Me and Stephen King have so much in common. We both wear glasses (not shown). We both live on the East Coast. And we both hate Twilight. The only difference is that King actually read the book(s). I’m just an ignorant snob. While promoting his new book, King was interviewed by USA Weekend. During the interview, King was asked his opinion on the mega-success of J.K. Rowling and Stephenie Meyer. King got mad real:
“The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephanie Meyer can’t write worth a darn,” he said. “She’s not very good.”
But OH NO, the Horror-Don didn’t stop there! WHO’S NEXT!!!
King declared Perry Mason author Erle Stanley Gardner “terrible,” Dean Koontz “sometimes…just awful,” and James Patterson “a terrible writer” who is nonetheless “very very successful.” (Source)
King then went on destroy Papa Doc…without the beat! Till the next episode.
