Praise for Magistrale's Hollywood's Stephen King:

'A great read, insightful and intelligent Tony has helped me improve my reputation from an ink-stained wretch popular novelist to an ink-stained wretch popular novelist with occasional flashes of muddy insight.' - Stephen King

'This book is a useful elucidation of King's work through the skewed lens of Hollywood.' - Publishers Weekly Review

'Magistrale digs deeper than mere plots, excavating compelling and disturbing themes in the gothic oeuvre of the master storyteller; he deserves accolades for bricking a foundational context for interpreting the enduring visions of King.' - Choice
