Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less.

Stephen King is considered by many to be among the 20th century's most prolific writers, and he virtually defined the modern horror genre. With a portfolio of forty-nine published novels and countless more short stories; King has won a number of literary awards, including the Bram Stoker Award, and The World Fantasy Award For Life. Many of King's novels have been adapted into award-winning movies, including The Shining, Children of The Corn and Carrie.

Stephen King was born in Portland, Maine, on September 21,1947 to Donald Edwin King and Ruth Pillsbury King. As a young man, Stephen King attended Lisbon High School in Lisbon, Maine in 1962. He notes that his high school career was "totally undistinguished. I was not at the top of my class, nor at the bottom."

King considers The Dark Tower series to be his masterpiece, and rightly so. The Gunslinger's been featured on The New York Times Bestseller list, and has been translated into thirty-eight languages. In total, the Dark Tower series has sold over thirty million copies. First conceived when the author was only nineteen; the epic tale of Roland of Gilead spans a total of seven novels, and has won a number of prestigious awards for its masterful, far-sighted storytelling. Throughout the series, he weaves in characters and villains from dozens of his other works, connecting them all to the sinister persona of The Crimson King.
