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, law 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...

Richard Bachman is really Stephen King, and The Regulators is a kind of companion novel to Desperation, which was published simultaneously. These books mark the return of the Stephen King of old; the Stephen King of The Stand and Pet Sematary, where good and evil were at war and blood and gore flowed through the pages. The companion novels center around a new personification of evil that goes by the name of Tak, unearthed by an evil mining company that's destroying the earth in the name of profit. In each, the characters and situations are altered as King plays with questions of identity and form. But the real point here is what's on Tak's mind? Does it want to "Eat pork rinds? . . . Screw some NFL cheerleaders? . . . Rule the earth?"About the Author:
In his 'lifetime', Richard Bachman published five novels. A sixth, THE REGULATORS, was published after he died of pseudonym cancer 'a relatively painless way to go' in 1985. He developed a cult following both before and after his death. Two of his novels 'THINNER and THE RUNNING MAN' were made into motion pictures. BLAZE--both brutal and sensitive--is his final legacy. The last of the Bachman novels, written in 1973 and published for the first time. Stephen King's 'dark half' may have saved the best for last.
