It’s Halloween and we just posted our a super in-depth interview with Stephen King. “I have elevated the horror genre,” he said. “I’m not trying to be conceited or anything. Raymond Chandler elevated the detective genre. People who have done wonderful work really blur the line.”

Now we have a question for you: What is Stephen King’s single greatest book? Feel free to vote for an old school classic like Carrie or The Shining, a 1,000-plus page epic like It or The Stand, or one of his more recent works like 11/22/63 or Under The Dome. We’re going to count his novellas like Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, and remember if you vote for a Dark Tower book be sure to specify which one you’re selecting. Please only vote once and only for a single selection.
