Regardless of his qualities as a writer (while he's extremely good at what he does, his most ardent admirers sometimes confuse 'prolific' with 'writer of capable prose'), there's little doubt that few novelists have had as many truly great films made from their work as Stephen King. "Carrie," "The Shining," "Stand By Me," "Misery," "The Shawshank Redemption" -- all classics, and all derived from novels or short stories by King. Recent years haven't been so kind, however, with films like "Dreamcatcher" and "Hearts in Atlantis" lining up alongside "Maximum Overdrive" as some of the worst King adaptations.
