Me, my wife LeeAnn, son Trey, and the Overlook shipper, Gene, will be attending the official premiere which is this week at the Alliance. I'm really looking forward to seeing this extravaganza after hearing about it for over a decade. Some early customer reviews are in (one Florida fellow saw it a second time on a last minute whim because he said it was that good!) and so far it's been a thumbs up. I've only read positive reactions from fans and critics alike, so I think we're in for a treat this week.
If you see the show by all means e-mail me with your reviews and thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post some of your lines here and on our facebook account. If you'd like to post on our facebook account, by all means do so! We'd love to hear from you.
I know that most won't get to see the show, but there will be some media coming soon for everyone to enjoy. We're working on it now and I'll be in touch with more updates on that.

=== STEPHEN KING is RICHARD BACHMAN by Michael Collings
This is the whole story of how Stephen Kings Richard Bachman came to life, and when King finally had to give up the ghost and come forth with the truth that he was writing under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman. This of course came about when the fifth novel, Thinner, was released and a reader discovered Kings pseudonym.
Now Michael Collings takes us from the beginnings of this unusual fiction side-show of Stephen Kings body of work, to what we thought would be the last Bachman release, The Regulators.

=== KING of BANGOR by Lee Gambin
By Fangoria writer Lee Gambin,
THE KING OF BANGOR.
By Lee Gambin.
About Stephen King.
A wonderful look into the thin line that divides reality from illusion, The King of Bangor is an unsettling tale of what can happen when creation surpasses creator. --Heather Bloom, AustralianStage.com
Although marketed to horror fans this play does have broader appeal. It is insightful, surprisingly funny at points and delightfully inter-textual. It is not a comfortable place to be sitting as Stephen King at his typewriter, but it sure is an absolute pleasure to sit in the audience and watch as both the play and his sanity unfold. --theatre-of-words.blogspot.com
For long time King fans or those mostly unfamiliar with the author s work, King of Bangor grabs the viewer pulling them through a psychological journey of creativity. --All Star Comics, Melbourne
OVERVIEW: In oppressive darkness, successful novelist Stephen King sits on his throne mapping out a new story of the macabre. But there is a problem; he's stuck. Writer's block has set in. But soon familiar voices offer advice and King begins to type: the flow comes and goes just as distractions and inspirations surface - then disappear then reappear. Real life begins to merge with his creative stream of consciousness and his creations start to mirror and comment on his own existence in a terrifying downward spiral. This is the script of an original Play by Lee Gambin.
