    Maybe we should add the 2010s to the poll now

    I think I have, only don't know if it works, since I'd already voted

    someone who hasn't voted yet should test it

    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    It shows up, but obviously you can't vote since you already did before.

    yes, so someone who is new should try to vote this decade

    I can edit the vote later, should they want to change it

    Yep. 80s is definitely the majority of titles that stand out to me. If he was nineteen when he started The Slinger what decade would that have been? 70s? 60s?

    thank you!!! I have edited the poll accordingly, but as far as I know it will still show your vote for 2010th in italics, even though the count is 0 - there's no way I can change it; but in reality your vote is for the 80s.

    I went with the 70s. Although SK has had an amazing career I find his 70s output to be his most visceral and powerful. As a young writer coming into his own I think he was the truest to himself, painting on new canvas so to speak, exploring themes for the first time and more in touch with his roots. Take way official publication dates and ponder what he wrote during that decade: Carrie, Blaze, 'Salem's Lot, The Body, Roadwork, The Running Man, The Shining, Apt Pupil, most of the stories in Night Shift, The Stand, The Dead Zone, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, Pet Semetery, and Firestarter. That is one heck of a line-up!

    Hehe, I'm going with the 80's and I can even show my work!

    October 1982 Creem Magazine article.


    The language is colorful, it's a pretty good read, I bought this from Stu a few months before he closed up. Thought I might as well share the article.
