Even though I'm not particularly a fan of the horror genre, I've always had a soft spot for Stephen King. Anyone who is self-deprecating enough to admit that he is the literary equivalent of Big Mac and fries is someone I have to admire. Besides his charming lack of ego, I also enjoyed King's articles in Entertainment Weekly and his appearance on "Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me." Added to all of this, King doesn't like Stephanie Meyer's writing. He may just be new literary crush.
