Reading to my 3-year-old grandson and so re-discovered Cat-in-the-hat. So surreal, so post-modern! Wonderful.

Twentieth Century Ghosts

by Joe Hill  (Stephen King's son)   :o
"Twentieth Century Ghosts"? Do you think he might be referring to his father and trying to make his own name independently while forever being "haunted" by the success his father had in the previous century?

Wow. That was a bit deep for a Friday afternoon, wasn't it?

I'm trying to read the part of the Bible that says Jesus hated people, but I just can't find it. Maybe someone will be so kind as to share chapter and verse with me.

He's actually got quite a few books now:   

He used his first and (part of) his middle name, to try to determine if people were buying his books for him, or for his father's name. I don't think he has to worry. This short story collection is excellent. So was Heart Shaped Box and Horns.

I think this might be about as close as you will come to what you're looking for:

“If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple."

Got hooked on the series, so decided to break down and read Game of Thrones.

Husband thinks it's sacrilege, but I know he's just jealous.  ;D

Forgive my ignorance, but what is "Game of Thrones" and why would reading it be considered "sacrilege"?

Having finally amassed them all so that I can read them in one long binge of a marathon, I am about to start The Gunslinger; the first of Stephen King's Dark Tower collection.

To say I am looking forward to it would be a criminally massive understatement.
