King also wrote Rage under the pen name Richard Bachman. Thinner was the final book that King wrote as Bachman, and therefore the one that everyone figured out it was him. I've heard recently that he intended to release Misery as a Bachman book before he was caught. This was his attempt to make Richard Bachman a "household name." He felt that his previous success as Stephen King could have been a fluke and by becoming popular again, would prove to himself that he was, in fact, a good writer.

The idea for 'The Dark Half' came when Steven King quit using the pen name Richard Bachman. They had a 'funeral' for Richard and everything. Same as the author (name escapes me) in 'The Dark Half' Then he considered what might happen if that pen name came back, so to speak.

Look at the beginning of the Regulators theres is a big long preface by King explaining why he brought Bachman back from the dead and he makes several references to the Dark Half, he said that he wanted to get out his conflicting reasons, I'm disgusted with any "King fan" who didn't know he was Bachman

It says at the beginning of the Bachman book that RB's wife found the book in the attic and asked SK to complete and publish it as RB wanted. Also can't quite remember but there may have been something about more to come from RB/SK

Peter Straub is a separate author; although, they did write The Talisman together. The Regulators was also written under the name Richard Bachman.

Has anyone else noticed the connection of "Secret Window, Secret Garden" from Four Past Midnight to this whole pseudonym situation?

About thinner. there was a write up on it by a book reviewer when it first came out. i cat remeber who they guy was or who he worked for but, he said in the review. that Thinner is the kind of book Stephen king would write if he was a good author. a short time later SK revealed he was backman.

A Fellow Traveller - peter wilson is right, it is in Thinner, when BH is losing all that weight, that he says its just like a stephen king story. Twice he mentions it (have just finished reading it)

Richard Bachman not only uses the pen name (Stephen King) he also goes by John Swithen.

peter wilson you may be wrong about your comment on thinner i think the phrase "its like a stephen king novel" is used in the dead zone.can you reference?

... and Thad Beaumont's alter-ego was George Stark. SK comments in the notes at the end of Nightmares and Dreamscapes that maybe his short story "The Fifth Quarter" was the work of Mr Stark! He's a sly one.

I thought this forum was for Easter Eggs about an author? Not commonly known knowledge that just about ANYONE (even non-fans) knows???? Can we get back to basics? Anyone find any eggs in F-13?? By the Way :He didn't get CAUGHT writing as Richard. He publicized it...check out news archived anywhere in the country....

No kidding, I think everyone knows that. But it's okay, I really believed there was a Richard Bachman until I was like thirteen, then someone told me in.

Mr King even hints that he wrote Thinner. If you've read the book you'll remember the line that says it's starting to sound like a Stephen King story.

The running man by richard Bachman. Better than the film by arnie eh? No comparison . Remake the film I say. With out arnie. I reckon an unknown should play the lead. Make it more exciting for thoses who don't know the story. We all know that big stars rarely die at the end.
