Has Stephen King ever written a zombie novel? If not, he should.


Because the junk he's writing these days sucks wicked hard.

Acctualy, I belive he has a zombie novel in the mix as we speak. Unfortunatly, the source of infection is cell phones. Yeah, he has run out of ideas.

Yeah, but COLORADO KID wasn't intended as horror. Really strange book. I enjoyed the characterizations and scene-setting, but I agree with everyone else that the ending was a cop-out.
Why does everyone gripe about King these days? He's getting up there in years, he got run over and half killed, and he ganks himself worse than anyone else about his plots wearing thin. If he does a zombie book, it'll be because he thinks he has a unique approach (or a new grossout).
But except for Peter Straub, no one else is half that good at horror books, even today. So what are ya gonna do?

I think I'm going to write a zombie novel about spammers who go on spamming from beyond the grave: SPAM OF THE DEAD!
The commercials would say "Once they get your address, they never die," and "Deleted but not gone!" It would go straight to DVD, of course, but it would be an underground cult hit.

Get it, underground? I slay myself sometimes (nearly every day actually).

Pet Sematary was kind of a zombie novel.

Well I don't know about zombie books but he has done vampire ones. But that book looks like a peice of crap, of course its wrong to judge a book by its cover

saint_villas -- I remember hearing something about that a while ago. Thanks for reminding me.

p_e -- I only pick on King when he writes bad books. He just writes more of them these days. Dreamcatcher, for example, was the worst anything ever. His Dark Tower stuff has been good all the way to the end, though.

crimenotes -- True, in a way. But more zombies weren't created by biting, and if you don't have that, it's not a true zombie story, in my eyes.

cassarass -- After my hiatus, I think I've decided my posts here will continue, but will be fairly irregular. Unless the mood strikes me to write a bunch at once, which you never know.

rokan -- I always judge books by their covers. In fact, if the cover has an Oprah Book Club sticker, I buy it right away. The whole book club is full of zombies, don't you know. Oprah zombies.
