Strictly braincandy. Yummy, yummy braincandy. I do love Stephen King. Trust King to not only be an early adopter of new technology where reading and writing are concerned, but to be so totally immersed in it that he treats his fellow Kindle addicts to a delightfully personal novella!

This story was just plain fun. Mild-mannered English prof. finally breaks down and orders himself an e-reader: A Kindle. It arrives, in PINK, and with no instructions...and "experimental" features guaranteed to make every bibliophile drool. Just one example...what IF, on some plane of existence, Poe lived another 30 years, and published NOVELS?

But as with most things King, this gift comes with a price, and someone's gonna pay. And as an added bonus for King's Constant Reader, this story, like many of his others, has Dark Tower mythology woven throughout. Brilliant.
