i have to say i will miss him most as he was probably my favorite character.

also i just learned about why he was writing a book about traveling across America on his motorcycle, and why it amused Entrangian... i was at a local thrift store when i found a John Steinbeck novel called Travels with Charley: it is about Steinbeck traveling through America with his dog and reconnecting with what he loved about the country. i only caught this reference after having completed Desperation, but i bought the Steinbeck book as a result. :p

did anyone else know this reference prior to reading Desperation?

it is definitely interesting that King was making reference to that book for the book that Johnny was writing. the title was practically the same.
