UI prof addresses inner Stephen King

When T.J. Tranchell was 11 and friends his age were reading Goosebumps, he was entranced by his introduction to Stephen King. "It was Misery," Tranchell says, "and I still wanted to write" after finishing the horrifying tale of an author and his biggest/craziest fan. Now the University of Idaho teacher we talked to last fall about locally produced horror flicks can officially call King a peer with the publication this month of his first horror novel, Cry Down Dark, by Blysster Press, a small publisher specializing in the creepy and crawly/Dan Nailen, Inlander. More here.

Question: Are you a Stephen King fan?
