I had an anniversary reaction and found myself wanting to read "The Stand" again. We read it for PLC at CU in the fall of 1985, and somehow when this fall rolled around I craved it again. It's nearly as good this time around as it was the first. I don't like horror as a rule, and can't take all of his writing, but Mr. King can weave a web and tell a story like no one else.
"How to be Sick" is a dense book, one I'll probably end up buying for myself. It has been incredibly useful to me. I'd rank it up there with "Full Catastrophe Living" and "Whole Child/Whole Parent" for it's value and influence on me.
