    Default Gus Pillsbury first choice for pseudonym?

    Hello,

    Is it true that the first choice for S. King's pseudonym was "Gus Pillsbury". If so, why was it rejected?

    Thanks!

    Guy Pillsbury, actually, and the pseudonym leaked out before he was able to use it so he had to come up with a replacement on short notice.

    Wow, first I heard of this! Cool! Isn't the Pillsbury name from Tabby's side of the family?

    No, it was his mother's side.
