Stephen King publishes Thinner

Thinner is a 1984 novel by Stephen King, published under his pseudonym, Richard Bachman.

It would be the last novel which King released under the Richard Bachman pseudonym until the release of The Regulators in 1996 (the initial hardcover release of Thinner included a fake jacket photo of "Bachman"). The novel was adapted for the screenplay of a 1996 film of the same title.
