BOOK NEWS II
HOLD THE RICE: STEPHEN King's son, Owen, hopes the New York Times Book Review covers his debut novella and story collection, "We're All in This Together" — but not if it commissions a certain other famous son of a horror writer to review it. "I just hope they don't get Christopher Rice to do it," Owen, 28, tells Post book critic Steve Garbarino. Christopher Rice is the novelist son of vampire fanatic Anne Rice. "It would make a mockery of all my hard-earned efforts," says the literary-leaning Owen, who's trying to avoid a "horror" typecasting. The Times' bookworms did not return calls. For the record, The Post liked it fine.
