Alright, Now Somebody Write "A," by Stephen Dedalus
According to the Guardian, this guy Phil Buehler was bored over Christmas, so he typed up eighty pages of Jack Torrance's novel from Stephen King's "The Shining" and self-published it.

The novel is the phrase "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" repeated over and over again for hundreds of pages in different typesets.

"The idea has probably been marinating for years, because I loved the movie and the Stephen King book," said Buehler.

You can buy the book here.

Even Stephen King's fictional characters get published. His kid, his wife, his other kid, that guy Dean Koontz.

Maybe it's not even possible to be an unaffiliated American writer until King dies.

Somebody chopped up Standard Oil with an ax once, too, and for awhile, we could all afford to drive.


Note: You shouldn't chop up Stephen King with an ax. You should METAPHORICALLY chop up Stephen King with the METAPHORICAL ax of your good writing, HONED by hard work and SHARPENED by imagination.

He lives in Maine.
