Of his books, the ones that stand out are:

The Stand
The entire Gunslinger series
The Eyes of the Dragon (Just finished, and really liked it)
The Shining
As a former English major, I'm a bit of a literary snob, but I must admit I maintain a soft spot for Stephen King.

Have you read Cell? I'm a huge fan of zombie movies, so I was really looking forward to this one. It started out great, but I kind of got disappointed when it went into the whole telepathy bit. And the ending really pissed me off. You aren't William Faulkner, King; an irresolute ending is unacceptable for a popular writer.
