* No problem if you have to drop out but please let me know. No cards and no communication will result in a neutral iTrader.

* Each card should be sent in its own plastic sleeve.

* INTERNATIONAL participants -Please send $2 US.

*Remember to include your user name and swap name on the back of the ATC and the back flap of the envelope so the recipients can leave REP points. Remember to leave me (mcgillisj) the host an iTrader when you receive your cards which is most appreciated. It also lets me know your cards arrived safely.

* Please send me a PM when you need my address.

* Host cards are not at all required to play, but if you decided to send one, I would lovingly add it to my collection.

Who wants to play?

I love Steven King and Pennywise is my favorite

My town does this sort of scavenger hunt where we paint and hide rocks for each other to find. I started painting this rock to hide it in town, but I couldn't part with it... I added a few things and now its an ornament that will probably hang on my Christmas tree.

I have trouble, too, CharmingB. I use "go advanced", then click on the postcard icon and insert the link of my image. But I can't control the size.

Here's a card created by DocGriffon, traded to me a couple of years ago. It's from the Stephen King short story "I am the Doorway".

My son and I went to see "IT" last week...so good! Lots of jumpy scares, the way I like it :) Of course, my son preferred to sit with his friends rather than with me. After all, when you're a teenager, it's no longer cool to sit with Mom. Although he had NO PROBLEM with me paying for the ticket. He asked that I sit in the front while he sat at the very back. Oh well, at least we were still in the same theatre ;)

Anyone else see "IT"?? What did you think?

CharmingB
10-03-2017, 08:25 AM
I haven't had time to see IT yet. I will have to wait till it comes out on video I live in a small city and the switch the movies out very quickly. But my cards are finished and ready for the mail.

Many of King’s novels are set in a fictional town called Derry, based on his hometown of Bangor, Maine. King’s influence on Bangor is obvious, from the “Welcome to Derry” sign to the “SK Tours” busses. His house is fitted with an iron gate that can only be described as creepy. It's fun to imagine him writing his novels within this stately red-painted home with white trim.

(I tried to post a picture of his house but I couldn't. Argh!)

Here's a link to a fan's website with a photo. She also has a neat survey online.

I really love all the cards posted! I'll be finishing and posting mine very soon. Not sure which Stephen King book I like best. I loved Salem's Lot so much but they sure butchered it in the movie. The new IT movie rocked and I'm looking forward to the sequel they just have to make to finish the story. I've read most of his books at least twice. Don't know how anyone could possibly pick a favorite, though. Have not read the Tower series but I plan to. Anyone hooked on Joe Hill too? I've also read a great book by SK's wife Tabitha, The Trap and plan to read the rest of her books.

mcgillisj
11-12-2017, 09:16 PM
I didn't realize Stephen King's wife was also an author. Does she write thrillers as well?

I just finished watching "1922" on Netflix. It's based on a novella by Stephen King. It was ok. As usual, the plot was pretty depressing and the ending was even more so. But, we all know his stories don't have happy endings! ;)

My 13 year old son wants to read a Stephen King novel so I recommended "Pet Sematary". Hope he likes it!
