About SKzd

Long days and pleasant nights, traveler🌙 I'm Zach Dionne, and I’m creating material about STEPHEN KING and his marvelous, macabre multiverse for you—readers, horror-heads, the curious and casual, the indifferent-yet-supportive. For your SKzd patronage at any level you'll get original longform features—essays, curated mega-lists, reviews of new work, and more—and access to The Dark Tower Mixtape, a newbie-friendly audio quest where I narrate and musically score the series' greatest hits. In the upper tiers you'll receive additional exclusive writing, welcome gifts, extended TDTM tracks, eternal gratitude, and only time will tell what else. We're just getting started here.

A little about me: I grew up a Constant Reader in Maine, learned journalism at SK's alma mater/student paper (UM/The Maine Campus), and for 15 years have been drawn back into the world of King and the orbit of his wonderful fans over and over. A few career highlights:
🎈 The World of Stephen King, A to Z
(Rolling Stone)
👑 My SK interview (Grantland)
📺 Streamin' King column (Decider, 2017-present)
🎧 My King Origin Story & Under the Dome Defense (The Kingcast)
🌹 The Dark Tower Encyclopedia (New York magazine's Vulture)
🎤 19 King Actors Who Narrated His Audiobooks (Vulture)

Thank you so much for being here, I'm ridiculously excited to palaver with you.
