Uh, no. For us who follow the Gregorian calendar, today is the only May 16th, 2021, there is. It isn’t May 16th for those who follow the Eastern Orthodox calendar, and won’t be until 13 days from now (according to your info.) And 13 days from now it will be May 29th for us. So, logically, for both sets of beliefs, there’s only one May 16th. Follow me? (Good gawd: is this philosophy or time travel??? )

I, too, don’t much care for King’s genre. And, as you say, Rowling improved tremendously as she went along. But even in her first Harry Potter novel, her plotting was tight, her characters well-defined, and her universe well planned. Same goes for what little I’ve read of King. And, like Rowling, his prose—sentence structure, description, etc.—is professional and well executed for his kind of book.
I don’t care how many “stars” it has on Amazon. Its writing style is amateurish; its characters wooden, almost caricature; its plot contradictory and cliched. Then there’s the fact that I’ve been reading a LOT longer than many of those readers and my tastes are perhaps more developed.
The Smithsonian’s lead article this morning is titled “Is straight lightning evidence of Dark matter?” Maybe it’s evidence of the Wiz????
What, he’s a legend in him own mind? Sorta like john wayne?
Our book club just finished what has to be the worst-written book in years: “The Rejected Writer’s Book Club.” Honest to gawd, how does stuff like this get published??
It’s quality, not quantity, that counts. AND. . .not everybody who reads a comic feels the necessity to comment. . .
