There's a lot of made-for-TV-stuff of his that isn't so bad so long as you keep the low budget in mind.
Yea I second what you said... personally I have trouble reading a page or two of Kings novels. His style just doesn't fit me. His stories are good. And the movies Shining and Carrie were good. I do not know how much creative control he has over the releases... but many writers do have a strong say. Little baffling.
