He is the one author in my life where I’ve read everything of his when it came out. I got to meet him and work with him when we were shooting Creepshow 2. He was writing a book then, and he would crumple up pages he was writing, and throw them away. I went into his trailer, took a piece out of the trash and kept it. And then I realised it was Misery! Years later I would work on the movie version of that book, and I showed him the old piece of paper that I took. It was kind of fun to be that kid and go, “Ooh, he’s writing something!”
