He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books.

Engage @ Pulp Speed

"But then, King has always produced at pulp speed. "Nov.22, 2007-March 14, 2009" proclaims the final page of Under the Dome; that's 1100 pages in 480 days...writing flat-out keeps him close to his story, close to his source. It seems to magnetize his imagination: by the final third of this novel King is effortlessly drawing in T.S. Eliot and the Book of Revelation, the patient etherized upon the table and the Star Wormwood."  - New York Times Book Review 11/8/09

That's speed.  King-sized.
