Happy birthday, Uncle Stevie

Stephen King turns 65 today. I don't think he'll be retiring any time soon.

See that book cover to the left? Joyland will be released by Hardcase Crime next summer and Dr. Sleep is (now) scheduled to hit shelves exactly 368 days from today.

Some readers maybe didn't like King's previous short novel for Hardcase Crime The Colorado Kid. It wasn't exactly a crime novel and it wasn't scary in the way most expect King to be. It was fun and weird and sometimes that's all you need.

How about that cover, eh? Nothing like a knockout redhead to sell a few extra books. Love it.

So pick up your favorite King book, short story, or movie based on his work and say happy birthday.

Long live the King.
