1. A review of the Cujo blue ray DVD. http://www.popsyndicate.com/site/story/cujo/
.
"The few features of the Blu-ray include an audio commentary with director Teague. Teague is engaging through the entirety of the track providing insight about the his history with the film. He gives a good bit of technical information behind the filming of certain key scenes as well. There is also a 43 minute making-of documentary, Dog Days: The Making of Cujo. The first of the three parts covers the adaptation process and the interviews are notable for the lack of Stephen King himself. The second part focuses on the performances of the actors dog and human alike as well as the photography of the film. Finally, the other elements of filmmaking (editing, sound, etc.) are covered in the final part. It’s a thorough featurette well worth watching."

2. Review: The Stand / Captain Trips (bookgasam) http://www.bookgasm.com/reviews/comics/the-stand/comment-page-1/#comment-65046
.
Rod Lott writes, "In 1984, I was in eighth grade. During the week of standarized tests, I rushed through them to finish early, in order to spend as much time as possible reading a paperback of Stephen King’s THE STAND. In the quarter century that has passed, I’ve never re-read the novel, but it’s amazing how much of its characters and events have stuck with me all this time. (And, no, I’ve never seen the miniseries.)
.
"They came flooding back as I read the Marvel Comics adapation of King’s masterwork, currently collected in two hardcovers, both written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and pencilled by Mike Perkins: THE STAND: CAPTAIN TRIPS and THE STAND: AMERICAN NIGHTMARES, containing five issues apiece, and now no longer confined to comic-book stores only.

3. Review of Haunted Heart. http://thephoenix.com/Portland/arts/95645-searching-for-stephen-king/
.
Which, you might note as I say "i told you so" that the writer here comes to the same conclusion I posted just days BEFORE they published this article. Namely, as they say, this biography lacks "heart."
