I have been a Constant Reader for many years now. Stephen King is the kind of writer I would love to be. He creates characters that anyone can relate to and throws them in absurd, but within reason, situations. He is obviously a fellow lover of words and is a master of the show-don’t-tell principle. His use of language is real, vivid, livable, current, and precise.
