With dozens of bestsellers and internationally praised novels, Stephen King has become a household name and well-known author worldwide. His novels such as Carrie and The Dark Tower series have captured audiences, catapulting the author to stardom. His “constant reader” base continues to grow and hang on the author’s every published word. However, King isn’t alone in the elite group of writers—authors from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries such as Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, and Charles Dickens have also penned novels that captured the world. Upon closer look, King’s stories and characters share striking resemblances to those of the great authors of the past. But, like the works of Poe, Lovecraft, and Dickens, can King’s novels stand the test of time? Filled with examples from King’s bestsellers, Stephen King: A Face among the Masters examines the author’s inspirations and what makes his books so captivating. Why is Carrie still so relevant, decades after its publication? What makes 11/22/63’s Jake Epping so memorable? How does King master creating such complex worlds in The Stand and The Dark Tower? These are the worlds only a master writer can create.
