While I am not the biggest fan of his horror fiction, I love what happens when someone does a movie based on one of his books.  Furthermore, I think that his book, On Writing, A Memoir of the Craft, rivals even The Elements of Style for being a necessity to every writer.  If you desire to write, you need to read and re-read both of these books. You should also look over his FAQs, specifically the section on writing.

Recently, I discovered another reason to like and respect the horror writer.  He has this page at his website titled Stephen King Dollar Babies.  It is a place where a film student can buy rights to one of King’s works to do a film project.   Honestly, what film student wouldn’t want to do a King story?
