The themes of loss of innocence, abuse, and the battle between good and evil are woven into Stephen King's stories. In his books King explored almost every terror-producing theme imaginable, from vampires, rabid dogs, deranged killers, and a pyromaniac to ghosts, extrasensory perception and telekinesis, biological warfare, and even a malevolent automobile.
Stephen King's writing style has made him a legacy as a bestselling author under the horror and psychological fiction genre. Though his work was sometimes disparaged as undisciplined and inelegant, King was a talented storyteller whose books gained their effect from realistic detail, forceful plotting, and the author’s undoubted ability to involve and scare the reader. Stephen King also creates identifiable characters that elicit immediate sympathy from readers due to inherently flawed but human traits.
Stephen King is one of the most prolific and celebrated authors of our time. His approach to horror fiction has inspired countless other writers, and his novels have been adapted into some of the most successful films and television shows of all time.
“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”
“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
“Get busy living or get busy dying.”
“Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.”
