The Authors Thread

I believe he spoke of his condition on his website - it was reported on BBC 5 live yesterday.  I'm sure that lecture would have been really interesting - and entertaining - he's a fine speaker.
Just a really down to earth guy, with a great sense of humour. I'm really sorry to hear he is ill.

I think Stephen King who wrote the screen play for the movie "Stand by me" is the man. Super
I'm with you Robbie! Have you read many? I take it that's your favourite! I think my favourite bit of that one [though there are many], is when the kids ask the 'would be author' to tell them a story and he tells them 'The Revenge Of Lardass Hogan!'  lmao

I read a Stephen King co-write with an author whose name escapes me (sorry !). I think it was called 'Black House' ( I'm really impressive on my facts eh ?)  Anyway, the plot involved kids going missing, and it really freaked me out, at least until I got well into the book.  Does anyone know the book I'm talking about ?

Favourite author : Kurt Vonnegut - the world is a poorer place without him.

I'd like to mention Ian (M) Banks, who just yesterday announced he had terminal cancer and he is unlikely to survive any longer than a year.  I'm deeply saddened by this news. I have enjoyed his writing but, having heard him on TV and radio, I also think he sounds like a great bloke.  My thoughts are with him.
Yep! Got that one! What others have you read? I've got so many favourites! The Stand.....It.....The Green Mile......ect. ect.

Hi sid, sorry I didn't get to you sooner. 'Black House' is actually the second novel of a two parter by King and Straub. The first part is called 'The Talisman' and despite me having not read it yet, I've heard it's a cracking read.
