Blaze, by Richard Bachman (Stephen King)
I've not read it, but there's a "new" Stephen King/Richard Bachman book out. The USA Today has a nice review of it. Perhaps a little too effusive, but I don't mind seeing positive reviews.
I put 'new' in quotes above because the book was written more than thirty years ago and revised recently for publication. For those who don't know, Richard Bachman is the pen name King used for several years to publish some books when he was also publishing Stephen King novels. (God forbid a writer be prolific!) If you ask me, that decision was all about marketing no more than two books during a year by the same authorl It wasn't that the public couldn't handle it; the publishers didn't want to compete against themselves.
