Praise For…

Praise for Magistrale's Hollywood's Stephen King:

"A great read, insightful and intelligent...Tony has helped me improve my reputation from ink-stained wretch popular novelist to ink-stained wretch popular novelist with occasional flashes of muddy insight."--Stephen King

"Magistrale digs deeper than mere plots, excavating compelling and disturbing themes in the gothic oeuvre of the master storyteller; he deserves accolades for bricking a foundational context for interpreting the enduring visions of King."--CHOICE

"This book is a useful elucidation of King's work through the skewed lens of Hollywood."--Publishers Weekly Review
