OT: Novelist Stephen King on bitter fans

Don't know what made me think of this (yeah, right) but Stephen King said in a TV interview (paraphrase from memory):

KING: "Sometimes I'll be heading with my family to a table in a restaurant or some such and a fan will stop me to sign some books. And I'll tell him it's family time and I don't want to disrupt it to sign books. And often these fans will react with surprising hostility. And it took me a while to figure out what was going on in their brains: "Why can't I be you?!"

Interesting.

He's lucky the fan didn't eat his family.

(Hey... this IS a Stephen King thread).

Hi Windmelody,

While I repsect you're opinion, please present it as such. Now it seems like you are THE authority on who is a great author or not.

Indeed, I love reading Stephen King, I believe a lot of his stuff is brilliant.
Just my opinion though.

Regards, Kees

King also said that the Beatles peaked in 1963 with She Loves You and I Want To Hold Your Hand, and that it was all pretty much downhill after that.

He didn't present it as an opinion?

I have no opinion on King, but he said he doesn't like him, you said you do. You say he has the right to an opinion and then jumped all over him for expressing it.

Here's a clue: this is the internet. EVERYTHING here is someone's opinion. There's no need to preface or end every post with a disclaimer: "Just My Opinion," it's understood. I know, people really hate reading others' opinions with which they disagree, but that's the way it is.

Just my opinion but too bad that King, for his 11/22/63 novel fell prey to the old and ridiculous idea that Lee harvey Oswald was the (lone) gunner.

Wiki : "Oswald, who is vocal about his support for Communist causes, is depicted as an ill-tempered loner who acts out of a self-absorbed desire for fame".
Hey Steve this is the BS they wanted ppl to swallow back in the 1960's! confused smiley

I agree. I even think he was paid/persuaded to sell the lone gunman line.

But some parts of the story were brilliant. The last chapter especially.

It had a very strong beginning but bogged down when the protagonist goes into excruciating detail about the school play, stalking Oswald, pound cake, broomsticks in bed, and a tedious defloration sex scene. The ending was frustrating to me, if inevitable. I'm reading "Joyland" now and so far, it's great summer stuff.

Oswald did kill JFK alone. Its an open and shut case. You fell for a hoax my friend..

Personally I also think King is a weak author. He is the type of author that will have a town invaded by vampires, and have someone just go about their normal routines. Like have a high school kid see a vampire the night before for the first time but then go to school the next day and be worried about basketball practice. Awful.

where is your proof that he was paid to say Oswald did it alone? IS that just a hunch?

The description of Oswald is right on there...

Why did Ruth Paine have a filing cabinet full of reports of pro-Castro activists?

Just your average American housewife (that Stephen King ignored).

And then then there was Oswalds time in New Orleans (which Stephen King ignored).

Then there is the redacted files on Oswald that the FBI and the CIA still won't release.

Oh yeah... and the single bullet trajectory doesn't work from the 6th floor TBSD (Dales Mayers made a CGI of it to "prove" it worked and was caught red-handed fixing the visuals).

There is a very long list of lots of things.

There is a great book by James Douglass called "JFK and the Unspeakble, why he died and why it matters".

I suggest you read it.

Kees, enjoy your lecture, I like authors other people do not find too impressive. King has millions of fans, and it is good if they enjoy his books.

Fantastic book that goes into painstaking well-researched detail. A real eye-opener.

Prove that Paine had filling cabinets full of that..This will be flimsy. Most CT don't even trot that out..


YOu mean Oswald's time in NO when he was passing out pro commie fliers? Who cares if King doesn't talk about it..You are just looking for any aquard peg to jam in a round hole..This is what CT do.


Typical of a CT. He says he knows there are cia files on Oswald, but he doesn't know what they say, but he assumes they prove conspiracy..This is the way you people work.

Meyers fixed nothing, its just that amatuers who are looking for a conspiracy claim he messed up. The amatuers are what run the conspiracy arguments.

JFK and the unspeakable is just one more conspiracy book full of half truths, cherry picking, and lies..

One question for you..If Paine was behind the assassination, and the filing cabinets were full of evieence to prove it why would would she leave them in her house for people to find when they searched her house after the assassination that she knew was about to take place..HUH..

The problem with conspiracy evidence is it never even makes any sense.

Educate yourself.

[jfkassassination.net]

The statement of Buddy Walters County of Dallas Sherrifs Department. Nov 1962

"Upon searching this house we found stacks of hand bills concerning "Cuba for Freedom" advertising, seeking publicity and support for Cuba. Also found was a set of metal file cabinets containing records that appeared to be names and activities of Cuban sympathizers. All of this evidence was confiscated and turned over to Captain Fritz of the Dallas Police Department and Secret Service Officers at the City Hall."

You do know that Ruth Paine was married to the stepson of the man who invented the Bell 47 helicopter (the Mash chopper) ? Michael Paine.

You do know that Ruth Paines mother was a friend of the mistress of Alan Dulles, head of the CIA?

You do know that Oswalds and the Paine's friend George de Mohrenschildt was a personal friend of the Bouvier family and Jackie referred to him as "Uncle George"?

For a low-life defector, Oswald walked in some pretty connected circles.

We could play six degrees of Lee Oswald but you'd only need two in most cases.

You simply can not look at LHO and dismiss it all as "lone nut".

Why would the FBI and CIA still have unreleased files on him?

Then there's Jack Ruby... oh Jack Ruby... the patriot...

If you don't want to ask hard questions then have a nice life.
