What we're about

In the words of the author himself "Good books don't give up all their secrets at once", so join us to enjoy and discuss the works of the King!

Stephen King has written over 70 books, so we won't run out material any time soon. We will meet once a month, possibly every 2 months if we are tackling one of the really big tomes (I'm looking at you The Stand). Books will be set in advance with meetings held online for the forseeable future.

We can also delve into movie and TV adaptations, have movie nights with Netflix Party plus social events and quizzes.

I'm always open to ideas, so feel free to DM me with any suggestions!

I also co-organise the Horror Book Club, so if you are a fan of the genre in general, please do join us as well

And always remember - monsters are real!

The Dark Tower II - The Drawing of the Three (Pub Meetup)

Round Table

Time to continue our journey toward the Dark Tower with Book 2: The Drawing of the Three.

The meeting will probably last about 2-3 hours including drinks breaks.

Please look out for any great second hand versions, there are a load of great covers out there - do post them on here and/or bring them along to the meeting!

We will be meeting upstairs at the Round Table pub, food & drink will need to be ordered at the bar downstairs. Please do not bring in your own food or drink from outside as we rely on the pub letting us book the private room at no cost. The second session on Thursday will be on Zoom so if you are not able to attend in person in London then please RSVP to the second session.

Book Blurb follows:
Following Roland Deschain's confrontation with the man in black, the gunslinger descends from the Cyclopean Mountains to the Western Sea, where he is attacked by lobstrosities from the ocean. As his health wanes, he must travel the shoreline in search of three doors that will allow him access to Keystone Earth, from where he encounters people – including the drug-addict Eddie Dean, the schizophrenic Susannah Holmes, and the psychopathic Jack Mort – who are tied to his journey to the Dark Tower.

Christine (Pub Meetup)

Round Table

Back to the supernatural and a King classic - oh, how he loves his possessed motor vehicles! Though we won't specifically be discussing it, I would also recommend the John Carpenter film adaptation.

The meeting will probably last about 2-3 hours including drinks breaks.

Book blurb follows:
It’s love at first sight for high school student Arnie Cunningham when he and his best friend Dennis Guilder spot the dilapidated 1958 red-and-white Plymouth Fury for sale—dubbed “Christine” by its original cantankerous owner—rusting away on a front lawn of their suburban Pennsylvania neighborhood. Dennis knows that Arnie’s never had much luck in the looks or popularity department, or really taken an interest in owning a car . . . but Christine quickly changes all that. Arnie suddenly has the newfound confidence to stick up for himself, going as far as dating the most beautiful girl at Libertyville High—transfer student Leigh Cabot—even as a mysteriously restored Christine systematically and terrifyingly consumes every aspect of Arnie’s life. Dennis and Leigh soon realize that they must uncover the awful truth behind a car with a horrifying and murderous history. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and heaven help anyone who gets in Christine’s way…
