    Stephen King On 'Twilight' Author: 'Stephenie Meyer Can't Write Worth A Darn' - omg! news on Yahoo!

    For saying what many of us have said since the beginning!

    If it's anyone who knows how to write a horror book or book about vampires/supernatural beings; it's Stephen King.

    And this is also quite true:

    EDIT: When it comes to the poll, you can only choose one. I would of added at least ten more but not enough room; the man just has too many books to put on one poll list I suppose. :lol: So feel free to vote other and state it here.

    I'm going with IT; one of his longest but easily his best when it comes to not only plot but character development, dialogue, and of course the villain. Pennywise The Dancing Clown aka Bob Grey is easily Stephen King's most recognized villain.

    "Sometimes, dead is better"

    I have a lot of favorites of his, depending on the mood... one of the least known books of his I really enjoyed was "Insomnia"

    But he is right... this twilight shit that the youngsters like, even my 14 year old realized it was written like shit and put it down about 1/2way in

    Dude, that's weak. The man was in a car accident that almost ended his life, never mind his battles with depression before/after along with alcohol and drugs.

    It's somewhat amazing that he is still a amazing writer. I can't wait for his new book this year. Under the Dome, over 1k pages and near 1.5k pages.

    Agreed, my friends made me read the 1st 10 pages one day. I thought it was a joke that it sold this many books and that it was called a great book.
