Tony Gangi notified me that Stephen King put my Carny Lingo Dictionary site in the 'Acknowledgements' of his new book JOYLAND. (I would never have known otherwise). Went and bought a copy today, and gosh darn it, it's TRUE! A lengthy graf with generous comments about my site and my e-book ON THE MIDWAY, and a seven-word sentence thanking his editor, and that's it! (They say billing is everything, and that's almost as good as name-above-the-title ... almost ... sorta .. isn't it?).

Sweet! What's you're cut of the profits?

At the very least you should get a signed copy! Ill send you one over. Sure It won't be worth anything signed by me .....but you will be able to say 'I have a signed copy'! Smile

Seriously they should send you a gratis signed one! If not ....get in your truck and hunt him down!

Glad to see he's doing research.
Wonder if he ever found out how to shift a '58 Plymouth automatic into low.
One of the last living 10-in-one performers. I wanted to be in show business the worst way, and that was it.

In the 70's a circus book called "MUDSHOW" came out....It had several comments about me and a photo... I got a signed copy AFTER writing the publishing company a nice letter THANKING them for including me and requested a SIGNED copy for my collection....

I worked for Stephen for 6 years, the last two of which I was Operations Manager of WZON-AM in Bangor, Maine. I remember when he and Tabby lived in trailer in Orrington. Couldn't pay their phone bill! When I last spoke to him, he was worth some 20 million. That was 20-some years ago. Boy...I never would have dreamed he be such a celebrity. Ha! Neither would he!
