On 'IT': Seriously, Guys, Get Out Of Maine Before You Die Terribly

@omellet Aw, I forgot 'The Jaunt' was in Skeleton Crew. That's probably my favorite short story.

@Nicole Cliffe@facebook Eyes of the Dragon is a) great and b) part of the Randall Flagg / RF collection, you should read it. My memory of it being great is from about 23 years ago, though, fair warning.

On 'IT': Seriously, Guys, Get Out Of Maine Before You Die Terribly

I also read IT when I was about 10 or 11 years old. I went to the local library to find the book with the clapping monkey on the cover (which I later found out was Skeleton Crew, minor King at best), but couldn't find it. So instead I borrowed IT, and proceeded to read it over the course of a couple weeks. I read it way late into the night because the only other option was to drift off into horrifying nightmares.

I recently had a chat with a friend about the 'let's all have sex with Bev' part of the plot, and neither of us could come up with any coherent reason for its existence. I'd love to hear somebody ask Stephen King about that today.
