Saying that he can sing is a stretch.
..just disgusting.

I've read this book several times and always enjoy it. It's an oldy but a goody.

Your book looks interesting.
I was too young to see the Exorcist at the theater. My mother forbade it. She did not, however, restrict my visits to the library in any way so I read it around the same age you did, @KSM. YES IT WAS A LOOPHOLE AND I TOOK IT! I also read Jaws. We lived half a block from the town library and I went there and got stacks of books frequently.

If you enjoyed the book there's an interesting podcast about the boy that was the actual child/experiences The Exorcist was based on @KSM @Annie .https://www.americanhauntingspodcast.com/pods/haunted-st-louis-episode-16-the-st-louis-exorcism-pt-1
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Just finished reading my  second book of 2021. Plans to read a book a week have gone horribly awry. This novel is a quick and absorbing story. King can sometimes be the king of digression, but not in this burning flipper. I started rationing pages read at one sitting because I wanted it to last. That's high praise in my book ... about his book.

I've read the cover. Think I'll read the book.

Illustrated chicks are so fucking hot! Especially on illustrated cars!

That looks like the cover on a 1950s-60s John D. MacDonald novel.

Here's another. Frowny faces so you know how serious things are, but no car.

It seems Later is very pro-cleavage.  8)

In case you have not run across this yet, KSM, this is the illustrated thumbnail index page for Hard Case Crime's book catalog, listed in newest to oldest, in descending order. The femme fatale archetype is prevalent!

A multitude of attractive women in that John D. McDonald  / classic pulp style Juan referenced. Some of these covers just slap the hell out of me.  All the covers are original artwork with the publication of the HCC book, though some might appear to be reprinted vintage.

Heavens to Betsy!

I misspelled John D. MacDonald's name as McDonald.

Damn it.

You were no mere facilitator of burgers, John.

I regret the error.  :(
