insightful access to the author's musings on his own writing, on writing in general and his friendly and scholarly advice to other wannabe writers.

Aficionados of King should be satisfied to be offered such a comprehensive study of King's work and those less familiar with his writings ought to find the text informative and enlightening, giving them the chance to discover and sample any magazine article or book that King has written. Added to this, those who only know of King as a writer of horror will discover that his work encompasses a great deal more and that his scholarship and research is to be highly praised.

5.0 out of 5 stars One word WOW 30 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not one for rating apps or books etc on my kindle but this one really deserves it.

Why WOW you may ask..
Two reasons.. the first being for the well known legend Stephen King... The sheer volume of his work is extraordinary and if you are just a normal fan you would never see this side to him..

The second reason, is for this book. Others like this look into the non fiction etc but can be easily obtained. The research that went into this is incredible and i for one am grateful because this will help with my collection building. Finding out info on all the works spanning half a century must have been so rewarding, even if time consuming.

I would advise anyone to buy this and the money you pay is worth it..

5.0 out of 5 stars From The Beginning, Always A Writer 6 Mar 2013
By gtvManager - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was incredibly interesting to me, being a huge Stephen King fan, because it paints a portrait of where his writing passion came from - his school newspapers, self-published works, and other interesting bits of writing that stemmed from his real-life experience. This book is more like a cross between a biography and an encyclopedia of works that, if you have a copy of them, are a very lucky person. Kudos to Rocky Wood for once again showing that he is a master researcher. Some of these items would have been forgotten to the ether. It must have been fun to read some of King's articles when he was in college! I would recommend this book only to the King enthusiast, or perhaps someone at least relatively interested in King's personal writing, as it is a tedious book with lots of information, and really is more of a special interest piece.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not ALL non-fiction by fiction writers misses the mark 15 Feb 2013
By Joel Keen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For example, King's recent essay "Guns" I found to be an outstanding example. I have found MANY of his examples of non-fiction to rise above the ordinary. But, of the current collection, I felt somewhat disappointed.Of course, I may be missing the mark; I an far from being an acedemician (I apparently cannot even spell it correctly).
That is why I once I comented would find it enthralling to read an essay on the cleaning and care of firearms... if the said essay were penned by the illustrious Mr. King. In other words, I would probably find ANYTHING he writes interesting. 'Nuff Said.

Jeff Tweedy's feet are light and nimble. He never sleeps. He says that he will never die. He dances in light and shadow and he is a great favorite. He never sleeps, Jeff. He is dancing, dancing. He says that he will never die.
