His book Different Seasons have been made into as far as I can tell 3 movies. Two Shawshank Redemption and Stand By Me are the two best movie adaptations. I have not seen the movie based on Apt Student any good?
I read the book when it came out and the novella that stayed in my mind the longest was the last one. Has it ever been adapted? Did they rename it and I missed the movie. The birthing scene was one of the saddest, creepy but well written that you do not forget. It needs to be a movie.
