Dad’s Old College Mate
This is the second appearance Stephen King makes on this list, but this one is a bit cooler if you ask us. In this story, this person’s dad actually knew the author – he went to school with him. I guess it’s not that unlikely, considering he attended the University of Maine. It still makes for a pretty funny story.
According to this person, his dad said King was “really odd” (his words, not ours). For some reason, we don’t find his father’s account surprising. I mean, in order for you to write those types of novels, you have to be a bit odd. He’s probably a very interesting guy, with a big imagination, but also a bit odd.
