review Rage author Richard Bachman Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Stephen King pseudonymAt the beginning of Stephen King's career the general view among publishers was that an author was limited to one book per year since publishing would be unacceptable to the public King therefore wanted to write under another name in order to increase his publication without over saturating the market for the King brand He convinced his publisher Signet Books to print these novels under a pseudonymIn his introduction to The Bachman Books King states that adopting the nom de plume Bachman was also an attempt to make sense out of his career and try to answer the uestion of whether his success was due to talent or luck He says he deliberately released the Bachman novels with as little marketing presence as possible and did his best to load the dice against Bachman King concludes that he has yet to find an answer to the talent versus luck uestion as he felt he was outed as Bachman too early to know The Bachman book Thinner sold copies during its initial run—and then ten times as many when it was revealed that Bachman was in fact KingThe pseudonym King originally selected Gus Pillsbury is King's maternal grandfather's name but at the last moment King changed it to Richard Bachman Richard is a tribute to crime author Donald E Westlake's long running pseudonym Richard Stark The surname Stark was later used in King's novel The Dark Half in which an author's malevolent pseudonym George Stark comes to life Bachman was inspired by Bachman–Turner Overdrive a rock and roll band King was listening to at the time his publisher asked him to choose a pseudonym on the spotKing provided biographical details for Bachman initially in the about the author blurbs in the early novels Known facts about Bachman were that he was born in New York served a four year stint in the Coast Guard which he then followed with ten years in the merchant marine Bachman finally settled down in rural central New Hampshire where he ran a medium sized dairy farm writing at night His fifth novel was dedicated to his wife Claudia Inez Bachman who also received credit for the bogus author photo on the book jacket Other facts about the author were revealed in publicity dispatches from Bachman's publishers the Bachmans had one child a boy who died in an unfortunate Stephen King ish type accident at the age of six when he fell through a well and drowned In a brain tumour was discovered near the base of Bachman's brain; tricky surgery removed it After Bachman's true identity was revealed later publicity dispatches and about the author blurbs revealed that Bachman died suddenly in late of cancer of the pseudonym a rare form of schizonomiaKing dedicated Bachman's early books— Rage The Long Walk Roadwork and The Running Man —to people close to him The link between King and his shadow writer was exposed after a Washington DC bookstore clerk Steve Brown noted similarities between the writing styles of King and Bachman Brown located publisher's records at the Library of Congress which included a document naming King as the author of one of Bachman's novels Brown wrote to King's publishers with a copy of the documents he had uncovered and asked them what to do Two weeks later King telephoned Brown personally and suggested he write an article about how he discovered the truth allowing himself to be interviewed King has taken full ownership of the Bachman name on numerous occasions as with the republication of the first four Bachman titles as The Bachman Books Four Early Novels by Stephen King in The introduction titled Why I Was Bachman details the whole BachmanKing storySource.

    review Rage author Richard Bachman Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Rage author Richard BachmRAGEwe’ve all experienced it whether bumper to bumper on the roads interacting with ass stains at work or railing against the evils of beachfront development Here Stephen King explores the darkest aspect of this emotion and strikes a chord that can be felt by anyone who remembers the awkwardness the insecurity the anger inducing turbulence of being a teenager King taps a mighty strong vein in this one Originally entitled Getting It On this early effort of the master while less polished and containing technical flaws than his later work is one of his most visceral and striking psychological stories This is Catcher in the Rye meets American Psycho and it is made all the eerie by the echoes and reflections of real life high school shootings that this story is sure to conjure in the mind of the reader PLOT SUMMARYA deeply troubled high school senior Charlie Decker shoots and kills two teachers and takes his Algebra class hostage This all happens fas

    review Rage author Richard Bachman Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Rage author Richard BachmIt has been conclusively proved that there is no gravity; the earth just sucksRage was a book before it's time One of King's earliest books and the first released under the Bachman pseudonym It's a look into the troubled mind of a teenager; a story that is really close to home for many now but was very far fetched when it first came out Now due to the rash of school shootings and calls to end bullying over the past couple of decades the story sounds eerily familiarI have heard that after a few school shootings a copy of this book was found in the lockers of the shooters Because of this the book is no longer in print per King's reuest If you want to read it your best chance is to find and early copy of the collected Bachman Books at your library or a used book store I am guessing that finding a copy of this book by itself would reuire a trip to

    review Rage author Richard Bachman Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Rage author Richard BachmCharlie Decker takes a room full of his classmates hostage Will any of them walk out aliveIn this Bachman book Holden Caulfield takes the Breakfast Club hostage with a pistol At least that's what the book feels like to meRage is a really uick read short and to the point It's also not that great King can say he wanted it out of print because of all the school shootings in the last couple decades but I have to wonder if uality wasn't also a contributing factorCharlie Decker is a bit of a outcast and has a whole dresser drawer full of issues His classmates seemingly normal aren't without problems themselves John Hughes at gunpoint is a good way to describe most of what goes on in the book If snipers were watching the windows of the library in the Breakfast Club Rage is probably what the result would be likeI don't have a lot to say about this one The ending was unexpected I'll give BachmanKing that Other than that I'm glad it was short 2 stars I hope this doesn't lead to St

    review Rage author Richard Bachman Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Rage author Richard BachmLately I've been wondering about why violence seems to breed so freely in the United States I don't have an answer by the way Everywhere I seem to look there is something violent being portrayed books movies music art heck even CNN is going to do a new segment on Cold Cases that they have deemed so interesting that further exploration is needed Tupac and Biggie here's your chance to spin a few rhymesAnyway I was sitting in my basement perusing my collection of books wondering what to read next when The Bachman Books caught my eye I took it down from the shelf and flipped through the pages wafting to my nostrils old dust motes caught within the yellowed pages that have traveled with me from place to place over the years then I started to read the first story Rage The title alone was enough to get me hyped I mean

    review Rage author Richard Bachman Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Rage author Richard BachmFinally I've read this elusive novelThe first thought I had after reading this was It's a shame this book is no longer in printThe reason it was removed from print by reuest from Stephen King himself is because the novel was found in the locker of Michael Carneal a bullied boy who opened fire on students at Heath High School in 1997 Under the assumption that the book partly inspired the school shooting the book was pulled from printGiven the sensitive nature of the novel I can certainly understand King's decision to stop its print However after I read the novel I was very surprised to find it was nothing I had expected it to be In
