Unpopular Opinion
The Dark Man: An Illustrated Poem - Glenn Chadbourne,Stephen King

I don't like Stephen King's writing.  It turns out I like his poetry even less.

 

His poem goes at length to describe the doings and ramblings of The Dark Man, who wanders through desolate scenery, stuff common to King writings.  Abandoned circuses, crawling spiders, misshapen scare-crows, etc.

 

Finally he reaches his destination, abandoned carnival equipment litter a field, a young woman scantily clad touches herself when she sees the Dark Man coming.  He kills her.  The end.

 

I just don't understand what people see in Stephen King.

 

The art here is also not my favorite.  It's goopy in a Gammellian way, but not nearly as well done as Stephen Gammell.

The Illustrated Man
The Illustrated Man - Ray Bradbury It is always a thrill to read works by Ray Bradbury, and this was no exception. If you are ever looking for a literary palate cleanser, I'd say you can't go wrong with Bradbury.

Ambition: Bradbury
The Illustrated Man (Flamingo Modern Classics) - Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury is one of the strongest influences on my writing, and this book is no exception to that.

 

More than just astronauts in rocket ships, Ray Bradbury's work resonates and impacts our own world and lives. This collection of short stories ranges from planets of the future, desperate exploration, spoilt little children, and a beautiful homage to Poe. Bradbury never fails to intrigue, enthral, disgust and entertain.

One hundred and twenty-six, as of last month. They tried to push a bill through Congress back on Earth a year ago to provide for a couple dozen more, but oh no, you know how that is. They'd rather a few men went crazy with the rain.
