"I was down here in the supermarket, and this old woman comes around the corner this old woman – obviously one of the kind of women who says whatever is on her brain. She said, ‘I know who you are, you are the horror writer. I don’t read anything that you do, but I respect your right to do it. I just like things more genuine, like that ‘Shawshank Redemption.’ And I said, ‘I wrote that’. And she said, ‘No you didn’t’. And she walked off and went on her way." -Stephen King
