A trio of historically important events happened on September 21st.
Stephen King was born–1947.
H.G. Wells was born–in 1866.
J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit was first released–in 1937.
The King of Horror was born on this day–in 1947.
His importance to the world of literature–especially Horror–cannot be overstated. He truly is the “King”.
Today is the 68th birthday of:
The Master of Horror / the Maestro of the Macabre / the Monarch of Mayhem
Mr. Stephen King
Thank you, sir, for infecting me with the love of reading.
Is there a single Horror writer in the last 35 years that has not been influenced by this man? And he is still going strong–producing tales of horror & suspense that show that he is, easily, one of the most brilliant writers in American literary history.
