Just finished this book by Stephen King, about a high school English teacher who goes back in time to try and stop Kennedy's assassination. It's one of the most interesting books I've ever read, I like it a lot. Anyone else read it?

Wasn't that an episode of either the "New" TZ or that Spielberg vehicle, Amazing Stories?

Maybe? I should clarify, though. The door to the past goes back to September 1958, so much of the book is his life in the past leading up to the eponymous date.

I haven't read it, though I am a fan of alternate history, so I may find a copy somewhere and read it.

I hadn't read this yet, but I am a King fan, and I was curious about this.  I'll definitely pick it up now.

Never read it, but I bet he kills Kennedy.

The ending is much more interesting than any of that and I shan't say anymore.
