    I was looking at a back of a stephen king hard cover book outside of Boston and I see a picture of the author on the book. I look up and there is a guy who looks exactly like him looking at books on the other side of the rack.

    "Are you Stephen King?" I say holding up the book and showing him the picture.

    "Yup."

    "Weird."

    "Yup."

    "Alright, later."

    "OK."

    And that is my claim to fame.

    That being said....WTF is Gunslinger NOT up there in the polls?

    You forgot the Shining, it's in the topic title, but not in the poll.

    I voted for It, I first watched part of it when I was 8 or 9 and was scared of clowns for a couple years.

    My favorite movies from King are Shawshank, Stand by Me and The Green Mile. Favorite books would have to be The Green Mile and The Dark Tower.

    Grandpa: That's right. When I was your age, television was called books. And this is a special book. It was the book my father used to read to me when I was sick, and I used to read it to your father. And today I'm gonna read it to you.

    This has to be the worst poll I have ever seen. You dont really have any of his best work in there.

    Poll options not even close to his main works, no The Stand? No Dark Tower Series? Poll fails, but at least it does so epically, (seriously, "Secret Window"? pffft!)

    I picked Langoliers but if they were up there, The Stand and The Dark Tower series would far outweigh the available choices.
