Stephen King is the only bastard able to ruin a good zombie fiction setup. I hated Cell, and went through it biting my lip.
His older stuff, the shining, wasn't so bad. So young and full of ideas... and booze.>>12312916>cthulhu
yeah yeah, we all know about your superior race.
Lovecraft was obsessed with the theme of race mixing, and it shows in SoI. And I recall that whenever he raved on the jews, his wife reminded him she was one too. Or something like that, it's very blurry.
Point is, it doesn't matter, he still did the best mind scarring fiction. Conveying the sense of forbidden knowledge that drives to insanity; it always gets me.
