Stephen King is great! Dean R. Koontz is another author whose books I enjoy.
Who is your favorite author? Stephen King is mine. He has been the cause of about 90% of all my nightmares.....LOVE that man!!
I have so many ! I'll list a few.
Preston and Childs
Joe Hill (Stephen King's son)
Many many more !
I like James Patterson.
When I tell people I LOVE horror fiction or science fiction novels, they seemed surprised to learn that I've never completely read a Stephen King novel! (I started The Long Walk, but never finished it!) But, I really like Michael Crichton and James Patterson, among others.
