why people think Steven King is scary. I have read:

The Green Mile
The Talisman (just finished today)
The Stand
Hearts in Atlantis
The Skeleton Crew
It
The Dead Zone
The Gun Slinger
The Drawing of the Three
The Wastelands
Wizard and Glass
The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon

It seems like I've read more but I can't remember the rest right now. Maybe I'm missing something but other than It, I have yet to be frightened by any of his novels. Maybe I'm stronger than I thought. Maybe Steven King isn't as scary as they say he is.

Here's the cover for The Dead Zone:

No one comes close to the phenomenon of the world's most popular creator of terror and suspense. And this is one of his best...
The stunning novel of second-sight praised by the Atlanta Journal as "a compulsive page-turner" and by the Los Angeles Times as "faultlessly paced [and] continuously engrossing."
***

Please. That book was good, but not in the least scary. I'm not really sure what to think? Are there scarier SK books (with happy endings!) out there? I've heard Pet Semetary is fairly frightening but I don't want everyone to die.
