Ms mod not understanding how it not help us in Canada? It's really expensive to get a copy from the u of Maine considering our exchange.. it whould be good for some of us who whantes to read it
We understand but not much we can do about postage and exchange costs as that's out of our control. Right now they are working on other ways to try to make this more accessible but don't have an immediate solution to the problem.

I really liked it!!! one thing that would have been interesting to include would have been an essay by Tabby on the same subject as the other contributors. She was there and her viewpoint would be interesting. It would have made the book even better.
Kurben -- there was a post someplace (?) , I'll try to find it tonight, as to why Tabby did not contribute. Glad you enjoyed the book.

You know, you've given me an idea. Tabby should write a memoir that entails her side of her husband's rise to literary stardom. She is very tight-lipped, I think, and is a staunch defender of their privacy (as she should be) but I think her laconic nature goes further than simply being from Maine. I'm speaking as one who doesn't know her, so I might have it all wrong. On occasion I've seen her open up during interviews and speaking engagements, she's quite cheeky.

SK cited a saying from her in his essay that i loved "Steve heard Nixon say he had a plan (to end the war),.. And he believed him" . In the essay SK describes the total incredulity she says this with.

That's funny. :congratulatory:
Stephen said one time it was a good thing, with his nature, he wasn't born a woman because he'd be pregnant all the time. LOL.

I've suggested that since she is quite the photographer that she should write a memoir and include some of the pictures that she's taken over the years.

I really whant her to write one. If you read her essay thingi in the book rock bottom remainders it is quite interesting. I really whant to know what it was like when she walked in to see some random lady in her kitchen looking to see what food king likes to eat. Or if she ever felt jealous knowing that her husband got telephone numbers to come and visit them in a hotel or having panties and bras sent to him. And other bizzare crap.. she wrote about how some dumb b$$$ jumped into their limo and confessed her love for Stephen king mind and they both had to shiver her out of the limo. I was thinking wiht the me too movement she whould have a great voice about talking about how she was not taken seriously as a writer due to her being a female and the wife of a famous writer. I like how king states that Lesy is not his wife. And we are all like um yes it it’s.

:laugh:

I think Lisey is probably the closest character to Tabitha King, not in looks but in personality. Throw in a little Dolores Claiborne, which King said was based on a few of the Spruce women in his life.
I'm pretty sure that I read Steve say that Delores was based on his own mother- her toughness, her lack of patience with putting up with crap and bullsh*tters. The female characters in Lisey's Story I believe are based upon a few of the real women in his life.

It's alright. Happens to us all at some point. I mix things up all the time anymore. There's just too much crap in my brain and I can't keep putting more in there unless I throw some stuff out, ya know? I hang on to the important things like who sang 'In The Summertime' (Jerry Bongo, I think.....) but show me a new program on a computer and I can't keep it straight. Ya want me on your Trivial Pursuit team, let me tell ya. ;-D

I get confused as to the story with how Jupiter was found out that joe hill was Stephen kings son with how it was revealed that Richard Bachman was in fact Stephen king. Spring was found out, joe came out as he was afraid of his secret coming out. He knew with his book release of heart shaped box it whould have been blown.

Just keep in mind that the guy that discovered that Richard Bachman was really Stephen King basically tried to blackmail Steve with the information. That's why Steve decided to let the truth come to light. I don't think anyone tried to blackmail Joe.
