One of the main catalysts in my decision to read all of Stephen King from start to finish was Ryan McKenney from Trap Them and his blog http://insomnialways.blogspot.com/
For anyone who doesn't know of the band, they are tremendous. If you have a palate for hardcore punk/grind/d-beat, you're in heaven. If you also get wood at the idea of a guy who writes lyrics set in and about a fictional ghost town, then meet your new favourite band.
Anyway, the guy's compelling and here are two King related bits from his blog.
The first is a feature on the Decibel Magazine website where he was asked to pick his Top 5 King works.
And the second is an essay on reading and Stephen King.
