Kevin Quigley has written a good article that looks back on Stephen King's experiments with digital distribution. I'm a dedicated Stephen King reader, but Mr. Quigley brought up King works that I was unaware of (particularly the PC Games that King has been involved with). This fairly short article can be read in about an hour, but it is packed full of information. I believe it is priced right for the content that you get.

I question certain sources that Mr. Quigley cites. Specifically he cites the Giantbomb website as a review source, but he what he's actually citing is a wiki page on the product created by fans for Giantbomb, rather than the Giantbomb editorial team. It's a minor point, but it stood out to me. However, I really appreciated that Mr. Quigley has a "Works Cited" section that gives links to everything he quotes.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading Stephen King and wants to know more about some of his more obscure works. Based on this book, I'm going to buy the other Stephen King-related articles that Mr. Quigley has available for the Kindle.

Kevin Quigley has done and excellent job of finding topics related to Stephen King that have not been thoroughly discussed previously. This particular entry covers the electronic publishing history of the mastermind of horror. The expected entries are here from "Riding the Bullet" to "The Plant" but as with all of Quigley's chapbooks he goes much deeper. I learned about "The Mist" text-based adventure as well as the little publicized pre-release of "Umney's Last Case". Quigley does repeat himself sometimes, especially if you have read more than one of this Chapbooks.

I highly recommend this as a one sitting read to learn a little more about the history of Stephen King.

King has always been willing to experiment with various media, especially electronic -- years ago Riding the Bullet was the first eBook I ever bought. It was interesting to read about all the other things King has done, including some I'd never heard of. Quigley know his King!

This was very informative and well written. I am a avid reader of Stephen King and I learned quite a bit from this little article. Quigley seems to know his stuff.
