Format: Paperback
Stephen King's "Storm of the Century" screenplay is further proof, if anyone doubts it, that he's not only adept at writing a horror story that gives one the creeps, but that he is not limited to writing in one format.
Most novelists are content with sticking to one literary branch, letting other writers adapt their work to screenplay form. Tom Clancy and John Grisham sell the film rights to producers such as Mace Neufeld and screenwriters (Donald Stewart and John Milius, for instance) rework their basic plots into adapted screenplays. King, too, has allowed others to adapt his works for Hollywood, but he has also learned the demanding format of the screenplay and written quite a few (Creepshow, Silver Bullet, and The Stand, just to name a few).
For the ABC-TV miniseries "Storm of the Century," King conjured up one of his darkest tales yet. As a severe winter storm of unprecedented fury approaches Maine's Little Tall Island, Martha Clarendon is murdered in an unspeakably violent manner. But instead of fleeing the scene of the crime as most killers do, Andre Linoge parks himself on his victim's easy chair and waits, his silver-wolf-head's cane in his hands, for the authorities to pick him up.
But with Linoge's arrest, Little Tall Island's woes do not end; they are only beginning. For Linoge is one of those not-quite-human fiends Stephen King often creates to create havoc in small Maine communities like Little Tall Island, Derry, Jerusalem's Lot, and Castle Rock. He can destroy people simply by revealing their darkest secrets and manipulating them from afar. And by the time the Storm of the Century passes, the citizens of Little Tall Island will be horrified when they discover the meaning of Linoge's simple request: "Give me what I want, and I'll go away.

I bought this book a few months ago not realizing it was a screenplay. I tried to read it then, but lost interest, because it was a screenplay. I picked it up again last night and just now put it down! Very well written. Once you get past the fact that it is a screenplay you get totally lost in the characters. The ending was surprising, because I thought the townspeople would make a different choice. King seems to know how people would react to certain situations. We all like to think we are basically good, but deep down we are selfish. This isn't up there with THE SHINING or 'SALEM's LOT, but it is very well written, and I highly recommend it.

This is the first screenplay that I read of S.King., it is so well written that you can imagine it as if you were actually seen the movie. The story is so good that it keeps you interested at all times, without a clue about what is going to happen at the end.

Format: Paperback
In the summer of 1935, hundreds of World War 1 Veterans were in the Florida Keys to build the bridges linking the islands to the mainland.
Many were curious and most unafraid when they heard a hurricane was coming. What was some wind and rain compared to bullets? Alas the Labor Day hurricane was perhaps the most powerful to ever assualt the U.S. mainland, moving across the Keys with 200-mph winds and a 20-foot storm surge.
More than 400 people died, including many of the verterans in their makeshift work camps. Drye's well-researched narrative provides not only an hour-by-hour account of the storm track, but also chronicles the political fallout in it's aftermath.
Note: This refers to the version by Willie Drye.

Format: Paperback
Author Stephen King's Storm Of The Century, started out as a novel, then morphed into an ABC television mini series, and then ended up as a book after all. I must say right off the bat that I liked the television movie very much...As a massive snow storm heads for the town of Little Tall island, and as the residents start to prepare, one of the town's citizens is murdered by a mysterious stranger. Even as the town constable. Mike Anderson, arrives to take one Andre`Linoge` into custody, the visitor makes a proposition. He promises to leave as quickly as he came, if the townspeople give him the one thing he wants from them. As a t.v. movie, the story worked because of its cast and high production values, the book works too--just not quite as well. First, though, I liked reading the story in its original script format, beause of my film background and all. There's nothing like reading a cool script, even if you have already seen the film. However, I have to say that, I was a bit disappointed in the book version.
As much as the story works, I was expecting King to include scenes that did not make it into the finished film, as is the case with most fare created for film, there is always stuff that is cut out. This is to accomodate time constraints and all that. Since the DVD release of the film contains no deleted material, I thought perhaps the screenplay would have had some of that. After all, when movies are adapted in novel form, there are no limits, bcause time and other factors are eliminated In his introduction on page Xi King makes the point that he wrote "Storm" the same way he would if it were a novel. I just didn't "read" the script that way. It felt like I was reading it the way it was written--as a script.
