His short stories are fantastic,his longer novels tend to drag on for a bit too long and the endings can be disappointing. Never read the Dark Tower series because it seems to be up it's own ass,seriously I read a synopsis of one book and King himself is a character? Nope don't want to read that crap.

Heh, I remember King books from my middle-school/early highschool years, and it was considered daring stuff cause you knew King would usually throw in a sex scene.  And since this was pre-internet, knowing which authors would be carried by the school AND would have sex in it, was a big deal.
