Stephen King – On Writing

On Writing is half autobiography and half book of advice on how to write. His toolbox might not suit everyone wanting to write a novel but you should read it anyhow.

5 more books for a rainy day

Louis Theroux – Gotta Get Theroux This / Homer – The Iliad translated by Robert Fagles / Stephen King – If It Bleeds / J. R. R. Tolkien – Unfinished Tales / Lee Child – Blue Moon

Stephen King – The Outsider

The Outsider is another crime/horror cross-over from King in the same style as the Bill Hodges trilogy (Mr Mercedes, Finders Keepers, End of Watch) and while it’s not a sequel to those books it does exist in the same universe and indeed does feature the character of Holly Gibney. Spoilers ahoy!
