I was so lucky to stop reading King after the 2nd dark tower book came out. Not really by choice but kind of forgot about reading anything new after that book. That being said, with the advent of excellent cable TV like game of thrones out, I don't get why a cable TV network doesn't invest heavily into a good King book that can be drawn out into 12 episodes (like what netflix is doing with house of cards).
I also don't get why ron howard or even michael bay (yup I said it) doesn't make a super cheesy/hammy/entertainment only movie based on a Deen Koontz book like Cold Fire. Koontz's books seem tailor made for that kind of movie making.
