      I don't think even a King fan would disagree with that. The thing is, the sheer volume of stuff he written means that there is decent genre fiction in it too, and a lot of it. Just avoid his latest slop and you should generally be fine if you're into genre horror fiction.

          When I think of King I think of a quote by Michael Moorwiener: "I'd rather be a bad writer with good ideas than a good writer with bad ideas". I feel like King is one of those bad writers with good ideas.

      Yeah I still remember that book review quote on the back cover "A CLIMAX THAT IS LITERALLY EXPLOSIVE". After that you basically know how its going to end after reading the first few pages where the boiler is mentioned.

      His short story collections are by far some of his best works. Different Seasons and Skeleton Crew were good. The Stand and the first 4 Dark Tower books were good, but once he started huffing his own farts and writing himself into his books while attempting to connect every fricking book he's ever written to the Dark Tower, it all went down hill fast. I read Cell after the Dark Tower (his supposed last book), and it was trash. So was Buick 88. I wish someone would try and adapt some his lesser known short stories like Road Work or The Long Walk into a movie, but I know deep down they would be awful.

    >Why do we pretend to hate King

    Because all of his stories are the same. All of them. There is something about his storytelling that just screams King, and that is even if I disregard his trope of a child with a mind of 30 year old following around some freelance adult.
    There was this movie with John Deep two decades ago, and the first scene was just camera going through a forest, then to a cottage, through window inside, and a shot of wooden office table with laptop on it, and at that moment I said 'It's a King movie', never ever heard of it before and yet, it was King movie.
    I turned it off when that weirdo showed up and harassed Depp, but let me guess - the weirdo wasn't real.

    Just skim through the first few chapters of The Outsider and you'll see exactly what I mean. Even as far back as the first Dark Tower novel you have Roland telling Jake that he loves him after thinking he's a very able-bodied boy.
