What Writers Does Stephen King Like to Read?

onwritingWhat writers does author Stephen King like to read? Peter Abrahams, Pat Barker, Nelson DeMille, James Agee and Kirsten Bakis are among his top choices.

In the afterword to his book On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, the horror author outlined a list of 96 books that he recommends writers read. Aerogramme Writers’ Studio has shared the entire list on their blog.

“As you scan this list, please remember that I’m not Oprah and this isn’t my book club,” King explained along with the list. “These are the ones that worked for me, that’s all. But you could do worse, and a good many of these might show you some new ways of doing your work. Even if they don’t, they’re apt to entertain you. They certainly entertained me.”
