With your hosts Hans Lilja of Lilja's Library and Lou Sytsma.

Welcome to Episode 34 of The Stephen King Podcast!

We're Back! After a summer hiatus we return with a KING Sized Episode and special returning guest - writer and Stephen King expert - Bev Vincent.

We have a lot of Stephen King news covering movies, tv series, stage, and of course books.

Bev joins us to talk about Haven as we talk about our thoughts on the series past seasons and the upcoming Season 5. Bev shares what he did on his summer vacation which included a set visit to Haven.

Then Bev sticks around and we compare notes on the current season of Under The Dome.

Before Bev leaves us, he sets our old school King horror taste buds salivating with his nonspoilery thoughts on King's next book - Revival - which he just finished reading. To say we are left chomping at the bit to get our hands on this is a vast understatement.

We hope you enjoy this episode and, as usual, we want to hear from you.

More details about the book:

SYNOPSIS

Few horror films in the history of television can boast the deadly seriousness, inspired casting, indelible images and lingering impact of Salem’s Lot. Tobe Hooper’s adaptation of Stephen King’s 1975 novel about vampires that infest a small Maine town was first broadcast in November 1979.

The three-hour film featured unforgettable performances by an array of stars — James Mason, David Soul, Lew Ayres, Bonnie Bedelia — along with one of the most truly terrifying monsters in the history of movies: the feral vampire Mr Barlow played by Reggie Nalder.

This book documents the gestation and production of the film. There are reminiscences from cast and crew, including new and exclusive interviews with Tobe Hooper, David Soul, cinematographer Jules Brenner and producer Richard Kobritz; dozens of images, including many never before published behind-the-scenes production stills; deleted scenes from the original teleplay; foreign posters and artwork inspired by the film; photographs of Ferndale, California, where the exteriors ofSalem’s Lot were filmed; and much, much more.

Is Golden Years the real deal or Fool's Gold? Or a mix of both? Listen to what we have to say. (Note - this segment runs in full SPOILER mode so if you have not seen the series as of yet and plan to do so, you may want to save this for later listening.)

Oh and we also announce the Audio Widget Contest Winner....
