Stephen King To Launch His Newest Book, Hearts in Suspension At The University of On Maine November 7, 2016


Stephen King will launch his newest book, “Hearts in Suspension,” at the University of Maine on Nov. 7 with a reading of the book and discussion of his student days at UMaine during the turbulent Vietnam War era, followed by a conversation with his former classmates and friends who were at UMaine with him during this time and who co-authored the collection.

The event begins at 7 p.m. in the Collins Center for the Arts. Doors open at 6 p.m., with all ticket holders required to be in their seats by 6:45 p.m.

Tickets are free and available according to the following timeline: Members of the University of Maine campus community can register for one ticket each with a MaineCard at the CCA box office, during normal box office hours, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Oct. 12–14. Members of the public can register for two tickets per person online or at the CCA box office beginning Oct. 17.

All tickets are general admission and will be available for pick up, with photo ID, at the Collins Center for the Arts box office beginning at 1 p.m. Nov. 7. For further ticket information call 207-581-1755.

The 373-page “Hearts in Suspension,” published by the University of Maine Press, a division of UMaine’s Fogler Library, marks the 50th anniversary of King’s enrollment at UMaine — fall 1966. In the years that followed, the escalating Vietnam War and social unrest nationwide, especially on college and university campuses, had “a profound impact on students of the period and deeply influenced King’s development as a writer and a man,” according to the publisher on the book’s dust jacket.

The volume includes a reprint of “Hearts in Atlantis,” which tracks the “awakenings and heartbreak” of his fictional counterpart, Peter Riley, during his first year at UMaine. The novella is accompanied by King’s new essay, “Five to One, One in Five,” in which he reflects on his undergraduate years, creating “a revealing portrait of the artist as (a) young man and a ground-level tableau of this highly charged time.”

Along with photographs and documents of this era at UMaine are four installments of King’s student newspaper column, “King’s Garbage Truck.” The columns, reprinted for the first time, are described by the publisher as “lively examples of King’s damn-the-torpedoes style.” The entertaining and shrewd youthful perceptions “more than hint at a talent about to take its place in the American literary landscape.”

The book also features essays by 12 of King’s classmates and friends, including Jim Bishop, one of King’s college English teachers and the book’s editor. As a sophomore, King enrolled in a writing workshop taught by Bishop and English professor Burton Hatlen, where the young author’s talent was validated and where he connected with other student writers. The group of dedicated young writers continued to meet in the semesters following the transformational class.

In addition to Bishop’s essay and his introduction to the book, there are other personal narratives reflecting on the UMaine student experience by Michael Alpert, David Bright, Keith Carreiro, Harold Crosby, Sherry Dec, Bruce Holsapple, Frank Kadi, Diane McPherson, Larry Moskowitz, Jim H. Smith and Philip Thompson. Bright was the editor of the student newspaper, Crosby was King’s freshman roommate and Moskowitz was the head of the SDS chapter on campus. All were with King in the anti-war movement and bear witness to “a formative time in their lives and a defining moment in the country’s history,” according to the publisher on the book’s dust jacket.

“Hearts in Suspension” is dedicated in memory of Hatlen and two of King’s other inspirational professors at UMaine: Edward “Ted” Holmes and Edward “Sandy” Ives.

Copies of “Hearts in Suspension” will be for sale at the Collins Center following the event, and available at bookstores nationwide after Nov. 7. Copies may also be pre-ordered now from the University of Maine Press website:

The Carrie 40th Anniversary Is Bringing A Prom Celebration To Downtown Los Angeles On October 14, 2016


On November 3, 1976 Brian De Palma’s classic Stephen King adaptation was released to theaters and, next month, the Carrie 40th anniversary is getting celebrated in style in Downtown Los Angeles. Scream Factory is teaming with non-profit cancer support center weSPARK and the Theatre at The Ace Hotel for a special Carrie cast and crew reunion and screening of the brand-new restoration of the film, paired with a 1970s prom-themed party. The Carrie 40th anniversary prom will be held Friday, October 14th.

The Carrie 40th anniversary reunion is set to include stars Piper Laurie (The Hustler), Nancy Allen (Dressed to Kill, Robocop), William Katt (The Greatest American Hero), P.J. Soles (Halloween), editor Paul Hirsch (Star Wars: Episode IV) and Casting Director Harriett B. Helberg (The Jazz Singer). The cast will participate in a live Q&A moderated by Bryan Fuller.

“I want a recount! I can’t believe ‘Carrie’ is celebrating its 40th Anniversary!” says Allen. “This movie changed my career much like weSPARK has changed my life, and to bring these two worlds together for good, only adds to the specialness of this celebration.”

Halloween ComicFest Takes Place On October 29, 2016


As Halloween ComicFest moves into its fifth year, Diamond Comics Distributors is reporting record numbers of participants, and is planning to hand out over 2 million Halloween-themed comic books this October 29.

32 titles will be handed out including Marvel Comics’ Darth Vader: Doctor Aphra #1, and Spidey #1; DC Comics’ DC Super Hero Girls #1 and Scooby Apocalypse/Hanna-Barbera Sampler; Dark Horse Comics’ Harrow County #1; and IDW Publishing’s My Little Pony: The Haunted Dungeon as well as many more.

“We’re ecstatic about the 33% increase in total comics ordered from last year, which signals to us that Halloween ComicFest continues to grow as one the industry’s major annual events,” said Diamond spokesperson Michael Moccio. “What’s especially exciting is that the mini-comics increased almost 50% from last year. As an industry, turning the next generation into comic book fans is paramount and we’re happy we can contribute to that initiative by distributing the all-ages mini-comics that are perfect to give to trick-or-treaters. No doubt, this year’s increase in mini-comics orders is due to all the great properties featured, such as Archie Comics, Dynamite’s Grumpy Cat, VIZ Media’s Pokémon X&Y Pocket Comics and more.”

Halloween ComicFest takes place on October 29 at participating retailers.
