I haven't been on in a while. In my absence I read Desperation and The Regulators. These were the hardest books by Mr. King/Bachman for me to get through thus far. Desperation picked up a lot after the halfway point and it kept my attention. I didn't care for The Regulators much at all although the ending was touching. Johnny was my favourite character in both novels.

The Regulators was supposed to be a Richard Bachman novel and it shows. It's pretty bleak. Desperation (my favorite of the two) was a little too heavy handed on the religious theme for many readers.

For the last few months I’ve been working my way through a book concerning the history of the Rocky Mountains, aptly titled “The Rockies” by David Lavender.

By coincidence (there are no coincidences) last night I was reading about a gang of professional gunmen hired by the leading members of an association of cattlemen in Colorado in 1892 to take on harassing and in one case killing two settlers.




They were known as the Regulators.
