Stephen King isn't satisfied with selling zillions of books. He isn't satisfied with several decades of movie adaptations, from "Carrie" in 1976 to "The Mist" in 2007. He isn't satisfied with an income that must rival that of the rest of the state of Maine.
No, he wants to be King. An empire-type King.
King (shown here with some loyal subjects and his Minister of Defense) wants his fans to help develop a virtual empire that he can rule over. Here's how he describes it on his website: "After 36 years (give or take) of writing stories, I find myself hungry—not for food, but for power. I've decided to build a virtual empire, but I need your help. Please pitch in and help me feed my insatiable appetite for grandiosity."
