  • Author Margaret Atwood theorizes why Carrie is still horrifyingly relevant, decades after its release (The New York Times).

  • Author George R.R. Martin and many other creatives describe the effect that King has had on their lives (The New York Times).

  • King is indisputably popular and influential, but is his work actually great literature? (NPR)

  • Book Review editor Gilbert Cruz explains where to start with King's huge body of work (The New York Times).
