Interesting discussion of The Stand and King's oeuvre in general

After three years, The Stand readalong is complete.

Ben read the book in three days in high school.

Stephen King wrote The Stand as an American fantasy epic, like The Lord of the Rings.

Stephen King got his worst writer's block during the writing. He didn't quit only because he was already two-thirds through the book.

Ben's off-the-top-of-the-head recommended Dark Tower reading list:

  • The Dark Tower series
  • The Wind in the Keyhole
  • Eyes of the Dragon
  • The Talisman
  • Black House
  • Hearts in Atlantis
59:19 Always check before you sleep with a woman if they're having visions of the Antichrist.
