Because I am here now with the one and old Stephen king, the master of horror. Here to tell us abhis latest book, "The bazaar of bad dreams." I'm beyond excited to be sitting with the master here. Because, you know, I have told you, I won't say I'm your number one fan. We know how that goes in your stories. I'm one of your biggest fan zblps thank you for letting me scare the devil out of you. Penny wise the clown, I'm never going the totally forgive you for that. The thing about pen any wise was I caught a whole generation with the miniseries, ABC. Tim curry as penny wise scarred a whole generation of people. I just love it. I know, I told you, you scared me. You said, good. This book is incredible. It's a series of short stories. I love how your describe. You're a novelist by trade. You say shorter stories can be invigorate ppg like a waltz with a stranger you'll never see again. Edgar Allen Poe said the ideal short story, the writer reads it in one sitting and the read reads it in one sitting pip think, you take a piece of short fiction and you can concentrate things, emotions, in that. I'm an emotional writer. I want to be confrontational. I want you to be mine. While I have that. So -- and -- with a short story, it's like -- distilling everything into a really potent mix. I love that. You have obviously so many classics. To many to name. Let's name them. Why not? Why do you think your stories have stood the test of time? You can go back and reread and are captivated like the first time. A lot of times, reads came to me in their teens or 0s. The books had a tendency to make an impression. I think a lot of times, it was a question of, they got scared to death. And then they wanted more. So it is like the roller coaster. The they stand the test of time, that's a great thing. Not if they do. They do. Oh, Amy. And 11-2-63, my favorite book of all time. I have agreed to let you interview me. We're going to do a reverse interview. Are you ready? Was the New York mar thin? Ments it was awesome. Because I ran three miles of it. That's it. I wasn't a full marathoner. The B part of that question, did you gate blue blanket? I did not. Like I said. I kind of cheated. Well, three miles is three miles. What scared you when you were a kid? Oh, you. That would be the number one thing. Go me. You definitely. What in particular? Anything supernatural. That's what you're good at. You're always -- there are no lox for the devil or the supernatural. You can't lock out a car that would eat you. You had so in creative ways to scare us that we couldn't protect ourselves from. A lot of this stuff is a time capsule thing. You read it in the daytime. You say okay. And then I get you at night. When I couldn't put an appendage out of the sheets. I was so afraid it would be chopped off. Stephen king. Thank you. Amy robach, thank you. Pick one up. It's out tomorrow. Coming up, we have Alanis
