If someone purchased THE TURN OF THE SCREW based on the cover shown in this article, boy are they going to be baffled!

I was thinking what Deb was. James would roll over in his satin lined grave if he saw how they'd pitched his book. Not a fan of this list.

Bill Crider said...

I think that cover is the best marketing James ever got.

I've read some of the books on the list, Ed, and what it needs is something by Daniel Ransom and Jack MacLane.

I've read about half of the titles and agree, it isn't the list I'd have picked. IT? Not even close to King's best.

Ed Gorman said...

Bill you're obviously right. MacLane and Ransom had damned well better be on that next list.!

Should I bother? How much blood pressure medicine will I need?

Hey, only five piles of shit among those I've read or tried to (including the first Ellis and IT...OK, four, since I'm simply blithely assuming on LUNAR PARK).
