The name on the covers was Bachman. But the imagination could only belong to one man: Stephen King.
Wentworth, Ohio: a small friendly town where the Carver children bicker over sweets in the E-Z shop and writer Johnny Marinville is the only resident who minds his own business.
On Poplar Street, apart from the impending storm, it's just a normal summer's day - with Frisbees flying, lawn mowers humming and barbeques grilling. As the paperboy makes his round, he is unaware of the chrome red van idling up the hill . . .
Soon the residents will be caught up in a game of wills as the regulators arrive in force to face a child whose powers of expression are just awakening.
If you like THE REGULATORS, don't miss DESPERATION, written as an unidentical pair.
