People think that I must be a very strange person. This is not correct. I have the heart of a small boy. It is in a glass jar on my desk. - Stephen King

Stephen King is one of the best authors I know. If you've read The Stand, Desperation, or The Cell, I bet you've fell in love with him as an author. His new series Under The Dome based on the book is my favorite show. I'm curious as to if he's going to have a little cameo on Under The Dome, since he appears in every one of his movies, including the short series The Stand. People need to acknowledge his work. It'll be worth every second of your time.

Remember when Stephen King took his book Rage off shelves when it was found in the bookbags of a few school shooters? He's responded again due to the recent Sandy Hook tragedy.
