My friends know I don’t read Stephen King. I got through one of his early books and it scared me too much to read any more. No, I’m not a wimp. He’s just such a good writer. (And yes, my friends tell me there are a few less scary ones I should try.)
But my first exposure to his work means I’m happy to consider following his rules. This isn’t a new list, but it’s a good one.
