Yup, no doubt. I think perhaps he was going to mention another work by
Stephen King (which one? The Long Walk, maybe?) but it got munged ---
doubt he really meant to attribute THT to SK.
Still, the pointer to Lewis's book is the meat of it. I hadn't thought
about that book in, oh, 20 years but --- yeah --- well worth a re-read.
