The Top-Selling Horror Story In Australia…

Is a book called “The Signing”

Author Stephen King was mistaken for a vandal when he started signing books during an unannounced visit to a shop in Australia, according to local media.
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation said staff at the Alice Springs book store did not initially realise the writer was autographing his own novels.
Bookshop manager Bev Ellis said: “When you see someone writing in one of your books you get a bit toey [nervous].

I would like to thank the Beeb for translating the Australian for us, as well; I fear had I asked some folks what that meant I might have gotten a somewhat different answer.

    So Stephen King’s had plastic surgery recently, or something?
    I mean – I’ve never even read anything of his *I* know what he looks like….
    (And no, it’s not because I’m “too good” for Stephen King; it’s because I read right before bed and I’m too afraid that his stories would creep the hell out of me and I wouldn’t sleep…)
