Two links of interest in recent news:

  1. West of Sunset was chosen as one of “6 summer novels to perfectly match your summer holiday destination” by bt.com.
  2. In TribLive, “Pittsburgh writers find inspiration in Stephen King, his works“:

“When you look back to the ’70s and a lot of what we thought were important American writers, important literary writers, some of that stuff seems kind of mannered and silly and rather dated,” says Stewart O’Nan, the Regent Square writer who has collaborated with King on two books.

“You can go back and read ‘The Stand’ or ‘The Shining,’ and they’re amazing. I go back and read those books all the time. I end up buying used paperback copies just so I can take them wherever I’m going,” he says.
