This reminds me of an episode of Dateline or 48 Hours Mystery I saw once. An independent horror filmmaker in Canada went full method acting and killed some people.

Obviously Stephen King didn't have anything to do with this.  There would have been months of long-winded character buildup and no payoff at the end.

This is why you only marry method writers if their genre is "Romance."

By 'author,' well, they are technically correct.  He appears to self-publish through Amazon's digital services, which is an increasingly valid methodolgy, but I'm pretty sure he's doing the covers and the grammatically murdered (har) 'jacket' copy as well.

Stephen King didn't see this coming because the lion does not notice the termite, even if the termite has a nice review on goodreads that his Mom probably posted.

/there isn't even that one review, actually.

Never heard of him. Is he a published author, or does he just have half a dozen unsold manuscripts laying around?

In Kings own words:

"It's cold, I'm not a cold guy. I think one of the things people relate to in my books is this warmth, there's a reaching out and saying to the reader, 'I want you to be a part of this.' With Kubrick's 'The Shining' I felt that it was very cold, very 'We're looking at these people, but they're like ants in an anthill, aren't they doing interesting things, these little insects.'

Jack Torrance in the movie, seems crazy from the jump. Jack Nicholson, I'd seen all his biker pictures in the '50s and '60s and I thought, he's just channelling 'The Wild Angels' here."


I totally agree with King, which is why the movie is vastly superior.

 I got the same annoyance as many other people after about 30 someodd King novels.  Sometimes there is just too much character build up for no apparent reason.  This is why I stopped reading.   I made it about half way through Teh Tommyknockers, closed the book and gave up.
But then I got a hold of the Dark Tower series.  I think he redeemed himself with that one.  Yes, it's like 8 books long.  But it's such a crazy, twisted story, it's captivating all the way through.

I checked out the "look inside" feature on a few. To describe them as unreadable might be an exaggeration, but then again, I wouldn't argue with someone who wants to say they are.
 
2013-09-23 05:28:48 PM
He's an "author" in the same sense that I'm an author because I once wrote a report for my boss analyzing the trade-offs between three different commercial software packages. It had my name on the cover page and everything. And a logo in the corner.

Mark Twitchell. Pretended to be a lady, lured a dude to his garage, killed him, cut him up and dumped the body parts in the sewer. I went to the same Radio and Television school as him, although a year or two after he graduated. Doesn't look like a psycho killer does he?

Creepy book author thread?  Creepy book author thread.

I was in B&N the other day and picked up Ghost by John Ringo.  The more I leafed through it to figure out if I wanted it, the more I realized I'd read porn stories on the Internet less farked up than this book.  The "hero" is a Galaxy-class coont, the whole of the book is a right-wing military fantasy taken to a terrifying extreme, and there's rape.  A lot of rape.

/apparently, Ringo really liked rape

In the days when I still read King, back during the first Reagan administration, I needed to turn 3/4 of my brain off so that every plot hole didn't stick out like a beer tent at a Mormon church picnic.

That is 100% the wrong book to start reading  by John Ringo.  Google the words 'Oh, John Ringo, no' for the best dissection of the mess, which was in fact linked to by Ringo himself in a large self-deprecating acknowledgment.  In short:

Ringo is actually a quite good military SF writer whose books pal around with such subgenre luminaries as David Weber and David Drake.  At one point, blocked up trying to write something decent, he let one of the shiattier creatures in his id run around and wrote a mess of pages that he fully acknowledges are the sort of thing that jizz splattered on a piece of paper might create after a million years of trying.  As a laugh, he showed it to either his editor or his publisher (I forget which), who said, 'fark it, we'll take it.'

Still laughing, they published the rampaging id monster and its sequels.  They're terrible, Ringo will not lie to you about this.  But he'll cash the check, because why the fark wouldn't anyone?

As I write this, fear and trepidation fills my heart, I am reminded of an similar incident involving the former Ms. Slam.

It was also around 2am, when I was awoken from a drunken slumber by "She whose "beauty" I stole", kicking and screaming at me.

I did tell her to go away before I knocked her out.

I really was even more annoyed at the arrival of the police, for the Domestic Violence Incident.

Divorce can be ugly. People play games trying to get the upper hand. People will do crappy things.

And as such, I won't make a statement on this act beyond this; The guy was an idiot. I hope he doesn't have to spend the rest of his life in prison, just the next 5 -10, if she pulls through. If not, he's real lucky that they can only keep him for the rest of his natural days.

I'll send him a soap on the rope.

Pro Tip? If you are getting a divorce, move out. Period.
