Autres livres recommandés par Stephen King : 



MOONDEATH, de Rick Hautala (Zombra, 1981)

MOONBOG, de Rick Hautala (Zombra, 1982)

Haunted Heart ; the life and times of Stephen King, p97 : 

« Rick Hautala, Steve’s classmate from the university of maine, … , signed with Kibry who prompty sold Rick’s Horror novbel MOONDEATH to Zombra, which published it in 1981. King wrote a blurb for that book and Hautala’s second, MOONBOG, which came out the following year. »


AMERICAN GODS de Neil Gaiman… blurb, extrait de SANDMAN 8

« Il est, tout simplement, un pur trésor d’histoires et c’est une chance pour nous de l’avoir, de livre en livre. »

« Gaiman is a treasure house… we are lucky to have him. »

> extrait de l’introduction de world’s end


HELLFIRE CLUB, Peter Straub : déja dans mon livre je crois


Knuckler: My Life with Baseball s Most Confounding Pitch (Paperback), de Tim Wakefield

“A terrific book about one of baseball’s most underrated pitchers, not to mention baseball’s most misunderstood pitch.” – Stephen King


DOMINION, by C.J. Sansom:

« DOMINION, by C.J. Sansom: Great alternate-history novel. The Nazis win, occupy Britain. On sale this week. Check it out. »

> Twitter, 26th of january, 2014 >

« That book DOMINION is terrific. And no, this isn’t one of those publisher-sponsored blurbs. I just fell in love with it. Nice and long, too. »



DOING HARM, by Kelly Parsons

« DOING HARM, by Kelly Parsons: best damn medical thriller I’ve read in 25 years. Terrifying OR scenes, characters with real texture. »



Nick Cutter : The Troop [Kindle Edition]

« The Troop scared the hell out of me, and I couldn’t put it down. This is old-school horror at its best. »—Stephen King


Dona Tartt’s THE GOLDFINCH : 

Source :

He was recently asked by the New York Times to review Donna Tartt’s new novel, The Goldfinch. « And Donna Tartt is an amazingly good writer. She’s dense, she’s allusive. She’s a gorgeous storyteller. But three books in 30 years? That makes me want to go to that person and grab her by the shoulders and look into her face and say, ‘Do you realise how little time you have in the scheme of things?’?

Critique dans le New York Times : (enregistré sur le PC)



Source :

He has a lot of sympathy for JK Rowling, who was spectacularly mauled for her first non-Harry Potter novel, The Casual Vacancy, which King is reading at the moment. « Man, this book is like… Do you remember Tom Sharpe? It’s a bit like that. And it’s a bit like Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? It’s fucking nasty. And I love it. The centre of the book is a dinner party from hell and you say to yourself, ‘These little people in the town of Pagford are a microcosm not just of British society, but western society as a whole, of a certain class.’ The fact that she set it around this little election that nobody cares about in a shit little town is fabulous. She’s a wonderful storyteller and the writing is better than in any of the Harry Potter books, because it’s sharper. »



Stephen King recommended book. He said in Entertainment Weekly’s column The Best Books I Read in 2012: « I took two steps into this series last January, lost my balance, and went in headfirst. The HBO series is great, but no match for the wild generosity of the books. Swordplay, dragons, and magical fire-queens are all very well, but Martin brings something better to the table: an array of unforgettable characters and a staggering imaginative scope. »


THE BORDER, by Robert McCammon: Rip-roaring, old-school SF. Mean aliens, heroic earthlings. Subterranean Press. Late May. I dug it.


Jayne Anne Phillips : QUIET DELL 

« Have you read the book #StephenKing deemed « the novel of the year »? #QuietDell @jayneanneonly 

It is a blurb on our QUIET FELL jacket. A book on Steve might be a conflict of interest but you should probably send to Nan Graham. 




“Natchez Burning is extraordinarily entertaining and fiendishly suspenseful. I defy you to start it and find a way to put it down . . . This is an amazing work of popular fiction.” (Stephen King) blurb on the front cover

From the publishers website : 

‘Natchez Burning is extraordinarily entertaining and fiendishly suspenseful. I defy you to start it and find a way to put it down; as long as it is, I wished it were longer. There’s a bonus: you’ll finish knowing a great deal about the deep south’s painful struggle toward racial equality, and the bloody road between Then and Now. Only a southern man could have written this book, and thank God Greg Iles was there to do the job. This is an amazing work of popular fiction.’ STEPHEN KING


RED MOON, by Benjamin Percy

« Finished RED MOON, by Benjamin Percy. A werewolf epic. Can’t stop thinking about it. »

Twitter :


Crosscut, by Meg Gardiner 

Stephen King recommended book and author. He says: « Full of classic Gardiner one-liners…but mostly there’s a serious freezerload of scare-you-silly chills. »


THE ACCURSED, Joyce Carol Oates

Stephen King recommended. He says: « Joyce Carol Oates has written what may be the world’s first postmodern Gothic novel. . . You should read it. »


Silken Prey by John Sandford

Stephen King recommended on 6/3/13 Today Show.


The Good Son, by Michael Gruber 

Stephen King recommended: He said: « Sonia Bailey, a remarkably astute woman with a colorful backstory, leads a peace delegation into Pakistan, where her party is kidnapped by jihadists. Her son Theo sets an elaborate rescue plot in motion…but Sonia has a few tricks up her own sleeve. Let’s just say she out-mullahs the mullahs. The suspense is terrific, but in this book it’s a bonus. I learned more about the jihadist mindset in these pages–and in an entertaining way–than in all the cable-TV punditry I’ve seen since 9-11. Cerebral, emotional, heartfelt, this one’s the complete package. President Obama, if you happen to come across this column, read this book. »—Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly


The Road Out: A Teacher’s Odyssey in Poor America, by Deborah Hicks 

Stephen King recommended book. He said in Entertainment Weekly’s column The Best Books I Read in 2012: A wrenching account of one woman’s attempt to show a group of at-risk preteen girls that literature can offer them a better life, and possibly even an escape route from their poverty-stricken and drug-racked community. The prose is occasionally clunky, but the girls are luminous. Their stories will touch your heart.


Some Kind Of Fairy Tale , by Graham Joyce 

Stephen King recommended book. He said in Entertainment Weekly’s column The Best Books I Read in 2012: « There are two gone girls on this list, but only one who may have been abducted by fairies. That’s Tara Martin, who disappeared from home at age 15. When she shows up 20 years later, she still appears to be 15. Here is a keenly observed tale of a family in crisis, one that mixes fantasy and psychiatry in a potent cocktail. »


The Caller, by Karin Fossum 

Stephen King recommended book. He said in Entertainment Weekly’s column The Best Books I Read in 2012: « Pranks can have lethal consequences, even when they seem harmless to start with. Fossum, a Norwegian poet who has turned to crime, has confected a poison bonbon that ranks with the best of Ruth Rendell. »


The White Devil, by Justin Evans 

Stephen King recommended book. He said in Entertainment Weekly’s column My Top 20 of 2011: « Want a good English ghost story to read by the fire on a cold winter night? This tale of a malevolent ghost haunting a troubled American ­student at Harrow will fill the bill. It gathers you in lovingly, then takes you in a strangler’s grip with its escalating horrors. »


Crossers, by Philip Caputo 

Stephen King recommended book. He said in Entertainment Weekly’s column My Top 20 of 2011: « A New York financial whiz loses his wife in the 9/11 attacks and flees to Arizona to rethink his life. There he falls afoul of a Mexican drug queenpin named Yvonne Menéndez. The result is a mix of ­Cormac McCarthy, Ian McEwan, and John D. MacDonald. What I’ll remember most clearly are the wrapped packages of high-powered cocaine stamped ‘This Is Our War on the North Americans’. »


Talk Talk, by T.C. Boyle 

Stephen King recommended book. He said in Entertainment Weekly’s column My Top 20 of 2011: « Dana Halter is a schoolteacher with a good life and a handicap (which she refuses to think of as a handicap): She’s deaf. Everything changes when she’s pulled over after failing to come to a complete halt at a stop sign. Instead of the ticket she expects, she’s handcuffed and taken to jail. What follows is a richly written novel of escalating tension and a character study of an amoral identity thief you may never forget. »


Skippy Dies , by Paul Murray 

Stephen King recommended book. He said in Entertainment Weekly’s column My Top 20 of 2011: « At 660 pages it’s probably a little long, but this is still one terrific coming-of-age story, full of humor, pathos, and downright weirdness. Skippy dies right away (in a doughnut shop), but the hows and whys are filled with humor and unexpected beauty. »


The Casual Vacancy, by J.K. Rowling 

Stephen recommended author and book. He said: « She’s a wonderful storyteller and the writing is better than in any of the Harry Potter books, because it’s sharper. »


The Turnaround, by George Pelecanos 

Stephen King recommended author and book. He says: « Pelecanos, best known for his work on HBO’s The Wire, is perhaps the greatest living American crime writer. »


The Troop, by Nick Cutter 

Stephen King recommended book. He said: « The Troop scared the hell out of me, and I couldn’t put it down. This is old-school horror at its best. »


The Killer Next Door, by Alex Marwood

If you read Alex Marwood’s THE WICKED GIRLS, her new one–THE KILLER NEXT DOOR–is even better. Scary as hell. Great characters. 

Twitter :


THE LIE, by Hesh Kestin

Scribner, mars 2014

« A page-turner that will engage your mind and emotions in a way few novels do. The narrative is headlong, the issues have never been more current, and the characters come alive from the page. This is a story about the lies we tell until the truth is forced upon us, and about divided countries, including those of the human heart. I started reading; I ended up experiencing. The Lie is what great fiction is all about. »




THE ACCIDENT, by Chris Pavone: if you like real nail-biters, this is the best one so far this year. 


THE SECRET PLACE, by Tana French :

Read THE SECRET PLACE, by Tana French, when it comes out. You’ll understand then. Great book.



The Golem of Hollywood by Jonathan Kellerman & Jesse Kellerman

“An extraordinary work of detection, suspense, and supernatural mystery. I spent three days totally lost in the world Jonathan and Jesse Kellerman have created. This is brilliant, page-turning fiction with mythic underpinnings that give it a special resonance; a rare collaboration where the sum is truly greater than the parts. The book is like nothing I’ve ever read before. It sort of took my breath away.”—Stephen King

SOURCE ; Bev Vincent………….. couverture?


The Good Nurse, by Charles Graeber 

« You think Annie Wilkes was bad? Check out this chilling nonfiction account of Charlie Cullen, a friendly nurse who may have killed several -hundred patients before he was caught. Now, there’s a real cockadoodie brat. »



I’m loving THE SOUTHERN REACH TRILOGY, by Jeff Vandermeer. Recommended by an indie bookseller. Creepy and fascinating.

> via StephenKing on Twitter Stephen King on twitter, via : 


NICEVILLE and THE HOMECOMING, by Carsten Stroud: crazy-good supernatural/crime/horror epic. Blew me away. 


Really one novel. You’ve never read anything like it. Faulkner crossed with Steve King. 



Michael Grant’s GONE serie

« I made Michael Grant’s GONE series last, but finished the last one today. I am now free to leave the FAYZ, but my time there was well spent. »



STATE OF WONDER, by Ann Patchett:

« STATE OF WONDER, by Ann Patchett: took me awhile to get around to it, but boy, was it worth it. Highest recommendation. »



BROKEN MONSTERS, by Lauren Beukes

« BROKEN MONSTERS, by Lauren Beukes: Scary as hell and hypnotic. I couldn’t put it down. Next month.I’d grab it, if I were you. »




« Remember when paperback originals were cool? Sex, action, suspense? Try FRANKENSTORM, by Ray Garton. It’s old school. »


JACK READER novel  (serie)

I got an advance copy of the new Jack Reacher novel. It’s the best one yet. Out next month, I think.


CONSUMED by David Cronenberg

« Consumed is an eye-opening dazzler. Not for the fainthearted, but for those of us who relish a trip into the shadowy depths, a must-read. » – Stephen King


Fingernails, by Jason D Williams

« Jason D. Williams, oh my God. The second coming of Jerry Lee Lewis. Download « Fingernails. » Do it now. Your ears will thank you. »



The Golem of Hollywood

« “An extraordinary work of detection, suspense, and supernatural mystery. I spent three days totally lost in the world Jonathan and Jesse Kellerman have created. This is brilliant, page-turning fiction with mythic underpinnings that give it a special resonance; a rare collaboration where the sum is truly greater than the parts. The book is like nothing I’ve ever read before. It sort of took my breath away.”—Stephen King »



SNOWBLIND, de Christopher Golden : « ce livre vous glacera les os et le coeur »




« If you liked THE MIST, try DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, by Brian Keene. Excellent short horror novel. »


YOU, by Caroline Kepnes

« YOU, by Caroline Kepnis: Hypnotic and scary. A little Ira Levin, a little Patricia Highsmith, and plenty of serious snark. Cool stuff. »



THE RECKONING, par Carsten Stroud

« Reading the last book in Carsten Stroud’s horror/suspense NICEVILLE trilogy, THE RECKONING. Out in August. Good God, what an achievement. »



THE PAYING GUESTS, by Sarah Waters

Finishing THE PAYING GUESTS, by Sarah Waters. Awesome full-bodied novel. It’s like she’s saying, « Hey, dudes, this is how you do it. »


THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, by Paula Hawkins:

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, by Paula Hawkins: really great suspense novel. Kept me up most of the night. The alcoholic narrator is dead perfect.



GONE GIRL, by Gillian Flynn

Dans l’interview de SK à Manatee FLorida, 2015 (52e minute, j’ai l’interview video sur mon PC)


BIG LITTLE LIES, by Linda Moriarty

« Trivia Night is the climax of BIG LITTLE LIES, by Linda Moriarty. It’s a hell of a good book. Funny and scary. She nails the feuding moms. »



Sarah Lotz : DAY FOUR

The new Sarah Lotz novel,DAY FOUR, is really good. USA edition comes out June 15. It’s the cruise ship from hell.



Dennis Lehane’s WORLD GONE BY

Dennis Lehane’s WORLD GONE BY is the best gangster novel since THE GODFATHER. Terrific story, shattering conclusion.




THE POWER OF THE DOG and THE CARTEL, by Don Winslow: I’m totally swept up. You can’t ask more for emotionally moving entertainment.



AMNESIA by Peter Carey

« I enjoyed Peter Carey’s wonderful novel, AMNESIA–not least of all because it brought back memories of playing Zork. »



BAD COUNTRY, by CB McKenzie: Terrific crime/suspense/mystery novel, but the real revelation is his fresh and original voice.



THE QUICK, by Lauren Owen: A terrific (and terrifying) novel of the undead in London. Completely involving, impossible to put down.



A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS, by Paul Tremblay

Here’s one I’ll second whole-heartedly: A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS, by Paul Tremblay: Scared the living hell out of me, and I’m pretty hard to scare.


CLOSE YOUR EYES: The best Michael Robotham novel yet. Once I reached the last 100 pages, it really was impossible to put down.



The Death House by Sarah Pinborough

« Moving and totally involving. I couldn’t put it down » (Stephen King)




A LONG DECEMBER by Richard Chizmar 

« Powerful…I love it…Richard Chizmar writes clean, no-nonsense prose…sets his tales in no-nonsense, middle class neighborhoods I can relate to…and writes terrific stories served with a very large slice of Disquiet Pie. »



THE LONEY by Andrew Michael Hurley (2016)

> Blurb : « it’s not just good, it’s great. an amazing piece of fiction »


THE NIX, by Nathan Hill

I’m reading THE NIX, by Nathan Hill. Just started, but so far it’s got me laughing hysterically. First 50 pages are worth the price.



THE TWENTY-THREE, by Linwood Barclay

Loving THE TWENTY-THREE, by Linwood Barclay. You should treat yourself to the whole Promise Falls trilogy.



FINAL GIRLS, by Riley Sager

The first great thriller of 2017 is almost here: FINAL GIRLS, by Riley Sager. If you liked GONE GIRL, you’ll like this.



DARKTOWN, by Thomas Mullen: A brilliant blending of crime, mystery, and American history (Atlanta, just after WWII). Terrific entertainment.



BEHIND HER EYES, by Sarah Pinborough

Spent most of the day reading the second half of BEHIND HER EYES, by Sarah Pinborough. What the Brits call « a thumping good read. » Bravo!


Anyway, you should read BEHIND HER EYES. Even if it’s not a thumping good read, it’s bloody brilliant.



THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD, by Colson Whitehead: Terrific novel of escape, sacrifice, and redemption. Reminded me a bit of Larry McMurtry.





AUTEURS recommandés par Stephen King 



Neil Gaiman : 

« Gaiman is a treasure house…. We are lucky to have him. » Au dos du AMERICAN GODS de laura


Graham Joyce :

« Very sad to hear that Graham Joyce, a truly great novelist, has passed away. Too soon. Far too soon. « 



Clive Barker :

My copy of The Inhuman Condition partial proof has a two-page introduction entitled « An Appreciation of Clive Barker » by King that was not included in the published version. It also has only Barker’s story « Revelations ». See post #101 in my Collections thread.

Two versions of the proof : a full proof with ONLY a quote on the back, and a partial proof (the fantasy sampler : the book of blood), a single story Revelations with 2 page appreciation.


Thomas Tessier

« Thomas Tessier’s writing is scary, grim, fast-paced, very good! »


Ruth Rendell

« I’m dismayed about Ruth Rendell’s stroke. I hope you guys will spare a good thought for her. Her books are simply amazing. « 



Herman Koch is rapidly becoming one of my favorite writers. His 3 novels, taken together, are like a killer EP where every track kicks ass.



William Peter Blatty : 

RIP William Peter Blatty, who wrote the great horror novel of our time. So long, Old Bill.
