Maine’s master of nightmares, Stephen King, is 70 years old today.  Happy birthday! It’s a popular day for literary birthdays, apparently.

The author has penned such well-known titles as Carrie, Pet Sematary, The Shining, The Talisman, Misery and, of course, It, which currently is tearing up the box office.

Check out this piece written by the Bangor Daily News for the birthday milestone (it even got King’s seal of approval; he tweeted the story out earlier today).
