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!

Overview
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.
