Gerard Fountain

Terr discusses at length the horror stories of Stephen King. She traces King's preoccupation with fear, injury, horror, and death to King's having been at age four, with a playmate killed by a train, an event he cannot remember. Terr shows how often traumas occur in King's work, sometimes as metaphor or in other indirect ways. He discusses the techniques by which King produces his effects.
