King of Maine

Stephen King is one of my heroes. His imagination is seemingly infinite.  Many of his stories are set in Maine, adding a dark mystique to this ruggedly beautiful state. The town of Derry only exists in Mr. King's writing, yet somehow it feels as real as Portland, Bangor, or Rockport.  I only hope the monsters living there are made up. Prints are available here!

Here's a portrait of George Orwell; his masterpiece 1984 is ranked among Mr. King's ten favorite books of all-time:

  1. A very happy birthday to the King of Maine! I was a big fan of The Shining as a kid. Can't wait to read the sequel(out next week), Doctor Sleep.
