first edition


by Richard Bachman Stephen King (1977)

Description: First Edition. This First Edition, First Printing of Rage is an excellent example of the first of the Bachman works. Rage is the first of four books written by King that were published between 1977 and 1982 under the name Richard Bachman. The others are Rage (1977), The Long Walk (1979), and Roadwork (1981). King created Richard Bachman to be his long-term alias, not just a temporary writing identity, but his real name was leaked to the media. He based The Dark Half, a horror novel published in 1989, on the outing of Bachman.. Published by Signet 1977 Fair Condition.
