The tiny red curls make me think of rose bushes. This is beautiful. And for some reason I think it'd be an awesome abstract cover art for the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. :+fav:

Oh. thank you for saying that! I love the Dark Tower series. People really under-rate King as a serious writer, because I don't think the critics or most readers understand expressionism when they read it. Surrealism they usually appreciate to some degree, but not expressionism. His great trick is he literalizes everything. Dreams, nightmares, undercurrents. Zelazny did that some, and Crane further back, but not many authors do. Thank you so much. As you can tell, I rather admire King, so that's quite a compliment to me. :hug:

I admire him too, sometimes I wonder if his work will ever be considered literature. Critics seem to think that if you write horror (or fantasy, or sci-fi), you must be a sort of an idiot...


Anyway, you're welcome! :)

I know when he won a literary award in 2003 a lot of people complained he was "too popular." There is a strong prejudice against genre fiction, but most of the classics we had to read in school were genre fiction, just older genre fiction. The Brontes wrote romances, as did Jane Austen. Hemingway would probably be labelled "adventure" or something now. James Joyce would probably be "cult fiction." It's ridiculous and hypocritical. Genre fiction shouldn't be respected? Gosh, don't read Romeo and Juliet, then. I have ready plenty of "serious" lit, and if you ask me Dark Tower is in the "serious" category, and for that matter, so is Desperation. That was the one that first got my attention, actually. I realized that what he was doing was using the horror genre as a metaphor about the horrors and evils of life. Martha Grimes started writing mysteries that are really thematically about the mysteries of life itself, but nobody notices that, either.

I agree with you! :thumbsup:

Not to mention Hearts in Atlantis or The green mile. In all his works I read, the most maddening scaring things were always the real ones, like in Carrie and The Stand. Again, in The Shining the most terrifying thing is Jack's alcoholism. And so on... :)
