In regards to the concentration of Stephen King novels, I read horror 
texts throughout October leading up to Halloween. I had just finished 
King's  Dark Tower series, and continued onto 8 further King 
novels. The final book was finished in late December. I've learnt two 
things since: one, Horror isn’t scary on a page - but perhaps my 
potential to be horrified has been tarnished since Ellis' American Pyscho; and two, King isn't a horror writer. King is a storyteller that develops laboured tomes that cross genres.
