It should not come as a surprise to anyone that eBooks and eZines allow publishers to offer the same material and information but at a fraction of the cost. It should also be of no surprise that digital formats are on the rise. The ability to read a book, magazine, or article at the push of a button is so amazing and something that print versions just cannot compete with.
Well, most of us with our ears to the ground heard this news coming from far off. Fangoria isn’t likely to produce another magazine in print. Ever. The troubles that Fango has been having stretch back years (all the way back when I was writing for them in 2008), and while I won’t point any […]
Deadman’s Tome is home to Book of Horrors, a horror anthology loaded with terrifying horror short stories that’ll chill you to the bone!
Just about every other blog boasts a list of BEST Stephen King novels, but Deadman’s Tome asks what Stephen King novel is MOST significant to you. Not which Stephen King novel do you find the most entertaining, the most fulfilling, or the most well-written, but which one has the most significance.
Out of all of Stephen King’s novels, Fire-Starter is the most significant to me. Not Carrie, not The Stand, or even the Dark Tower series. A simple story about a little girl with a bizarre and dangerous power bound with a cover that horrified me. Stephen King’s Fire-Starter haunted me by cover alone. Granted, I was maybe five or six when it happened, but the memory lingers to this day like a phantom I cannot shake. My mother had a bag of novels stashed away at my grandmother’s house, and one day I wanted to peer inside. I looked into the bag and a set of piercing blue eyes stared at me from the darkness, seemingly lit by the illustrated fire.
I know, I know. Childhood memory and nostalgia trip may not make for significance for others, but for me it did and still does to this day. Firestarter was a story I read during 4th and 5th grade book reading days, while others read Goosebumps and Babysitters club. Firestater was an influence for when I wrote The Bleeder series. It’s significant to me.
So, I ask again. What Stephen King novel do you find most significant to you?
