Besides The Stand, I've never actually read anything by King - but I think I may have to remedy that by trying his lastest book, Cell. Here's the blurb that caught my eye:
From Publisher's Weekly:
What if a pulse sent out through cell phones turned every person using one of them into a zombie-like killing machine?
My knee jerk reaction was, "So, it's non-fiction and takes place in Southern California?"
Sometimes I think it should be illegal to be such a smart ass.
