    Ummm...I don't think so. Bachman is his pseudonym, and I haven't seen anything by him lately. The book I was thinking of is fairly recent. A couple years ago, maybe. Of course, I could be entirely wrong about the whole thing. But it was definitely written as Stephen King, not Richard Bachman. Darnit, now I gotta go look it up.
    Race ya!

    Thanks, Abbey. Didn't like it, huh? I devoured it in 2 1/2 days!

    I too am a big Stephen King fan. I actually love the Dark Tower series, but it was so long between books, I had to go and reread some of the prior ones. I think the film of The Green Mile did justice to the book. I really thought it was great. My favorite book, and I think it can hold it's own against any of the classics I've read as a literature minor, is The Stand.

    I've just finished reading Stephen King's latest novel, 11-22-63. I would recommend it highly. Makes you think, "What if?"

    If there was a place in time you would like to go back to...what would it be? Remember, you can't change anything though.

    The last King book I read was "Under the Dome" and man, was it baaaad. I'm not quite as enthusiastic a fan as I used to be but I'll give the new one a peek since you liked it. However, his writing has held up a lot better than Koontz's, all he seems to write about now are angels and super intelligent dogs. Everything seems candy coated.

    I'd like to go back to 1950s San Diego and buy some real estate then stick around to watch all the weird **** during the 60s... and then invest in Microsoft, Apple, Google and Amazon when they finally show up. I'd like to warn John Lennon to watch his back as well... maybe throw Yoko in front of him on the fateful day.

    I have probably replied to this post before, but WTH..I will reply again. While I am not as into his books as I used to be, I still enjoy some of his stuff. Except for the Dark Tower series. I had bought two or three of them, could not get into the series, and gave them all to a friend. A recent (within past couple of years) one I liked was Duma Key. Pretty good.
    Who is watching Haven, which is based on the Colorado Kid. There are supposedly SK references through the series. I do remember a Pennywise type clown, and a brief storyline of a little boy getting lost after following a paper boat down into a sewer. I have not actively looked for other references...but I know in the opening credits there is a flash of an article or something that mentions Reverend Flagg

    Went looking back at other posts after posting my latest. Forgot about Under the Dome and 11/22/63. I actually quite liked both, especially the Kennedy one. That seems to go back to "if you could go back and change history, would you".

    I am a fan of SK, & I watched Haven. I liked it, but had to give it up as something I liked more was on at the same time. I started to tape the show, but I find I rarely have the time to watch what's taped. It's coming back on, so, if nothing major to me is at the same time I will watch again. I liked the cast very much, the New England setting, the stories.
