    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:

    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....

    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.

    Scribner published Blaze but the other book Hard Case Crimes published was The Colorado Kid.

    Your pug has not been moving for me in months. I don't mind. :)
    (It does if you click on it, though.)

    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.

    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.

    Oh, that doesn't bother me at all, old man! :frog:
    It's really more of a matter of not remembering what half of the SK books are about without going to Wikipedia to refresh my memory! That's just the way I've always been.
