    Default King's Father

    I've read a bit about SK's relationship with his mother, but there is little mention of his father. I seem to recall his father left early in his life. That must have had an enormous impact on him. Did he ever keep in contact with his father? Don't ever recall him ever discussing it or how much it impacts his writing. I was reading recently that one trait of many overachieving males is the absence or death of a father early in life.

    really not much is known about stephens father...

    oh, there are rumors, of course...

    the only thing known for sure is that his first name, being of german descent, was Burger,..and that he left home, in the middle of the depression, to try and make his fortune with a hamburger joint

    he was never heard of again...or so the russians would have us believe....

    Stephen never had contact with his father after he left the family when Stephen was 2.

    Ohhhhhhhh, you did NOT just post that.

    -Oh. My. God. You did. You just posted that.

    Stop talking with my father and slap in your pun filters. The groaning is becoming annoying from the peanut gallery.
