Overlook Connection Press is going to release an updated and completely revised edition of Michael Collings book Stephen King is Richard Bachman. Here is a description of the book:

This is the whole story of how Stephen King's 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 King's pseudonym.

Now Michael Collings takes us from the beginnings of this unusual fiction side show of Stephen King's body of work, to what we understand will be the last Bachman release, "The Regulators." Or will it?

Updated and completely revised with new information and Richard Bachman releases since it's original publication almost 20 years ago.
