I enjoyed this article from my friends at club Stephen King about Richard Bachman. The website is in French, but both google and Bing will translate it just fine. So here's something cool I didn't know:
In 1994, nine years after his death, when his widow was preparing to move, she discovered a box of manuscript in the basement.It contained a number of novels and short stories, more or less finalized. The most complete was a novel called regulators . Claudia took the manuscript to the former editor Richard Bachman , Charles Verrill, who found that the book was a continuation of his previous books. After a few minor changes and with the permission of the widow Bachman (now Claudia Eschelman) Regulators was published in September 1996, and in October of the same year, the novel skin and bones became a Paramount film Pictures. [At the same time that the output Regulators , Stephen King published Desolation novel protanogistes comprising the same, but a different story. Similarly, the book covers are set side by side full artwork.]
A limited edition of Regulators was published by Dutton and each copy has a check signed by Bachman before his death.
Check out the entire website, it's a lot of fun. club-stephenking
