Stephen King made headlines a month ago when Hard Case Crime announced that they would be publishing his novel Joyland in June 2013.

In anticipation of Stephen King’s Joyland, I revisit his 2005 Hard Case Crime release, The Colorado Kid.  I don’t expect Joyland will be much like The Colorado Kid, but the latter is an intriguing little story that deserves to be evaluated on its own (idiosyncratic) merits.
But don’t just take my word for it. Go read the review, then take my word for it.
