Stephen King is writing a monthly column for the first time since his college days. King says he was approached by Entertainment Weekly after they published his review of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. He'll be penning a monthly piece for the magazineopens in new window called The Pop of King, in which he will give opinions on books, television, movies and more:

The editors came back to him, he says, because they either liked the review or the fact that it was written in longhand.

"For all I know, they might have thought it would be good to have at least one writer on tap who could turn in copy even after a nuclear pulse wiped out the hard drives on all the laptops," King writes.
