I had to write a quick post about this terrific review of the STEPHEN KING LIBRARY DESK CALENDAR 2013 that I edited and co-wrote with a terrific cast of contributors including authors, editors, and King enthusiasts.
Check out the review here.
David, over at his Talk Stephen King site, really got what we try to do at the calendar every year, and that is to put together a great collection of: trivia, essays, musings, etc., all related to the master himself, Stephen King, and his wonderful body of work. Thanks David, I'm humbled by your words. And thanks for the shout-out about the trivia, which my amazing wife, Fotini, puts together, every year, outdoing herself.
"I celebrate the guy's entire catalog."
In his review, he discussed some of his favorite essays by the likes of Peter V. Brett, Robin Furth and King expert Brian James Freeman--who wrote a special extended piece about putting together a special 25th Anniversary Limited Edition of IT.
I have a ball putting this calendar together each year, coming up with a theme, contacting contributors to write, working with the art director to come up with the creative design, and finding a few new contributors each year.
This calendar is developed exclusively for members of The Stephen King Library, Book-of-the-Month and the related book clubs. Check out the SKL here, http://www.stephenkinglibrary.com/ or here: http://www.bomcclub.com/
Now that I got all of that out, I can get back to watching the 12.12.12 concert, then do some reading later on. I'm just a book guy, but a New Yorker too, so if you can support Sandy Relief in any way, please do.
