11-22-63 & New World Order

    Has anyone read New World Order by Ralph Epperson? I was really curious if the two last names of Franco's character in 11-22-63 would be considered an Easter egg or coincidence. Epping and Amberson.

    Yep, I have read The New World Order. Good book. Well documented.

    The Unseen Hand is another good book by Ralph Epperson. I even know Ralph. We've spoken on the phone several times. He's a gentleman. His book is well-documented and he backs up everything he says.

    No, I don't think Stephen King was referring to Ralph in 11/22/63. Fantastic novel with a captivating plot and great characterization. One of King's best. But I don't agree with King's position concerning what happened to JFK.

    I'm not sure if Stephen King has ever directly stated that he doesn't believe in a global conspiracy. He does, however, cast the subject in a dismissive light within the narrative of several of his novels. King either doesn't agree that there is a global conspiracy...or else he is aware of it but keeps his mouth shut about what he knows. He's a public figure, and to maintain that position, he can't alienate his readership, so he has to watch what he says.

    I can't find where he said it, but I'm pretty sure that when the book was released Stephen said that based on all the research he did for the book he didn't believe in a grand conspiracy.
