The ride of your life Joyland'

King's powerful new novel defies genre definition

Truly great storytellers are a rare and precious thing. Few (if any) contemporary authors tell as good a story as Stephen King does. Back in the day, King was too often painted by the 'horror' brush and semi-dismissed. While things have certainly changed in the past decade-plus, there are still those who look at him as a penner of scary stories and nothing more.

But he's more than that. Much, much more. And his latest offering, 'Joyland' (Hard Case Crime, $12.95), is simply one more example of how truly great he can be.

Pulse radio introduces new dynamic duo

BANGOR - There's nothing scary about Stephen King's latest work, but he is hoping his newest project will get people talking. The well-known horror writer and Zone Radio Corporation owner has hired former U.S. Vice Presidential candidate Pat LaMarche, and former newsman Don Cookson, to host The Pulse Morning Show on WZON 103.1 FM and WZON 620 AM weekdays, starting Sept. 12.

"I've missed in-depth coverage of Maine events and politics in the Bangor market. We're going to be provocative, informative and amusing, and we think everyone will enjoy the show except for certain politicians," explained King with a chuckle.

His new team plans not only to discuss local and national politics but also homelessness, welfare, healthcare, the job market and the rising costs of education; nothing is off limits.
