The 17 Most Influential Burgers of All Time

TIME interviewed burger historians and experts to determine which patties made the biggest impact on the burger industry—and the world at large. Check out the 17 most influential burgers of all time HERE.

The In-N-Out Burger – Whereas McDonald’s focused on fast, In-N-Out focused on food—its signature burger, which debuted in 1948, was made from locally sourced ground beef and fresh vegetables. That approach may have prevented In-N-Out’s expansion (it has just 294 locations today, compared with McDonald’s 34,000-plus), but it certainly hasn’t dampened foodie enthusiasm: the In-N-Out burger routinely tops best-of burger lists, and has inspired the launch of other higher-end fast food chains, such as Five Guys.

The 25 Best Inventions of 2013

bestinventions

What makes an invention great? Sometimes it solves a problem you didn’t think could be solved. Skyscrapers can’t turn invisible. Pens can’t write in midair. Paraplegics can’t walk. Except now they can. And sometimes an invention solves a problem you didn’t know you had. Maybe you didn’t realize you needed to eat a doughnut and a croissant at the same time, or resurrect an extinct frog, or turn your entire body into a living password. Now you do. Check out TIME’s list of the best things that were invented in 2013.

Stephen King: 10 More Books He Should Write Sequels To

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 5.06.02 PM

In 1977, Stephen King already an established horror writer with works like Carrie and Salem’s Lot, saw the publication of The Shining, a wonderfully chilling tale about the terrors that are visited upon a family in a remote mountainside resort. The book got great reviews, was turned into a movie and mini-series, and cemented King’s reputation as a master of the genre.

1a-dr-sleep-art-gd5ojt3v-10924-kingbk-lf

A (very long) 36 years later, King has returned to the terrifying world of The Shining in a highly-anticipated sequel, Doctor Sleep. The novel revisits Danny Torrance — the psychically-gifted five-year-old who went up against the ghostly residents of the Overlook Hotel  is now a middle-aged orderly in a nursing home.  Trouble comes calling in the form of a traveling clan of psychic, vampiric creatures — it’s the sort of scary tale that’ll leave us sleeping with the lights on at night and waxing nostalgic for its predecessor come dawn.

As Jud Crandall advised in Pet Sematary, “Sometimes dead is better,” but sometimes a story’s just too good to leave buried. With that in mind, TIME suggests 10 King classics just waiting for a sequel. Check out the list HERE.

Fifteen Funkiest Ice Cream Flavors On Earth

A Beginner’s Guide to: Neil Gaiman

Gaiman-Author-sm-c-by-Kimberly-Butler

For fans of the author Neil Gaiman, the idea of needing a beginner’s guide may sound ridiculous: he’s been a cult hero for decades. His novels, short stories, and comic books have won all kinds of awards and prizes. But, in the manner of other genre icons who amassed a specific group of fans prior to mainstream success, his omnipresence might seem sudden to many others.

He has several books coming out over the next few weeks —  Unnatural Creatures: Stories Selected by Neil Gaiman (which came out earlier this week, on April 23), Make Good Art (May 14), How to Talk to Girls at Parties (May 18) and The Ocean at the End of the Lane (June 18). A BBC radio-play adaptation of his novel Neverwhere premiered in March. And there’s more coming.

So, to clear up any confusion about this prolific author, TIME provided this starter guide for Neil Gaiman.
