So, Stephen King finally hits the big-time with an Edgar win. Bravo! I guess I ought to read his winner. Perhaps crime rather than horror will be his new niche in bookstores. (And thanks, Peter, for the excellent posting and photos!)

Well, he had written crime before, including for Hard Case. But he did talk about having the idea for a crime story, then having doubts because he had never written crime fiction before. "But," he told himself, by his own account, "if you have an idea and you don't write it because you've never written it before, you're a fucking asshole."

"Asshole" was definitely part of his utterance, and I think I got the modifier right, too. That's right: Stephen King outwore James Ellroy.
