    Who the 'real' guy is/was I really dont want to know. Some things you just cannot unknow. I just know it would be like that irritating little tune you simply cannot get out of your head once it gets in there

    It's not going to be anytime soon, Tiny, if ever. He's got too many other priorities keeping him busy. Just don't want to give you any false hope you'll ever know the answer to that one.

    I guess it never occurred to me that it was based on a real person. I took it as a completely fictional character. I usually read all the after notes, if there was something indicating that Peter Jeffreys is based on a real person I must have skimmed over that part because i don't remember it lol.

    Seeing as it's related to the short story in question, I'll just use this thread to say that I hugely enjoyed "Dedication". Really odd concept but something that quickly unfolded itself as being a little gem of a story.

    In the Notes section of that book Mr. King says he will not name the guy
    "here and now" ....meaning he would (might) name the guy later in some other
    venue .... or something.

    Ms Mod could gently remind him that its been 26 years now...or whatever

    I get the impression that mr King cant remember who the guy was IRL ....
    so , WE MIGHT ALL BE out of luck !!!

    Hemingway is still my guess.

    I believe Mr. King has access to stories that we dont. From Friends and family of all
    kinds of celebs ...like Hemingway.... King hears lots of stories about other celebs...
    ,...that we, the public, will NEVER hear .

    I have written a hand printed letter to S.K. I have put it in an actual envelope.
    I intend to "mail" it to Bangor the old fashion way, with whats called a "stamp"

    This is all quite fun, its been a long time for me.

    I now need ms. mods reg' snail mail address.

    I wouldn't be surprised if King wasn't referring to himself as the writer. He did go through a drug/alcohol induced period where I'm sure when he looked back on it, wasn't terribly impressed with himself!
    But we all know he can't stand Peter Straub! :snicker:

    another good guess is the dude that wrote "Gulliver's travels" He is said to be a raving racist .
    and the guy also that wrote the Wizard of Oz". ranting bigot , they say

    this could be a topic by itself !

    some say that "good writers" are very often "bad humans"
    King has said words to this effect and (I believe ) that this idea is what "Morks" are based on
    (thats from DT-6,7)

    I've got a lot of writer friends on facebook, and to say that some are quirky is an understatement! Even unfriended a couple!

    I have said before , I wrote mr king a snail mail , hand written letter in the hopes that he will someday
    answer this question. A letter back would be great but...I just hope to hear the real name

    Well it's been more then a year, but I will never give up hope.
    I will send him a second snail mail or a third.
    It might be possable that the shared the authors name with Tabby
    And she remembers the name.
    Or one of his kids.
    But I simply can't ask them, it would be rude to my way of thinking

    I will wait.

    I'll be very upfront with you that with all he's got on his to do list, I doubt he'll get back to reading the story so he can try to jog his memory so sending another letter isn't going to make a difference.
