#358. DREAMCATCHER, by Stephen King | The Author’s Shelf feat. Ryan Van Loan

August 1st, 2022

Craig and Kenn welcome Ryan Van Loan to the Author's Shelf series. Today's book is Dreamcatcher, the much-maligned 2001 sci-fi horror novel by Stephen King. So does it deserve all that maligning? In some ways, yes! In other ways, it's still an example of a master novelist at work. We'll hit a few of the highs and lows (including the 2003 movie adaptation) in this episode, so strap in!

 

Check out Ryan's website and his new book, The Memory in the Blood.
