Abandoned ‘Dark Tower’ TV Series Showrunner Glen Mazzara Shares What Could Have Been

At this point, it’s probably time to admit that Stephen King‘s Dark Tower series just isn’t adaptable to the screen, big or small. After years of development, we were cursed with a lackluster movie adaptation that failed to capitalize on much of the mythology and world-building fans of the book crave. After the movie’s failure, there was some hope that a Dark Tower TV series might set things right. Amazon bought the rights to the series, and The Walking Dead‘s Glen Mazzara was hired as showrunn...

The Shining – review

Director: Stanley Kubrick Release date: 1980 Contains spoilers When I reviewed Doctor Sleep, the sequel to the Shining, I did so on the basis that the True Knot, the primary antagonists, are energy vampires who prey on (primarily) children with the shining. However, we are told within the film that the Overlook hotel also fed upon the Shining (making it a vampiric building) and that the ghosts within the hotel feed on it too (making them vampiric ghosts). Now I’ll be the first to admit that loo...

How to Get Your Kid Started on Stephen King

Write Only 500 Words Per Day and Publish 50+ Books: Graham Greene’s Writing Method

Image via Wikimedia Commons Nobody can write a book. That is, nobody can write a book at a stroke — unless aided by aggressively mind-invigorating substances, and even then they seldom pull it off. As professional writers know all too well, composing just one passable chapter at a sitting demands a Stakhanovite fortitude (or more commonly, a threateningly close deadline). Books are written less one chapter at a time than one section at a time, less one section at a time than one paragraph at a ...
