Full Dark, No Stars.

Speaking of FDNS,I went looking for the meaning of this title and couldn't find a reference, but did find this on Wikipedia:

"...One of the novellas, 1922, is set in Hemingford Home, Nebraska: home of Mother Abagail from King's epic novel The Stand (1978), the town adult Ben Hanscom moves to in It (1986), as well as the setting of the short story "The Last Rung on the Ladder" (1978)...."

Ann (annrumsey) | 14981 comments Carol: That is interesting about the Mother Abigail link!
Stephen King is on record for saying he won't be a part of a proposed new remake of the Stand. http://www.liljas-library.com/ right now this is under Latest News
The moderator on King's official board confirms that King won't be involved with the remake of The Stand.
Stephen King: 10 things I know about the remake of 'The Stand'
1. No one will be able to top Gary Sinise, who played Stu Redman in the original ABC miniseries. He was perfect. When he says “You don’t know nothing” to the soldiers who are putting him under mandatory quarantine, you believe his contempt completely. My runner-up pick would be Jake Gyllenhaal.
2. I didn’t know anything about the remake until I read about it on the Internet.

Ann, were you a member of the SKemers many years ago on the old AOL boards? I was, even got a shirt in 1997 from the group. They were very active and attended a yearly SK outing to Bangor, Maine. Then, they only had a newsletter, earlier this year they quit that too.

Yes, I was a Skemer on AOL and still am though the group has evolved into a Yahoo Skemers group of about 129 members - SKEMERS@yahoogroups.com that still sends a daily digest out. It always sounded so fun that they went to Bangor and on trips together.
I mainly keep up with any Stephen King news by reading the Liljas-library.com news (also a Yahoo group with a newsletter) There is a SKEMERs on Facebook Group too.
