Many Stephen King fans won't know in 1972 King published one story under the pseudonym John Swithen. It was in the April issue of Cavalier. My math tells me Mr King was only 25 years old at the time.

Twenty one years later it did appear in Nightmares and Dreamscapes.

When my wife Suzanne handed him the magazine, he smiled and showed Owen. Here a couple of photos of the night and the magazine.

He signed it Stephen King (AKA John Swithen).

That's realy neat, thanks for sharing. I'm guessing he was there to help Owen promote his book?

This is from the night...about 6 minutes long and some funny stuff once they get going.

That was pretty neat. You could see Owen is not nearly as comfortable as his dad on stage.
