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....There's no law that states that you can only have one of each title of King books in your possession.......just sayin'. I have duplicates of almost every one.
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.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.
Scribner published Blaze but the other book Hard Case Crimes published was The Colorado Kid.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 always forget this was published as Bachman. I personally love this book and for all the reasons I love classic SK books. That is probably why I don't associate it at all with Bachman.The Regulators is ugly and nasty, and I personally don't like it at all, but it's recognizably King.
Oh, that doesn't bother me at all, old man!Senior moment? Don't even get mad 'cause we are the same age.
