Stephen King Favorite new horror writers? Well, of course, Joe Hill—I’m allowed to be proud of him because he’s my son, but I’m also a fan. Benjamin Percy (RED MOON) is terrific, and so is Paul Tremblay, whose novel about a case of possible demonic possession (A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS) ranks with the best of Shirley Jackson.
Stephen King My favorite movie this Christmas is TRAIN TO BUSAN, because to me, nothing says Christmas like zombies on a South Korean express train.
Stephen King The book I had the most fun writing was probably THE RUNNING MAN, which was published under the name Richard Bachman. It was tight and right from the get-go, and the first draft was finished in 10 days. Of course it’s a short book and I was a lot younger then, but still—10 days! Man, I was hot!
Stephen King I haven’t used a typewriter in a long, long time. I usually write on a Mac computer, but when I’m on the road, I still write longhand.
