There is an old Family Guy cutaway which depicts Stephen King meeting with his publisher to pitch his next novel.

A Scottish-Canadian Blethering On About Books
Not my usual cup of tea. Of course I've heard of Stephen King, and I have vivid memories of the movie "Carrie", but I'm not a horror fan in general.
