Midmorning With Aundrea - July 2, 2020 (Part 2)

Sometimes all the talent goes in one big pot.

That appears to be the case with the group that local author bj hyman is talking about today.

Here's as the page turns.

B.

J.

Hyman: today we're going to talk about all in the family and this is going to be part one.

This is about the king family.

The first one i'm going to talk about is stephen king.

What can i say?

He's stephen king.

If you google how many books he's actually written, they don't have a static number, they say at least 97.

I thought that was odd.

He is not just an exclusively horror writer.

He has written a lot of other genres, even though he's known mostly for his horror.

I mean, carrie, salem's lot, gerald's game, he's got so many horror stories out there.

He also wrote the green mile that while it has some magical qualities to it, some supernatural qualities, it is definitely more of a story of humanity.

One of my favorite movies is shawshank redemption, which came from one of his novella length, which is really a full length short book called rita hayworth and the shawshank redemption.

B.

J.

Hyman: and it is an amazing story that has no magical quality to it at all.

Joe hill is his son.

He started writing under hill, which is the first part of his middle name, so that he would not be in his father's shadow.

And so, that he could stand on his own and stand he has.

He's not just stephen king 2.0, he definitely comes to the page with a flavor that is all his own.

My favorite of his is actually the first one i read of his, heart shaped box.

This story is horror for those who really do truly love horror.

It is an incredibly scary story and so well written.

Stephen king is known for the movies that they've made from his books and tv shows.

Well, joe himself has also got a tv show right now, nosferatu.

He had horns made with daniel radcliffe of harry potter fame.

B.

J.

Hyman: and so, he himself is starting his own empire.

Owen king is stephen king's other son and owen doesn't seem to have quite the same skill, his collection of short stories was called we're all in this together.

It came out with mixed reviews, but his collaboration with his father called sleeping beauties, which is a very good book by the way, that one came out with a lot better reviews.

It makes you wonder since it was a collaboration how much was the dad and how much was owen.

And the last person we're going to talk about in this very good writing family is tabitha king.

B.

J.

Hyman: a lot of people don't realize that stephen king's wife is also a woman and an author.

She has books that date back to the 1980s.

She's put out, i think it was 20 books of her own, but so many of them are done with small presses that they're very hard to get your hands on.

So it's hard to find some of her work unless you read stephen king.

Stephen king quotes his wife's work in so of his novels that if you're a fan, have gotten a flavor of what tabitha king can write.

As always, you can find my books on amazon.com and you can email me at bjhyman2112@gmail .com.

Until next time, happy reading.

That and more on the next midmorning.
