Stephen King and The Dead Zone
If you stopped by last week, you’ll know I’ve begun a series of “reader appreciation” giveaways where I feature my influences in horror and dark fantasy. I loved being able to give away a 1990 hardcover edition of The Stand and this week I’d like to continue to honor the King with a 1979 first edition hardcover of The Dead Zone.
As I mentioned in last week’s post, Stephen King is probably the single biggest influence on me as a horror writer. He is the reason I read and write in the genre. The Dead Zone is a different kind of King novel, one without a clear antagonist most of the way through the book. The story is about a young guy with a bright future until an accident leaves him in a coma. He wakes up five years later, his entire life different. And he now has a special ability. I don’t want to spoil the rest of the story if you haven’t read it.
I will be offering regular giveaways. These will include (but are not limited to) hardcover versions by some of my favorite authors; Stephen King, Dean Koontz, H.P. Lovecraft and more. In addition, I’ve found other prizes horror fans will truly love and I’ll reveal those in the near future.
There is no catch. You enter the contest and I’ll email you the winners when it ends. If you are a winner, the prize will show up at your door. That’s it.
Here’s to hoping these gifts will inspire the next generation of horror fans and writers.
