For someone that likely spends most of his time locked in an office in front of a computer or typewriter, the guy is far, far more entertaining than you'd expect. If you knew nothing about him other than the anecdotes he had, you'd think he wrote humor books rather than horror.
I grew up about an hour from where he lived in Maine and read everything he has written. Seen him talk twice he is indeed very entertaining.
