    As in, chapter for chapter? Sharing parts?

    Because this was one of my favorites, I always wanted to like Straub's stuff, and never did. How could I like this one SO much, and not like anything else of Straub's?

    I think the two of them have never shared how they did it, including which chapters (assuming they didn't share chapters) belong to whom.

    Good question. It's one of my favorite books that I don't currently own.

    I'm pretty sure I know who wrote what, but good writers can easily chameleonize.

    Man- I don't see how two authors could do that!

    It sounds not too unlike some ways in which teams of writers sit down to write a show together.

    I LOVE this book! It's great.

    I tried reading the Talisman when I was a teenager, could not get into it. I will have to pick it back up and try again. I have heard others comment the same and were glad they give it another shot.

    Did you read Floating Dragon by Straub? This book is somewhat like the Talisman, IMO.
