Steven King to write a book on Red Sox' 2004 season...

Postby Y`s Guy » Fri Mar 26, 2004 1:16 am

From SteveKing.com :

Stewart O'Nan and Stephen King, lifelong Red Sox addicts, will chronicle the 2004 Red Sox season from spring training and Opening Day through to the highly anticipated events of the fall, in a hardcover book that Scribner will publish in late '04. They'll go to some games together and each will keep a diary. They'll argue or agree about plays and trades, and the result will be a fan's notes for the ages.

Well, this just about guarantees a few things. The story will end horrifcally and be really creepy and scary for Sox fans. They surely will see "the Ghosts" again.

Looking forward to this story, although it seems we already know the outcome. Be scared Sox Nation. Be vary scared.

Curt Schilling reviews PC games for the magazine PC Gamer. Cool, huh?

Hey don't forget King can actually write REALLY good stories that don't involve horror think The Green Mile and The Dead Zone one of the greatest books I have ever read. And he is a devout red sox fan. I like it when anybody discusses the sox and King should make for one hell of an entertaining read at least. By the way anybody else here hear that a Red Sox movie is coming out like next week or something that chronicled the entire 2003 season from ST to Game 7? Should be out in Boston theaters soon then New England and then national if I remember right. Im pumped.

Should be an interesting read. King has gotten a bit tired lately in his writings IMO.

He dabbled a bit in baseball/Red Sox writing in 'The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon'. A pretty decent short read if you need a book to get you thru a flight or something.

Little girl lost in the woods, with only her Walkman and the Red Sox to keep her company facing the terrors of being lost alone in the woods...or is she???

It's not The Stand, but a worthwhile read for baseball/horror/King fans.

As a King fan, I'm looking forward to seeing what he comes up with for this book. Should be interesting. :-)

King went through a really bad period but has now gotten back on track and his last few (Dreamcatcher, Bag of Bones). This should be interesting.

King's thoughts on baseball, and the Red Sox in particular, are always fun. ;-D

I wouldn't brag about not reading a book in years, although it comes as no surprise (kidding :-X )
