I don't see any pug. WTH is going on with my computer tonight?
I dunno - I was trying to change my avatar and all kinds of weird things were happening so I just went back to the same old pug, even if he is now standing still!

And yeah - now it appears to be blank :facepalm_smiley::dunno:

There's no law that states that you can only have one of each title of King books in your possession.......just sayin'. :dbl: I have duplicates of almost every one.
Yep, same here. I have at least one hardcover and at least one paperback copy of each book. I love the new mass market paperback artwork for the books, too, so it looks like I'll soon start collecting those....

Well, I thought Blaze was an unexpectedly touching and beautiful piece of work, so I figured mebbe the cancer of the pseudonym got to Bachman and he was kinda mellowing out a bit before the Reaper came calling.
I'll defend you and say that Joyland definitely has a Bachman vibe to it. In addition, it was published by Hard Case Crimes, the house that published Blaze, so it sort of makes sense.

I think Bachman really died with The Running Man. Mr. King's style, particularly in his embrace of darkness, may have changed a bit over the years, but it is still recognizably the same man who wrote the early King books. Early Bachman is a notably different style, but he couldn't keep it up for long. There's a reason that Thinner marked the publishing end of that pseudonym. I remember reading it and being very sure it was Mr. King, and I was only a kid (17). Had he published Misery as Bachman, there would be no question. Every writer has tics, things that carry through from story to story, that are as identifiable as a retinal scan. The Regulators is ugly and nasty, and I personally don't like it at all, but it's recognizably King.
