TONY MAGISTRALEProfessor and Associate Chair of the English Department at the University of Vermont, USA. He has published twenty books and is widely considered one of America's foremost scholars of horror film, gothic fiction, and the work of Stephen King.


Endorsements Praise for Magistrale's Hollywood's Stephen King: 'A great read, insightful and intelligent Tony has helped me improve my reputation from an ink-stained wretch popular novelist to an ink-stained wretch popular novelist with occasional flashes of muddy insight.' - Stephen King 'This book is a useful elucidation of King's work through the skewed lens of Hollywood.' - Publishers Weekly Review 'Magistrale digs deeper than mere plots, excavating compelling and disturbing themes in the gothic oeuvre of the master storyteller; he deserves accolades for bricking a foundational context for interpreting the enduring visions of King.' - Choice
