King's pseudonym

Post by k9mommy » Tue Feb 14, 2012 1:15 pm

Long time reader first time posting.
Did you know that our Mr.King has more than one ( 1 ) pseudonym?
Not only did he write under the name of Richard Bachman but he also wrote under the pen name of " JOHN SWITHEN " .
After years of searching I finally got my hands on a copy.

Congratulations! It's kind of hard to find a decent copy of "The Fifth Quarter".

Huh, well you learn something new every day. I wasn't aware of another pseudonym for King. Here's the Wikipedia about the story.

John Swithen

My news is a bit late but since acquiring my John Swithen " The Fifth Quarter " I had it sign by King in Oct 2013 in Toronto.
He was very surprise to see it and started to tell his son Owen the story about the how and when.
I had a nice visit with him.

John Swithen.

I just realize that my husband had put a picture or two of me and my magazine.
His name is trueNorth.
