Hey there, interested in checking out some Stephen King. I read the first book in the Dark Tower series and found it interesting but a bit psychedelic for me by the ending. I also read his short story collection - Full Dark, No Stars, which was fairly enjoyable but not very memorable. Lately I've been pretty taken by the Gothic Romance genre and the writing tends to be (obviously) quite "high-brow". I have to admit I enjoy this style (Tolkien, Robert Jordan, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Edith Wharton, Bram Stoker, even Bret Easton Ellis...) and I find Stephen King's writing somewhat "low brow" - meaning the characters are often disadvantaged, abused, with slang-based dialogue etc... Somewhat like the characters that Rob Zombie loves making movies about... This could just be my limited exposure to King's writing? I hope I'm not coming off as a total douche... I suppose maybe my enjoyment of what I consider "high brow" literature is a bit of aspirational porn for me. I guess I'm wondering: has Stephen King written any white collar horror lol? Secondary question - I thoroughly enjoy a good eerie New England forest setting. I have yet to read any Washington Irving although I intend to. Any other suggestions in a similar style?
