Getting in the October spirit?

1. What book frightened you as a young person?
I read a whole bunch of Stephen King as a kid, starting far too young, and I think he is super underrated because the most popular works aren't his best. Desperation was legitimately terrifying and so good. Still in print. Look it up!

2. If you had to become a 'living book' (i.e. able to recite the contents of a book cover to cover upon request – reference Fahrenheit 451), what book would it be?
City of Quartz.

3. What movie or TV show scared you as a kid?
It was basically my worst nightmare. Clearly I'm not thrilled that it was recreated this year.

4. What movie (scary or otherwise) will you never ever watch?
The 2017 It. Bonus answers: It Follows (not because of the name), and the entire Saw franchise.

5. Do you have any phobias?
Me and water don't really get along, so maybe don't take me swimming.

I read a lot of Stephen King as a kid, too. I remember thinking for a time that he was the "best author ever."

Nice. I definitely still use his writing as a reference point for other fiction authors.

Nice. What course? I took at least two courses that used it in college.

It was in a course called "The American City". I haven't taught it in years but it's something I'd love to get back to at some point. What courses did you read it in?
