Some Other "Stephen King"

Posted: October 11th, 2016 7:23:11 pm

Update (3): We've heard from Amazon, and they'll be adding the other "Stephen King's" middle initial to all of his books going forward. They have additionally added the following message on each book: “Please Note: Amazon offers books by various authors named Stephen King. If you are looking for Stephen King, bestselling author of The Shining and The Stand, please visit his Amazon.com Author Page.”

Thanks for your help, Constant Readers!

Amazon has been deceptively marketing and selling books by some other "Stephen King" as the work of this Stephen King for several years. Despite innumerable requests from us to address this problem within their system, these books are still listed as authored by and associated with Stephen King, the author of Misery, Carrie, etc.

All of the books by this Stephen King can be found within The Library section of this website.

None of the following books are by this Stephen King. If you have been deceived and purchased one of these books, you should contact Amazon and demand your money be refunded.

  • Awaken
  • Grave Decisions
  • Descendants
  • The Crossroads Series
  • Dark Love The Underground
  • Beast Control
  • Redstone
  • Blood Rituals

As Amazon has failed to resolve this with only our requests,  please drop them a line  and let them know how you feel about their marketing of these books to you Constant Readers.

Update: We've now heard from many people that Amazon is additionally email-marketing these other "Stephen King" books to people who have bought books by Stephen King in the past.

Update (2): We were notified that Barnes & Noble was also listing these books as authored by this Stephen King. We contacted Barnes & Noble, and they were able to resolve this in less than four hours. The other author is Stephen King (2), and is no longer associated with Stephen King.
