    Book News
    Stephen King to hang it up
    Horror writer tells ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY he's through.

    Dateline: Wednesday, September 25, 2002

    Source: Contra Costa Times, Entertainment Weekly Web site.

    In an exclusive cover story, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY magazine reports that Stephen King has "written his last book". Currently wrapping the 7th and last volume of THE DARK TOWER series, King was quoted as saying "Once these books are done there is nothing else to say."

    King reports he's done writing books five and six. The tentative publication schedule slots five for fall 2003, six for spring 2004 and seven in fall 2004.

    That sucks. I've always thought he was underappreciated as a literary genius. Look at the greatness that has flowed from the pen of Mr. King:

    Running Man
    Green Mile
    Shawshank Redemption
    Carrie
    Cujo
    The Talisman
    Pet Cemetery
    Christine
    The Shinning
    It
    Hearts in Atlantis
    Needful Things

    I'm sorry to see such a prolific writer go - but at least he goes on his own terms.

    My wife is going to be disappointed. Although, it wouldn't surprise me if he decided to write another book a few years down the road. Writers and like musicians and artists, their craft is in their blood. I don't think you can just 'retire' from it. Who knows, maybe some just get sick of it all.

    Well at least he's finished the Dark Tower books! I've been reading those fucking things as they came out since I was a teen. I'd be mightly pissed if he'd left that story untold. Roland rules!

    Hmmmm...not a big Steven King fan but having lived in the same state as he currently does for 23 years, maybe he's moving to another state where he knows he won't have the same sheer boredom and ennui that currently both drives and warps his imagination!

    He says he'll continue to write, just not publish anything anymore.

    Who gives a shit as long as he finishes those fucking books. I've been waiting for the past 3 years just to get to book five. After that, I don't care if stops writing books or starts writing sitcomes.

    Just make Roland kick some ass before ol Stephen, kicks out.

    I saw the guy on 60 minutes a little while ago and he's going blind. I'm sure that's a factor in this decision.
