Hi all just got the the point where Johnny is at his dad's house and is getting stuff in the mail, and am wondering out if all his books how autobiographical is it?
....considering King's Father walked out on his family when he was very small, I would say there is no connection at all.....

Yeah, actually King can psychically foresee certain events, very autobiographical in my opinion
what i meant by autobiographical is that in the book johnny smith is trying to decide and learn how to use his gift. as this was one of kings early works i think that he was also working out how he should deal with his gift of writing and creating stories, and the type of stories he tells so by writing johnny smith he was using the writing to work out his own feelings
