I'm not sure what you are referring to, Boni.
In Hard Listening there are a few "short stories" written by the RBR guys and we're supposed to guess which one was written by Stephen.

It turns out to be this one (The Rock and Roll Dead Zone), about Stephen himself arriving at home to meet an annoying childhood friend. My question is if it was all fiction or if everything he wrote really happened (or at least to some degree), if The Gooch (the friend) exists, etc... etc...

Oic. I hadn't read them yet. I'd forgotten that Hard Listening was the title of that collection.

When I read excerpts of those 4 stories, I picked the one I thought was Stephen's wrong. A couple times. When I actually got to read the whole stories, it was easy to see which one was Stephen's.
