Transcript ■■■EH BHBH ■BMnHMRi : ■■■■■■ iiliil Stephen King by Charles L. Grant The weekend of 20-22 April, 1979, was somewhat hectic. In the first place it was the time of the Science Fiction Writers of America Nebula orgy, when we con ourselves into thinking that we've conned the editors and publishers into thinking they're impressed — and if they are, they've become masters of the understatement: "Nice." On that Friday I drove into Manhattan to begin setting up the hotel for the proceedings. On Saturday my wife drove in to attend the banquet. It was her first time driving in the city — with our/her new car, yet — and I was frazzled by the middle of that afternoon just thinking about my piece of the rock chipping off. Saturday night we drove home in her car. Sunday I returned to the city to pick up my car, and wound my way through the Queens Midtown Tunnel to LaGuardia Airport. From there I was to fly to Maine to meet my agent and Stephen King. On Delta Airlines. Sigh. My first intimation of impending disaster should have struck me when I found a parking space at the airport without any trouble at all. That just isn't done. In Newark, maybe. In Los Angeles, perhaps. Even, for God's sake, in Philadelphia. But not in New York. But I was undaunted. The weekend had been successful, I hadn't gotten more than ten minutes lost, and there was that marvelous parking space on Level 2 of LaGuardia's multi-tiered concrete tomb. Fool that I was, I smiled, hefted my bags (one suitcase, one briefcase) and walked the fourteen miles to the Delta Airlines ticket counter. Ordered my ticket, paid for it, saw my bag swallowed, and headed for the check-in line. I was supposed to end up in Bangor. The notice on the wall behind the jacketless attendent said I was going to end up in Portland. I considered for a moment before asking the attendent to take a look at my ticket. Delta Airlines. I ran back to the ticket counter, did my best to complain in a civilized manner, and was presented — with profuse and gentle apologies — with the proper papers. Lord was that plane small! But it did take me, eventually, to Bangor. And note, should you ever want to fly to Bangor (don't ask), that it should always, but always, be done during the day. I flew at night. Ten minutes outside the airport the pilot had to turn on his headlights to find the place. Believe me, it was dark out there. I thought we had been flying over the ocean, the occasional light being that of a ship or beacon. What I had really been looking at were trees — millions of them. If there were any roads, they were camouflaged. And if it hadn't been for the guy standing in the middle of the runway with the flashlight... well, I don't really want to think about it.
