I stumbled upon Stephen King while on a short trip to Bombay (there was no Mumbai then!) when I was about 15. I had been introduced to horror movies by a family friends and decidedly enjoyed the genre. Anyway back then in Bombay I discovered a tiny book shop that had stacks of Stephen King books and  I bought one book. Little did I know that that would be the beginning of a long, terrible addiction that continues to run me to this day.
Yes, that book was "Pet Semetary".

“The soil of a man's heart is stonier, Louis. A man grows what he can, and he tends it. 'Cause what you buy, is what you own. And what you own... always comes home to you.” 
― Stephen KingPet Sematary

So here's to ghouls, ghosts and things that go bump in the night... You can pretend they do not exist but can you ever be sure?

"Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win." Stephen King

  2. Here from the A-Z and agree that King is the supreme maestro of the ghost stories. My first one was Carrie. His quote about the monsters is also bang on.

  3. Been a while since I've picked up a Stephen King! I should soon! They do bring up goosebumps for me sometimes!
