How did king Stephen die?
Liber Eliensis 371, ed. E.O. Blake Camden Society, 3rd ser., xcii, 1962) writes that he died of dysentery. The symptoms, stomach disorders, may have been cramps but a contemporary, Gervase of Canterbury, describes internal bleeding. These appear to be classic dystentery symptoms. Causes of dystentery are poor hygiene and contaminated food and water. Stephen, perhaps up to a week before the onset of symptoms, would have ingested the dystentery bacteria that proceeded to attack his intestal lining. Had he lived today, modern medical procedures would have saved him. Liber Eliensis 371, ed. E.O. Blake Camden Society, 3rd ser., xcii, 1962) writes that he died of dysentery.

Stephen King is the most AMAZING horror movie/book writer ever! I have read all but 3 of his novels, and I love his short stories! He wrote "Carrie" (his first novel) and it became a movie in 1979, with a second one in 1999. From what I read, he is also a director. He wrote sleepwalkers, as well as …directed the movie. He wrote: Sleepwalkers cell Carrie everythings eventual: 14 dark tales. (1408 became a movie out of there!) Pet sematary the shining and many many more i don't feel like writing all of them. (there are over 30) he also writes poetry, which inspires me more, because his poetry is interesting. His wife Tabitha also writes novels, she has written 3 so far, and I read "Burning Candles" which she did with Michael Dowell in the 1990s. His son also writes novels. he has 2 out sofar. Stephen king is amazing! ( Full Answer )
He has three homes, one in Bangor and one in Lovell, both in Maine, and a mansion in Sarasota, Florida.
I get my ideas from everywhere. But what all of my ideas boil downto is seeing maybe one thing, but in a lot of cases it's seeing twothings and having them come together in some new and interestingway, and then adding the question 'What if?' 'What if' is alwaysthe key question. http://stephenking.co…m/index.html ( Full Answer )

Stephen Kin is famous for writing horror and suspense novels. Someof his most popular novels include The Green Mile, Carrie and PetCemetery.
Stephen King does not have a public email. However, a person canjoin his website and write on his message board. A person can alsosend fanmail to his publishing company.
It all depends on your own personal taste, of course. My personal favourites are The Stand, Desperation and It, although, honestly the only one I have read that I didn't enjoy particularly was Dreamcatcher. The Dark Tower series is fantastic as well, but it is my personal opinion.

Casual attire. Mainly clothes you'd go on a walk wearing. Jeans, a t-shirt, and some tennis shoes.
It depends on which one, and what makes you scared. I wouldn't recommend any of them to children. If you want to start with one that is on the less-scary side and see for yourself, try The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon .
Pennywise the Dancing Clown, aka Bob Gray, was a very old entity that crash-landed on the area where eventually Derry, Maine, would be built, and it slept and fed on human fears and misery. The clown was but one of the shapes he adopted to terrify and kill people. Usually his shapes were tailored to… terrify specific people. The clown form appeared to be a more "generic" shape, which helped him to both entice and cause fear in his victims (like Georgie Dembrough). ( Full Answer )

His Quote:. "I don't see myself as God's stenographer. As someone who believes in God, believes that God is a logical out growth of the fact that life fits together as well as it does, but that doesn't mean that we know God's mind... There's been a lot of criticism of the book where they say the Go…d stuff really turns them off. I'm thinking to myself that these guys have no problems with vampires, demons, golems, werewolves and you name it. If you try to bring in a God who can take sardines and crackers and turn it into loaves and fishes, then these people have a problem. I say to myself, if you have a real problem then I'm doing what a novel of suspense and horror is supposed to do, which is to just scratch below the surface and sought of rub your nerves the wrong way.".

According to an anecdote in his nonfiction book On Writing , he was inspired to write the story that became Carrie after finding a used feminine hygiene product while cleaning up a woman's bathroom during a summer job.. To continue the story, his wife (fellow author Tabitha King) fished the firs…t draft of the first chapter out of the garbage, and convinced Stephen to continue working on it.

Something i just recently read suggested that Stephen King apeared in IT as a bartender but idk if taht is true because i dnt remember a bartender
No. But he's NOT Catholic either. Stephen King was raised in the Methodist faith. But the rest of the stuff you wrote is pretty accurate. He "does not regularly attend Mass". And Mr. King does not consider "himself to be religious, and not in the sense that he attends church and preachers." N…o. Stephen King is Catholic, but does not regularly attend Mass.

haha heck no its not scary at all its about this women kidnaps this famous writer when he got in a car wreck and she is obsessed with him and wont let him go she breaks his legs and everything i think that's the least scary movie that Stephen kings wrote it don't have no monsters scary faces or noth…in like that it don't even show blood but u should watch it its a good movie Answer I think Misery is perhaps the scariest Stephen King novel. Last time I read this novel, my hands were shaking with fear during many of the chapters. It's SO suspenseful. The Annie Wilkes character (played by Kathy Bates in the movie) is so terrifying. The movie is also brilliant, although I think the book is scarier. The book is a lot gorier than the movie, too. In the movie, she only clubs his foot until she breaks all the bones, while in the book, she actually CHOPS HIS FOOT OFF WITH A FREAKING AXE! I'm sorry, but if you don't think that's scary, then there's something wrong with you. ( Full Answer )
He doesn't. Jake pushes him out of the way, and is killed himself (in The Dark Tower's last installment).
In short, yes. Stephen King makes an appearance in all of his films. Whether it is a cameo by voice or physical appearance he is in them. Just like Stan Lee is in all of his movies. You'd have to look to spot him though, if you aren't looking for him you might miss him, it is usually just seconds.
i would say the two cleanest are firestarter and the girl who loved tom Gordon
I believe the term is "alive" and yes, he is 63 years old and still writing.
Some of Stephen King's most notable quotes are, "People want to know why I do this, why I write such gross stuff. I like to tell them I have the heart of a small boy, and I keep it in a jar on my desk." "I am the literary equivalent of a Big Mac and fries." "I've killed enough of the world's t…rees." "Each life makes its own imitation of immortality." "If you don't have the time to read, you don't have the time or the tools to write." ( Full Answer )
The book is about an awful spirit who can change shapes to be whatever you are afraid of. So Georgie the first charachter to die, was afraid of monsters so "It" was a Clown that gave Georgie a balloon and then told him to reach down and get his toy paper boat. "It" then changes to an incredebly stro…ng monster and rips off his arm. Georgie bleeds to death. ( Full Answer )
well his target is to slightly frighten the audience(viewers and readers), but at the same time he wants them to be entertained and well that's just my opinion
I recommend It, Pet Semetary, and The Green Mile. Or if your into shorter stories, Night Shift
Democratic. He's very politically active, even though it's a scary thought. His characters are scary, but he's actually a very intelligent and open person.
If this was multiple choice, it may be answerable. Stephen King may have been prolific but almost all novels in human history have not been written by him.
Stephen King is important because unlike most commercial fiction writers, he has writing talent...and great ideas. He's most famous because of those ideas. Stephen King steps beyond the boundaries of most fiction writers. He crawls into the dark spaces where no one else is bold enough to reach. Who …else but Stephen King could write a story about a man trapped inside a locked port-o-potty, covered in excrement after the thing was kicked over by the wicked little man who put the guy in there? Or the plane that traveled through a time warp; Stephen King showed us what happens to tomorrow when the day turns into today. The langoliers eat it up! What about the evil car? The rapid dog? The telekinetic prom queen? Most of his work has been turned into movies because of the ideas. Hollywood is always hunting for the next great idea. So are publishers and editors, for that matter. Good ideas make money. It doesn't matter how well you write, if your idea stinks, no one is going to read the story. Stephen King writes all his tales with one setting: Maine. This shows consistency. It's actually his trademark--just about everything he has ever written, and probably ever will write is set in Maine. Derry, Maine to be exact. Having that kind of consistency inspires recognition. If someone turned on a movie and didn't know it was based on a story by Stephen King...all he/she'd have to do is hear someone say "Derry" and he/she'd know. And most important...it's all in the name. It's easy to remember "Stephen King." There aren't too many syllables to say in that name. And because he's so popular one could call him simply "The King." He's The King of horror, of making you wish you'd left the lights on, of giving you chills and also making you laugh with his bitter humor and often downright profane word choice. Sometimes, those four-letter words that Stephen King is not too shy to type could make a gal blush. Stephen King is important because just about anyone can read him. His writing is easy, yet it is good writing. Good grammar, good expressions, good word choice. And above all: the story line is exceptional. The story--the idea--is what keeps you up at night flipping the pages. His ideas have brought money to lots of people in the entertainment industry, and his ideas have provided lots of other people with good stories, great movies, and memorable characters. Because who could forget Delores Claiborne, or Paul EdgeComb (on the Green Mile)? These characters stick in your mind, for their beauty, and their ugliness, and all the crap they had to endure in one of Stephen King's crazy stories. ( Full Answer )
Read all of his books and he'll teach you how to write. Write a manuscript, get it published, make a lot of money. There you go, that's his reward. If you mean "Awards" and not "Rewards" then you stated the question wrong.
He studied English at the University of Maine, graduating in 1970 with a Bachelor of Science in English.
The main conflict is man vs. the supernatural, in this case it is the kids vs. Pennywise the clown. This movie is actually not that popular anymore.
Yes and no. His terse sentences, everyday language and blue-collar characters are all tools in the "realist" writer's toolbox. This technique is used to ground the fantastic element in his work and achieve the suspension of disbelief in the reader - this is called "achieving verisimilitude." The… style then, because of the use of the fantastic, or romantic, in a realistic setting would be labeled by chin-stroking literary types as from within the genre of "magical realism." His major theme from his Dark tower series, that has retro-actively been applied to his entire ouvre, is that subjective belief /is/ reality. Look at our modern money-system an example of this premiss - numbers on a computer screen representing colored paper that is backed by nothing of value. But our belief works like crazy-glue and all kinds of rough deeds are done out of greed for this magic paper. It's realism to write about money and it's people. So, to conclude, if you hear tittering from a sewer grate, as you walk home from work one moonless evening, it's best to say out loud "It's only a rat. There's no such thing as demon sewer clowns." Or is there? ( Full Answer )
From his head. King's pen name for 6 novels was Richard Bachman, aka his 'Dark Half', also a novel by King. He's a lot of different people caught in one body, like we all are, only he knows how to decipher them MUCH better than the everyday human. His modus operandi is Emotions, and how to describe …them in explicit detail, which makes him so popular. When Stephen sees a man walking down the street he doesn't think about who the man is, but what the man does and what he's capable of. He thinks on and on, which makes him write on.... and on....and on, which is also what makes his so popular. ( Full Answer )

Danny used his mental abilities to save his mother and Dick Hallorann.

Stephen King paid for the renovation and expansion of the public library in Bangor, Maine. He also built a state of the art Little League stadium there, as well as a bandstand in the park. He is also active in campaigns to promote literacy and find publishers for struggling writers.
He has joked about this by saying that some people pay a therapistto talk about their fears but he writes about them and other peoplepay him to read about them.
The latest book currently available by Stephen King is The Dark Tower- The Wind through the Keyhole. First edition was released in April 2012 in various formats, including Hardcover and audio.
Not yet. I'm writing but I'm writing at a much slower pace thanpreviously and I think that if I come up with something really,really good, I would be perfectly willing to publish it becausethat still feels like the final act of the creative process,publishing it so people can read it and you can get… feedback andpeople can talk about it with each other and with you, the writer,but the force of my invention has slowed down a lot over the yearsand that's as it should be. I'm not a kid of 25 anymore and I'm nota young middle-aged man of 35 anymore-I have grandchildren and Ihave a lot of things to do besides writing and that in and ofitself is a wonderful thing but writing is still a big, importantpart of my life and of everyday. http://stephenking.com/index.html ( Full Answer )
The answer to that is fairly simple-there was nothing else I wasmade to do. I was made to write stories and I love to writestories. That's why I do it. I really can't imagine doing anythingelse and I can't imagine not doing what I do. http://stephenking.com/index.html
No. But Frank Darabont's "The Shawshank Redemption," an adaptationof a 1982 story by King, was nominated as Best Picture of 1994.
