This item:The Regulators by Richard Bachman ( LI CHA BA HE MAN . King limited himself to what the people could do. Yes, he has written other stories that are confined to one spot like in The Shinning, but that worked because of the story there.

Thinking of Jim Thompson and Sam Peckinpah: Legendary shadows. She also has no idea when this novel was written, although she suspects it must have been late at night. Richard Bachman suffered from chronic insomnia.

Richard Bachman is a pen name used by horror fiction author Stephen King. At the beginning of Stephen King's career, the general view among publishers was that an author was limited to one book per year, since publishing more would be unacceptable to the public. He convinced his publisher, Signet Books, to print these novels under a pseudonym.

The Regulators is a novel by American author Stephen King, writing under the pseudonym Richard Bachman. It was published in 1996 at the same time as its "mirror" novel, Desperation. The two novels represent parallel universes relative to one another, and most of the characters present in one novel's world also exist in the other novel's reality, albeit in different circumstances

The Bachman Books is a collection of short novels by Stephen King published under the pseudonym Richard Bachman between 1977 and 1982. It made The New York Times Best Seller List upon its release in 1985.

But Stephen King had NOT had his accident when he wrote The Regulators. Stephen King is well known for marketing gimmickry, pushing the envelope in the publishing business. The accident would have been 3 years in the future. At first it was through using brand names without permission. Then it was the alternate ego, Richard Bachman, followed by the serial novel (Green Mile) and now it is a "dual novel. Frankly, I don't think it worked this time. I just couldn't get the parallel between the two books/settings.

Stephen King is hands-down my favorite author. This is the only work of King/Bachman fiction I couldn't force myself to at least finish. There was a period in the mid-90's where Mr King started to draw out suspense to almost unbearable lengths, ruining the fast pacing for which his best (earlier) work was known. This novella is the worst example of that. Page after page of prose will pass by the readers eyes with only a few seconds in the book's universe having passed, and very little having happened in the way of advancing the story. More plainly stated, King manages to take a great story concept and a series of plot developments violent enough to rival a 1950's true crime novel, and makes them pretty boring. Even worse, the tendency toward the verbose and seemingly endless self examination is taking place not in some 1000 page masterpiece novel, but in what is basically an inflated short story. I couldn't get through it. Having said that, the book still gets 3 stars, because the worst work of one of the best occult/horror authors of our time is still not that bad. There are no unforgivable sins here. This story just needed an editor to prune it down into the kind of short story found in Night Shift or Skeleton Crew.

I did say that Desperation is my favorite book, and I do know this book is better out of the two. Yes, Stephen King did write this book and Desperation in conjunction with one another. The story of this one has a slightly better flow to it, and it actually scared me more than Desperation. I don’t know if I mentioned it before, but evil kids in horror movies or books is what gets me. Only dolls scare me more.

The Ugly: Even though this book is a decent one out of all his books, there are flaws. The biggest flaw that came with this book was changing Johnny. His don’t care attitude from Desperation really carried the book. Making him a sentimental person didn’t really help this book at all.

The Bad: Confining the story to a single street. What made Desperation good was that it was in a small town. There were more places for the characters to go. In this one, they were confined to a small street that had maybe eight houses and a convenience store on it. King limited himself to what the people could do. Yes, he has written other stories that are confined to one spot like in The Shinning, but that worked because of the story there. It may be that I am comparing this to Desperation too much, but that is just how I feel.

The Good: I mentioned it above. Kids scare me in books like this. Not only that, but the backstory for everyone, with exception to Johnny’s, was much better here. Going into detail on why everyone was there and how the Seth become Tak worked so well together.

Final Thoughts: The contrast between what Tak to Collie and what it did to Seth was so different that it worked so well together. That alone, making it so much more of a wider universe and what the entities of the worlds are capable of doing. I guess you could say that is the reason I think this book is better than the connected one, even though I like the other one more. Still though, this is just a book everyone needs to read.

Can't beat The King. A bit on the Goodness me side, but I loved every twist and turn. A masterful piece of writing, but I would expect nothing less. On a fun note, I will never be able to open up another can of Chef Boy-R-Dee again.

This is the prequel to Desperation. Read The Regulators BEFORE reading Desperation. Desperation will make much more sense after reading The Regulators. It is really neat how the dust Jackets of the two books match up to make a panoramic picture. If you like Stephen King (he is Richard Bachman) you will like both of these books.

I am a huge fan. This was different than the book "Desperation" but not very. The characters were the same, but the wheres the whos and the hows are different. Didnt matter really which book i read first. Super Creepy, exactly as expected. Loved it.

I read this right after reading "Desperation", which was an insanely awesome book. The Regulators uses some of the characters from Desperation which I found a great twist. The Regulators grabs you in the first few pages and it's hard to put down. The twists,turns, and surprises are fantastic. It was a "different" world you escape into while reading this. SK has such a great imagination and used it to his full ability in this book. You feel as if you are really on Poplar Street!!!

Once again, evil befalls a select group of innocent people. In this case, it takes place in the suburbs of Wentworth, Ohio. The entity, Tak, who was granted new life from an old abandoned mine in Desperation Nevada, is back.
And, when Tak is back, there is hell on earth. So is the reality, displaced and altered to accommodate the visuals of an autistic boy named Seth. In the course of a few hours, Tak strives to act out a western movie and "wipe this town off the map." As Tak plans and begins to act out his strategy, the neighbors on the block of Poplar Street watch in horror as everything around them turns into an old desert mining town, complete with the chinese laundry, log cabins and hitching posts. Then the life size toy vans drive through and unleash their barrage at the stricken neighborhood. Remarkably, oddly constructed animals and signs sprout up and it reminds everyone of a first grader's attempt at drawings come alive.
How to stop it, how to confine Tak? Tak literally feeds off the souls of dead, sucking their life energy and making him stronger. Yet he is trapped in the body of a 7 year old, and can only physically accomplish what the 7 year old can do. In his frustration, he attempts to move on, but finds that Seth, the 7 year old autistic child has reached deep inside his own malfunctioning brain to change Tak's course forever.

I am a big SK fan, and had read Desperation some time ago... This book starts out so good, but just gets stupider -and stupider -and stupider.....and it drags and drags and drags....I had to MAKE myself read to the end, hoping it would get better.....it did NOT... a total waste of my time..
