Mr King! This will probably be the only question I pose to a reddit AMA, ever, that I will pray for an answer to. As a kid from South Africa I'm not often awarded the chance to be in contact with my idols. I started reading your novels at quite a young age, they formed my transition from comics to the grown-up world of reading, my firsts, which made them the books I have judged all other books against and found wanting. I have read almost all your books and they inspred my love for reading. I can't thank you enough for the endless hours I had with your words in my company. Especially The Stand and The Dark Tower series, especially grateful for them.

Anyway, questions.

  • What's your opinion on Kubrick's The Shining and The Shawshank Redemption? Do you think they convey the stories you wrote well?

  • In light of above, which books of yours would you most like to be seen made into a film/series?

  • You quitting drugs and alcohol in the late 80's majorly influenced your writing (pre to post Needful Things), if we had to divide your bibliography into two era's, those which were written intoxicated and those that were not, which era's books do you like best and why?

  • Will we see Randall Flagg (or one of his many aliases) appear in any of your new works? He's a fantastic character.

I'm really looking forward to Doctor Sleep and the new Carrie film. Thanks again.

Your constant reader

Haha! And not even the cricket or rugby will stop you from trying.
