Quote of the Day

"Stephen King compared the Mormon author to JK Rowling, saying that both authors were "speaking directly to young people". "The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good," he told an interviewer from USA Weekend."

In bizarro opposite land, Time magazine reports this week that one out of every seven books sold last week was written by Stephenie Meyer.

    I had to look up who Stephenie Meyer was because I had no clue. In Wikipedia it says she came up with her idea for the novel in 2003 after she awoke from a drea.

    A dream about BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER I'm betting. Wow this whole book idea wreaks of Buffy.

  2. JK Rowling is pretty good at taking a Neil Gaiman work and drawing it out then passing it off as her own.
