Quantcast

 

We recently made up a nice list of James Patterson books so that fans wouldn’t miss one (as there are so many). We’ve been getting a lot of visitors coming to that page, so there must be a need. I thought it would be nice if we did the same for another author whose has published a fair share of books, Stephen King. Of course the difference being that Mr. King actually wrote all of his books – but that’s a discussion for another day.

Before getting to the list I thought I’d share an anecdote about one of Mr. King’s bookshop visits, which happened to our lead writer here at The Bookshop  Blog, Diane Plumley.

So, when Mr. King entered the store one day to browse, like any other tourist customer, I was gobsmacked. I wanted a signed book of his, badly. He was greeted warmly by the owner, other staff members, and was kindly signing a few titles for the store. I grabbed the first thing I saw with his name on it, not checking what the heck it actually was. Handing it to him to sign with my timid request, I received a glare that could blind a city. I was nonplussed. However I didn’t have time to think what the problem was–he told me, in no uncertain terms. [Full story ...]
