...Stephen King On The Horror-Mood...

Excerpted from the diary that "Archaic" Al Hewetson kept while he was "Editor In Chief" at Skywald is the following "macabre" missive... ...Enjoy...

November 30, 1973

A fellow by the name of Stephen King, evidently a would-be horror writer, did a piece in Writer's Digest about the horror market... He was very kind to Skywald, noting that we were "the most vital in the field - constantly moving ahead, breaking new ground, using consistently innovative stories - a strong bullpen staff..." What an astute guy! I should drop him a line and offer him work as a scriptwriter... He's probably a starving young writer if he's trying to break into the horror market!
