Awesome / Stephen King

A lot of scary things happen in Stephen King's world... and sometimes his characters rise to the challenge.

  • 1408
  • Bag of Bones
  • Carrie
  • Paul Sheldon finally delivering Annie's comeuppance at the end of Misery.

    Paul: Eat it! Eat it until you choke, you sick, twisted fuck!

  • Sort of a meta Real Life example. King is a voracious reader, and generous with his praise for new authors, who get a Colbert Bump from his reviews. For example, last year King tweeted about Paul Tremblay 's Head Full Of Ghosts which has been nominated for the 2016 Stoker awards.
  • King's dedication to writing counts as this. After the Kings' third son was born, King had a vasectomy. There were complications, and one day as he was writing Firestarter, he began to bleed. Mrs. King found him with a lap full of blood, like something out of his own books, but he just had to finish the scene before going to the hospital!
    • And then he got hit by a van...
