Stephen King is a famed best-selling horror/suspense novelist, whose works have been adapted into many films and television series (notably Carrie, The Shining, Salem's Lot, I.T., The Shawshank Redemption, Misery & The Dark Tower series). An occasional actor (having had small roles in many of the adaptations of his books), King played Bachman in the season 3 Sons of Anarchy episode Caregiver. (This was something of an in-joke as "Richard Bachman" was one of King's former pen names.)
A fictional novel by King, titled Cycle Zombies, appears in the season 4 episode Family Recipe. It is being read by Piney Winston in the cabin before he puts it down and answer the door to Clay Morrow.
