Stephen King Series

Sometimes the greatest remedy for writer’s block is the chopping block

Novelist Timothy Hutton starts to go a little cuckoo when The Dark Half of his creative mind – the part responsible for writing all of his salacious bestsellers – takes physical form and strikes out at the family and friends that push the author to be more wholesome.  Is this latest Stephen King story just a thinly veiled tell-all of the horror writer’s struggles with alcohol and alter ego Richard Bachman? Or should we consider this more like a new chapter in director George Romero’s Living Dead saga?  See if Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie are on the same page when you Listen Now!

Thad Beaumont is the author of a highly successful series of violent pulp thrillers written under the pseudonym of ‘George Stark’, but when he decides to ‘kill-off’ his alter-ego in a mock ceremony, it precipitates a string of sadistic murders matching those in his pulp novels, which are soon discovered to be the work of Stark himself. Looking like a maniacal version of his counterpart, Stark is not so willing to quit the writing game – even if it means coming after Thad's wife and their baby.
