This isn't the first time Stephen King has banned a particular word or phrase. Anyone who's read his excellent book <em>On Writing</em> will know he has more than a few pet peeves, and in recent years he's taken to expressing these on Twitter.

Something more pungent & specific, please. — Stephen King (@StephenKing) October 29, 2018 RIP, amazing.

Henry Yau was staying at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, when he took a photo of the lobby. Now paranormal investigators are using at as proof of the afterlife.
It feels like a lifetime since we last visited Westeros but the wait is almost over, hopefully delivering the answer to the question on everyone’s lips: Is Jon Snow really dead?

Stephen King called it “smart, suspenseful, subversive”, and if it’s good enough for the King of Horror, it’s good enough for me.
