Stephen King's Under the Dome cover artAs a long-time Stephen King enthusiast, I've enjoyed most of his books, but it's his massive otherworldly tomes that grab my attention the most. It and The Stand are lauded as landmarks in horror, but I may have enjoyed the sinister science fiction elements of The Tommyknockers even more. He handles his technology and aliens from a completely different perspective than most science fiction writers.

Rather than revel in the wonder of it all, it's just the backdrop to the real human stories within. King's latest epic, Under the Dome, looks to again explore how regular people respond to the extraordinary. The premise is simple enough: an enormous invisible dome suddenly encases the town of Chester's Mill, Maine. What follows is how the community responds to it.
