Haiku Wednesday: A Halloween Ode to Horror

 
Legend of Zelda;
Anorexic PSA,
A pawn of the King.

 

 The sight of this clown
Makes me need to change my drawers…
They all float down here!


Overlook Furries,
Gimme some snort-hog lovin’!
You’re my caretaker ❤


I don’t feel so well.
Puppetmasta, puke fasta!
This grosses me out*

 *Actually grosses me out.

 

 

Leatherface Wanted:
Tall, must fill up a doorway,
cross-dress / skin sew soft.


Turn around, bright eyes.
The pow’r of soup compels you!
Hey, who wants split pea?


{Besties with Pinhead}
I have a HUGE toothbrush and
I floss with your fear.

Getting Back Into the “King” of Things

I’m not into Harry Potter (all gasp!) or Twilight (tweenage gasp!)

“Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend.” –Stephen King

I am watching –not reading– the True Blood series (southern gasp!)
And I’m listening to the audiobook series of Game of Thrones (LOVING it).
I just finished The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson and thoroughly enjoyed it, though I thought the ending/resolution could have been stronger for me.

But recently I recommitted myself to reading Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series because I’ve grown up with and have read LOTS of King, liking most of his novels (but not Insomnia) and loving his short stories the best. I’ve read the short story in Everything’s EventualThe Little Sisters of Eluria which is a snippet of the D.T. series and was engrossed in it. And I have read the first book in the series, The Gunslinger, years ago and am re-reading it now with the intent to finally charge through all 7 books. The horror genre as purveyed by King has always appealed to me and I’ll give his western-fantasy-apocalypticae a chance. Yep. I guess that’s all I have to say (*crickets chirping*). I missed my Haiku Wednesday posting this week = ( as life got in the way. *shrugs* Ah well, keep on, keepin’ on.

Any other S.K. fans out there? If so, what was your favorite book or story? And why? Talk to me.
