Here’s an essay http://www.bookstove.com/Book-Talk/The-Life-Death-and-Afterlife-of-Richard-Bachman.34051 I’ve written on Stephen King’s alter-ego, Richard Bachman.
I wrote the essay because I was intrigued by the way Bachman evolved from being a simple pseudonym into a semi-living person with his own life and death and posthumous ‘story’; his own biography that was carefully constructed/ invented/ created by King; and finally, his own bibliography.
Books by Richard Bachman:
The Long Walk
The Running Man
In many ways, Richard Bachman is Stephen King’s most fully realised character.
I hope you enjoy reading the essay as much as I enjoyed writing it.
