Bring Stephen King Home With You!

Posted: August 28, 2014, 10:51:17

How about taking King home with you? Well now you almost can, sort of. I have gotten one of The Simpsons Stephen King figures to give away to one of you and I don’t know about you but I think this is a really cool little fellow.

This is how you can go home with one!

#1. From each post on facebook that gets more than 250 likes before September 14 I will draw 5 names.

#2. From each post on facebook that gets more than 50 shares before September 14 like I will draw 5 names.

#3. Out of every tweet that mentions @LiljasLibrary between August 28 and September 14 I will draw 5 names.

#4. From every comment posted on between August 28 and September 14 (that contains the words “Simpsons”, “King” and “Lilja”) I will draw 5 names.

Then out of these 20 names I will draw one lucky winner! So, what are you waiting for? Like, Share, Tweet and Comment until your fingers bleed!

Thanks to NECA and more info about The Simpsons figures you can find here.

Ep 34: A Bev Vincent Revival

Section: General news » Podcast

With your hosts Hans Lilja of Lilja's Library and Lou Sytsma.

Welcome to Episode 34 of The Stephen King Podcast!

We're Back! After a summer hiatus we return with a KING Sized Episode and special returning guest - writer and Stephen King expert - Bev Vincent.

We have a lot of Stephen King news covering movies, tv series, stage, and of course books.

Bev joins us to talk about Haven as we talk about our thoughts on the series past seasons and the upcoming Season 5. Bev shares what he did on his summer vacation which included a set visit to Haven.

Then Bev sticks around and we compare notes on the current season of Under The Dome.

Before Bev leaves us, he sets our old school King horror taste buds salivating with his nonspoilery thoughts on King's next book - Revival - which he just finished reading. To say we are left chomping at the bit to get our hands on this is a vast understatement.

We hope you enjoy this episode and, as usual, we want to hear from you.

Good or bad, we want it all!
