My first SK novel was Desperation, it was coincidently also my first adult book, by that I mean it was the first book I'd read that was written for adults. I was about ten I think, I remember just randomly finding it in the cupboard one day after school. To this day I have no idea how it got in the house or where it came from, neither does anyone else in my family {cue the The X-Files theme} :laugh: It was a hardcover with no jacket, but I was curious and decided to give it a go.

It hooked me in almost immediately, I remember wanting to know what happened next so much that I finished the whole thing in two days. ;-D

Interesting that your first book was by Richard Bachman. Maybe by that point he had come out of the closet and “fessed up”?

The Colorado Kid
Walmart had a stand of paperbacks so I grabbed one. Read it... loved..... been a fan ever since.
I recently watched an episode of Haven - first they showed a little kid in a yellow raincoat with dark hair and glasses (looked like a young Stephen King) chasing a paper boat down the street. It goes into the sewer; the kid sticks his hand and arm in the grate...etc., then next thing you know frogs are falling out of the sky like rain. Have you even seen this show? It is loosely based on the book Colorado Kid.
