Letter from Stephen King Age 14

Stephen King Age 14

Posted on February 17, 2013

In 1961 an aspiring young author aged just 14 wrote a submission letter in the hope his short story ‘The Killer’ would be published. It arrived at the offices of Spacemen Magazine. Unfortunately the magazine’s editor didn’t deem the tale worthy of inclusion at that point.

Ironically, 33 years later the editor changed his mind and finally decided to publish it in issue #202 of another of his magazines titled ‘Famous Monsters of Filmland.’ At that point, however, the story’s author, Mr Stephen King, was then aged 47 and already rather successful to say the very least.
