Stephen King: Quitter
Revolution News

While pressing the flesh and pumping the masses for his Rose Red miniseries, Stephen King told the Los Angeles Times that he's shuttin' it down.

And by that, I mean his writing career. He said he has five more projects and another miniseries lined up, and that is all there is to that. The first two of those five are due out next year.

At the pace Stephen King writes, expect the remaining three to come out in the next 15 or 20 minutes. "You can either continue to go on, or say I I left when I was holding the ball, instead of it holding me."

Leave it to King to put a scary image in my head of a ball with hands!

Of course, lots of people have said they were going to retire and it doesn't take. Lots of people have never said anything about retiring and should. King isn't like the often-retiring Who or Garth Brooks, who said he'd retire but is working too much to get to it. King's never before announced he was retiring. Well, I say you have to start someplace.

What's he going to do now? Read?
