Carrie, 50 Years Today!

Posted: April 4, 2024, 09:02
Today we celebrate that it’s 50 years since Carrie was released and King became a published author. Today he has published a total of 88 books during 50 years. That is an average of 1,76 books a year, every year, for 50 years. Very impressive if you ask me.

Personally, I want to take this opportunity to thank Steve for all the stories and hopefully there are many more to come. Thanks Steve and congratulations on 50 great years!

Now something might be thinking "Didn't I read somewhere that Carrie was released on April 5, 1974?". Well, you might. Some online sources list the release date for the book as April 5th, others as April 4th. It’s up to each and every one to decide what date you want to see as the release date (it’s hard to know for sure with such an old book) but what makes me believe that April 4 is the correct date is that King himself says so in the invitation to the book's 25th anniversary party.
