My recent book is a collection of characters, events and details that sometimes seem too outrageous to be true. But, as Mark Twain once said, truth is stranger than fiction.

This is what people are saying about The Day They Shot Reveen – Stories from a PEI small town:

CBC Radio interview with Matt Rainnie, May 12, 2016.


All Dennis King’s stories pulsate with the energy of authentic small town experience. He will take you to the heart of Georgetown, but because he knows the terrain so well, and plumbs it so deeply, with such wit and affection, the local opens up to the universal. Page after page readers will discover they have been transported beyond Georgetown to familiar, perhaps forgotten, places within themselves.

Here’s what you get with Dennis King: he writes with spirit and zest; he writes with piercing insight; and he writes from the heart. And, oh yes, he’s also funny as hell. Need a good laugh? Look no further.

There is an old Russian proverb that the fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one thing well. There is something of both of those in Denny, and the one thing he knows well is Georgetown and its people. I highly recommend you take the town-tour with this talented storytelling guide.

“To know France, you must know something about wine. With Canada, It’s hockey. And PEI? You have to know about the Kennedy family – Brad Richards made sure I understood this…. And you must know about Dennis King!”
