    About "Richard Bachman Stephen King"

      • Richard Bachman Stephen King

        This is a Stephen King pseudonym.At 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 pseudonym.In 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 question 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 question, as he felt he was outed as Bachman too early to know The Bachman book Thinner 1984 sold 28,000 copies during its initial run and then ten times as many when it was revealed that Bachman was, in fact, King.The 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 spot.King 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 1982, 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 1985 of cancer of the pseudonym, a rare form of schizonomia.King dedicated Bachman s early books Rage 1977 , The Long Walk 1979 , Roadwork 1981 , and The Running Man 1982 to people close to him The link between King and his shadow writer was exposed after a Washington, D.C 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 1985 The introduction, titled Why I Was Bachman, details the whole Bachman King story.Source enpedia wiki Richard

    1. RAGE…we’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 po [...]


    2. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/This was a super shorty so there isn’t a whole lot to say without giving the entire thing away. I’ll just leave it as . . . “This,” I said pleasantly, “is known as getting it on.”Yep. Ol’ Charlie’s having a bit of a shit day and to top it all off . . . It probably says something for the state of the universe (or at least the state of my psyche) that this book left me with such a “meh” reaction. I’d blame it on the fact that it was wr [...]


    3. Sad and FrighteningRAGE is the story of a disturbed child.who becomes a disturbed teen.who acts out on his frustrations by taking a hand gun to school his senior year, taking the life of his algebra teacher, and holding his class hostage for several hours. (no spoiler here)In the midst of all the chaos, keeping school officials and police at bay, Charlie shares a few tales of his abusive home life, his encounters with bullies, a sex episode, and strongly requests his captives disclose embarrassi [...]


    4. Charlie Decker takes a room full of his classmates hostage. Will any of them walk out alive?In this Bachman book, Holden Caulfield takes the Breakfast Club hostage with a pistol. At least, that's what the book feels like to me.Rage is a really quick 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 quality wasn't also a contributing factor.Charlie Decker is a bit of [...]


    5. Holy hell, I had no clue what I was getting into with this one. I am a SK lover and King’s earlier Richard Bachman books are some of my favorites. (read The Long Walk and The Running Man if you haven’t) I happened upon this one rather randomly and couldn’t stop reading it. It is out of print, for reasons that will be absolutely clear by the time you are done reading the next paragraph. (SK and his publisher both agreed that it was for the better)Written in 1977, Rage starts of with a bang [...]


    6. Lately 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 more rhymesAnyway, I was sitting in my basement, perusing my collection of books, wondering [...]


    7. After thinking a lot about how to rate and review "Rage", the first novel Stephen King published under his pseudonym Richard Bachman, I still have no clue what to think of this (really short) novel. "Rage" is not available anymore as King decided to take it off the market since it was feared the novel would inspire people to run amok, and due to the socially relevant and interesting subject this novel deals with, I was very interested in reading the actual text. But after finishing it this morni [...]


    8. Finally, I've read this elusive novel!The first thought I had after reading this was: It's a shame this book is no longer in print.The reason it was removed from print, by request 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 print.Given the sensitive nature of the novel, I can certai [...]


    9. I was going to talk about why Rage was taken out of print, but I think plenty has been said on that subject. I side with King on the decision to pull the plug. Stephen King has stated, "The Carneal incident was enough for me. I asked my publisher to take the damned thing out of print. They concurred."Rage is about a deeply disturbed high school student who basically has gone through the ringer of life, short as it has been, and came out broken. Charles Decker is the possibly brilliant young man [...]


    10. Καλόαλλά όχι κάτι ιδιαίτεροΔιαβάζεται πολύ εύκολα κάτι στο οποίο βοηθάει και η πρωτοπρόσωπη αφήγηση αλλά και τα μικρά κεφάλαια αλλά παρόλα αυτάντάξει.δεν με ενθουσίασεούτε κρύο, ούτε ζέστη


    11. Intense…just fucking intense.[Charles Decker, un adolescente desequilibrado que, después de ser expulsado del instituto por agresión a un profesor, vuelve a clase armado con la pistola de su padre y secuestra en un aula a sus 24 compañeros.A partir de ahí, la policía llega al colegio para tratar de liberar a los alumnos pero Charlie no los va a dejar ir. No hasta que él sepa que todo terminó].Wow, de verdad increíble. Cuando comencé a leer “Rabia” no sabía qué esperar.El problem [...]


    12. Though a reasonably good piece for a teenager to have written (apparently King started writing this as a teenager), a lot of immaturity still shows through.Despite the fact that I could not manage to build up any empathy with the main character (the killer) Charlie Decker, Charlie simply seemed too normal in his general thought processes to appear phsychotic. He simply came across as a spoilt, extremely immature kid - a product of the typical syndrome of the military father and over-indulgent mo [...]


    13. This is a coming of rage type of story where the main protagonist is a character that you hear about more and more in todays society. He gives us glimpses in the past, what ticked him off, what made him flip and the people you feel failed him. He is a by-product of society and mans failures. King balances out the seriousness of the story with quite a bit of dark humour. All in all a good read, one that stays with you and makes you think that could be the kid next door."High-school toilets are al [...]


    14. I’m not sure how to review this book, because I liked it and yet I didn’t.It’s a short, quick read and well written considering it’s King’s first book, but I found it unpleasant and bleak. It reminded me a little of Lord of the Flies.The story dragged through the middle and I had to force myself to keep reading. What made it bearable was that I enjoyed the characters, with the exception of Charlie. He just wasn’t believable to me and I had to keep reminding myself that he was a teena [...]


    15. Es el libro que más me estremeció después de Cementerio de animales. Es muy intenso y que esté narrado en primera persona aumenta los escalofríos. Existe un Mr. Hyde para cada feliz rostro de doctor Jekyll, una cara oscura al otro lado del espejo.Es la obra más controvertida de Stephen King por ser usada como inspiración en jóvenes estudiantes para cometer atentados contra sus compañeros en Estados Unidos. Por eso King la retiró del mercado en su edición inglesa. Muchos lo llaman El L [...]


    16. “There's a Mr. Hyde for every happy Jekyll face, a dark face on the other side of the mirror.” Rage is the ultimate in teenage angst, kind of like a more violent, twisted version of 'The Babysitter's Club' because of the morbid teenage bonding that went on inside the classroom. An interesting book, glad I read it. It's not a typical school shooter type of fiction novel - and this alarming plot trope is why King banned publications of this book after that became an unfortunate "in" thing. The [...]


    17. Written under the pseudonym "Richard Bachman" and pulled from the shelves by its author, The Rage is a hard book to nail. Most of the Bachman books are flashier; even Running Man has an explosive finish and makes its social statements more deliberately. And heck, it's hard enough to find a copy. After it was found in the locker of a school shooter, most people dismissed it as violent trash. It isn't.It is the story of a school shooter who takes a classroom hostage, but the violence isn't glorifi [...]


    18. I found this story to be a whole load of MEH. Charlie did not come across as sympathetic to me, the writing felt overdone and tried too hard to be sharp and philosophical at times (‘But my arms were too tired to pull down temples. I was never cut out to be Samson’ - lol okay), and the situation was unrealistic and disturbing. The ending ugh.First one in the Bachman collection down. Things can only get better, right?


    19. 4/10A disappointing read, I was looking forward to this twofold; it’s a King book but also because it has an elusive feel about it with it now no longer being in print. It was taken out of print at King’s request because of some real life High School shootings but I have to wonder if he was also looking at the quality of it and that might have been a factor. Or maybe the Breakfast Club soured his stomach for this sort of thing.It’s a short story yet it took me quite a while to get through [...]


    20. This is a really eye-opening story, and it's really not hard to understand why King would have wanted to pull this from circulation. I'm sure that this story is terrifying in the same way that Misery is terrifying: It could really happen. But this is even worse, because not only is it possible, it's happened. This is close to home. That makes it truly terrifying. But I have to say that the story was less about the fact that Charlie Decker brought a gun to school and used it, and more about who C [...]


    21. I did not enjoy this at all. Charlie Decker is either a completely unsympathetic hero or a really smart ass, arrogant villain. No one in this book reacts the way they actually would if they were trapped in a class with a person who shit two people. As someone who had a gun scare at my school no one remains concerned with popularity and no one feels sympathy or like for the shooter. Everyone comes to like Charlie decker and to dislike the one person who actually does think he is dangerous. Beyond [...]


    22. Μεσα στις 131 σελιδες του κρυβεται η ιστορια του Charlie,ενος μαθητη Λυκειου που μια μερα αποφασιζει να φερει ενα οπλο στο σχολειο και να κρατησει ομηρους ενα τσουρμο συνομηλικους του.Τον κεντρικο μας χαρακτηρα τον συμπαθεις εξ'αρχης.Δεν εινα κακος,το νιωθεις απο τις πρωτες λεξ [...]


    23. Charlie Decker is a disturbed teen and it is clear that the parent child relationship is lacking. Through out the book we get glimpses of a strained home life, that could easily put an awkward teen in stressful situations, and the fact that his parents were distant could be why they didn't care or pay attention to the warning signs. I think in a happier household or one that was more caring, there wouldn't be a story.The characters in this book are very well fleshed out, and feel like real peopl [...]


    24. Una novela polémica que fue retirada por su autor debido a una serie de trágicos sucesos que acontecieron en EEUU. Una historia cruda que habla sobre represión, libertad y que tristemente tras 30 años sigue de actualidad. No es una de las mejores novelas que he leído de King pero retrata de manera magistral el perfil de un psicópata víctima de la represión social.


    25. Read as part of The Bachman Books: Four Early Novels.Story about a high school boy who takes a gun to school and shoots two teachers and hold his class hostage for half a day. The book has been taken out of circulation at SK's request due to several school shootings that were linked to this book. I had a hard time getting a hold of this story but managed to finally get a copy. Charlie is an a**hole and I could not stand him. As a matter of fact, I really did not like this story and I didn't like [...]


    26. Reading again RAGE, twenty years after the first time, I remembered why I am a huge King's admirer. This is a " mind boiling" story.


    27. knizhenjor/2013/10/gniav/Книгите, които са ме афектирали колкото „Гняв” са съвсем малко. Следствие от бавното ми и внимателно четене са редките случаи, когато изчитам роман за ден. Тук достатъчно красноречив е фактът, че след двайсетата страница изключих звука на телефона си и шест ч [...]



    28. RAGEWhile he was a senior in high school Stephen King began a novel called, “Getting It On.” In the intro to a collection called, “The Bachman Books”, (four novels king originally published under the pen name Richard Bachman) King says he found the manuscript moldering away in a box in the basement of his home in 1970. He thought it was worth finishing and he did almost got it published two years before Carrie was finally accepted. Then later, still thinking it was worth publishing he de [...]


    29. Reading challenge 2015: #22 Libro que te asuste"No existe medida de tiempo que exprese la esencia de nuestra vida, que mida el tiempo entre la explosión del plomo en el orificio del cañón y el impacto en la carne, entre el impacto y la oscuridad. Sólo hay una inútil repetición instantánea que no demuestra nada nuevo. Disparé, ella cayó, y se produjo un silencio indescriptible, un lapso infinito, y todos retrocedimos un paso, contemplado cómo la bola daba vueltas y vueltas, saltando, va [...]
