It's Stephen King's birthday! Who is your favorite character from one of his books?
How did that escape my notice?
It's difficult to narrow down, but among my favorites are Paul Sheldon a.k.a. the modern-day Scheherezade from Misery, Nick Andros from The Stand, definitely Carrie White from Carrie, Eddie Kapsbrak from IT, and N from N - I love his short stories. And on that subject, while the story wasn't one of the ones I like best, I liked Emily from The Gingerbread Girl in a similar vein to Paul.
Wholeheartedly, here's to Stephen King!
