A New Stephen King Story

For just a squillionth of a second there you thought I was publishing a new Stephen King story, didn't you? Go on, admit it, you though the world had gone quite, quite mad!

But no, gentle reader, Mr. King is not appearing in ST, by arrangement with his common sense. His new story has been published in The New Yorker, which is a proper publication that has articles on sensible things, very intellectual cartoons, and general classy stuff. (There's an Amazon pilot for a New Yorker TV series, I rather enjoyed it.)

Anyway, the story is here.

It contains the sentence: 'Around two o’clock, while the little girls were playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey and Musical Chairs, Jim Trusdale entered the Chuck-a-Luck and ordered a knock of whiskey.'

You just know this will not end well.

Stephen King should wish he might elbow his way into ST. Actually he has placed stories in a number lower-profile venues. Worth a try- go ahead and solicit a story! Seeing ST on the bestsellers list would be sublime deight.
