No matter where you call home, or when you were born, chances are readers (and viewers, subsequently) recognize Stephen King as one of the extremely few men on this planet that truly embody the term Master of Horror. The living legend has been inducing nightmares for more than 40 years with wildly unorthodox tales and breathtaking epics.
A diverse and passionate visionary, King’s work ethic and imagination go virtually unparalleled in the market. Prolific may not even begin to do the man’s body of work genuine justice. It all started in 1974, and 55 novels, 11 collections, seven novellas and a slew of comic books later it’s become quite apparent that the native of Maine not only cherishes his craft, he shows absolutely no sign of slowing down.
We wanted to take a moment to show our appreciation for the man who’s seldom (if ever) truly let us down; a quixotic inventor who constantly makes it a personal mission to raise any bar that he himself had previously established. What better way to show an iconic figure of the horror world our appreciation of his work than to share with you a video that oozes love for the man while piquing fan interest? You can bet this video will get you riled up. Don’t be too stunned to find yourself prowling local bookstores or scanning Amazon, desperately seeking any novel that you may have unfortunately missed.
Below you’ll find that aforementioned and nifty little video that counts down King’s novels – from worst to first – as the title says. Fans are bound to spot some positioning that they strongly disagree with, which is precisely why we invite you to dive into the deepest recesses of your own mind, where you’re free to make your own adjustments.
Just don’t inundate us with hate mail. Rather, enjoy this vid for exactly what it is: a thorough reminder that there is not a single other mind imaginative enough to knock King from his proverbial throne.
It’s time to celebrate the prestige of a modern day wizard wordsmith!
