How's this for scary: Horror master Stephen King told the Los Angeles Times that he plans to quit writing books because he's already starting to "recycle stuff." Of course, this so-called retirement doesn't kick in until after he completes work on five more books and a limited series for ABC. In related news, the second part of Stephen King's Rose Red held up well in the ratings Monday night, attracting 18.7 million viewers. The third and final installment airs Thursday.
