Experts predict a rise in adult diaper sales in Brooklyn this week, when two kings of horror writing visit the Borough of Kings within days of each other. Legendary scarer of children R.L. Stine is haunting BookCourt in Boerum Hill on April 18 with his latest book “Don’t Stay Up Late.” And legendary legend Stephen King will lurch into to Saint Francis College in Brooklyn Heights on April 21, where he will be part of a panel discussion with his son, novelist Owen King, horror writer Peter Straub, and his daughter, novelist Emma Straub. But which scary story spinner is truly the greatest? On the one hand, R.L. Stine is considerably more prolific and has his own video game. On the other, Stephen King is Stephen King. So we have pitted the two authors head to head in a definitive battle of arbitrary facts and figures. Let’s go to the tape!
