    He talks about green paper he wrote The Gunslinger on when he was young (apart from the last chapter/part which he finished much later). And The Cannibals excerpt is written on green paper too. He must have bought a lot of that.

    King basically changed with the times. Isn't it interesting how we went from handwriting to typewriters and now to computers. Everything becomes less work for us.

    I honestly don't remember which was the first on a Mac but it's been about 20 years since he switched over from the Wang and he'd been using the word processor for a while before I started working for him so don't know about that either.
    I really really want to make a joke about "the Wang" but I am trying to be mature here (for a change)
    It's just a snickering cartoon dog - I hope it shows up this time!
