Canadian horror master David Cronenberg will interview American horror master Stephen King live onstage in Toronto on Nov. 19.

The event is being organized by Simon & Schuster and will be held at the Canon Theatre. It will be hosted by George Stroumboulopoulos of the CBC Television show The Hour.

King has written more horror books than there are maggots in the mouth of a corpse, including Carrie, The Shining, Salem's Lot, Misery, The Tommyknockers, Rage, The Dead Zone, Christine, Pet Sematary and It. He has sold more than 350-million copies of his books.

Cronenberg, meanwhile, directed the movie version of The Dead Zone and has directed and sometimes written a number of classic horror films, such as Scanners, The Brood, Rapid and Shivers. He also did the 1986 remake of The Fly.

Should be a fun night. Tickets are $33 and $28, and go on sale tomorrow. For more information, visit www.simonandschuster.ca.
