Bangor/Stephen King Question
 
Does anyone know if Stephen King offers tours of his home? I'm assuming no, but thought I'd ask to see if any of the locals might know a secret handshake or something. :)

I'm fairly positive that he does not. He is for the most part a private man who does not venture into public alot. I know his illustator and Mr. King is a very generous and nice guy, he just prefers to keep his private life that way.

X2 on no, he doesn't. He likes to be left alone but me and a couple of fraternities Brothers a long time ago walked up and asked if he wanted to donate some bottles for the Children's Miracle Network and he ended up giving us a $50 bill which was really cool and he was fun to talk too.

I find I like him best if I avoid movies based on his books and his photographs all seem like someone other than a guy who can write that well. Thank goodness writer celebraties lead quieter lives than their cinema cousins.

If I remember right, on Halloween he does a haunted house that is open to the public

From what I heard Stephen King spends most of his time at his home in Bridgeton ME, I have been to his Bangor house, I can't figure out how to post a pic here though.

Directly below the reply, you will see a box which says, "Upload a Photo".

I tried using the photobucket link and it didn't work then I tried to upload the file after that I used the upload from URL but I looked again and my pics are too big (800X600)

Looks like you got it. What a great house!

the house
 
Are any of his books set in houses that are based on his real home? It looks like the kind of place that Carolyn Keene, Edgar Allen Poe and Alfred Hitchcock would like!

(P.S. Carolyn Keene isn't a real person. It's the pseudonym of the umpteen ghost writers who have penned Nancy Drew novels.)

Just looks like a Victorian house to me. We have several similar ones here.
