'NYT' Hails Stephen King -- As He Boosts MoveOn.org

NEW YORK Sometimes -- okay, nearly always -- timing is everything. So it seemed for the liberal political action group MoveOn.org today. Just hours after his latest book got a rare rave in The New York Times, horror novelist Stephen King emailed a big election year pitch for MoveOn.

You'd almost think it was a liberal conspiracy.

"If I know anything, I know scary," King emailed. "And giving this president and this out-of-control Congress two more years to screw up our future is downright terrifying. Thankfully, this national nightmare is one we can end withliterallya wake up call.

"My friends at MoveOn.org Political Action are organizing pre-Halloween phone parties this weekend, Oct. 28th & 29th....And since it's almost Halloween, we'll celebrate with an optional costume contest, some pumpkin carving (I'll be making a Jack-Abramoff-O'-Lantern) andof courseplenty of candy."

Janet Maslin in the Times called King's new Scribner's book, "Lisey's Story," a "tender, intimate book that makes an epic interior journey without covering much physical terrain." She considers it "haunting even by Mr. King's standards."

2. He and John Grisham did a fund raiser for Jim Webb
which was pretty funny after George Allen has been dis'ing Webb as a "Fiction Writer".
