    In this June 1, 2017, file photo, author Stephen King speaks at Book Expo America in New York.

    Stephen King says he wants to help a Maine bookstore owner who lost thousands of dollars' worth of rare books, including original King manuscripts, after flood caused by a broken pipe.

    King tells the Bangor Daily News he was "horrified'' to hear about Gerald Winters' bookstore in Bangor. Winters says about 2,000 books were ruined, including rare first-editions. As many as seven of King's original typed manuscripts, including, those for "Dolan's Cadillac,'' and "The Eyes of the Dragon,'' also were lost.

    King says he plans to reach out to Winters and see if he can help. The horror writer says he was heart-stricken as a book lover.

    Winters opened Gerald Winters & Son in King's hometown in 2016. Winters spent almost 20 years collecting rare King books and other items.
