Stephen King on Stephenie Meyer:

"Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people. ... The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good."

Hee hee hee hee hee.

I do question the 'Jo Rowling is a terrific writer' bit because of the bloat of the last few books (among other things), but hee hee hee nonetheless.  And he says that James Patterson is terrible, too.  Heh.

More hilarity at fandom wank.
