I can't live off of gratitude and satisfaction, Godoggo.
Love the short La Jete? Like to write? I have the job for you. I need someone to do a write-up to be included with the induction of La Jete in the Mofo Hall of Fame. The pay is my forever gratitude and the satisfaction of having your name attached to something inducted into the HoF.

Pm me if interested.
Heh. I just read that "A Good Marriage" is, in fact, being adapted. Doesn't really feel like it could be anything other than a single episode/airing, and one of the things I liked most about it was how straightforward and restrained it was, so hopefully it won't end up all bloated.
I really, really liked Full Dark, No Stars. I only gave it
in this Reading Tab post three years ago, but looking back I should've gone higher.

I think I'd rather see both "1922" and "A Good Marriage" from that collection, but "Big Driver" is quite good, too.
NOTE: The story "Big Driver" is actually part of a collection of a handful of King stories called FULL DARK, NO STARS. So, if you own that collection, you already own this story. Silly me -- I have the book.
The premise does look interesting... but I am eternally skeptical of Stephen King works when they hit a screen (TV or movie). Nearly all of them lose a lot in translation. Notable exceptions are Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Shining.
I don't really know about that. I think it is going to be a good show though.

Yeah, I just saw an ad for the book form for this one. Somehow it slipped by me, but probably because it looks like it was for the screen first, book second.
Actually, my criteria for all the content I ingest is one simple question:

Does Honeykid like this?

If so, it's terrible. If not, it's great!
