Stephen King has always wanted to publish a story with the last thirty pages simply left out..
This is something i have read in Stephen King’s introduction to « THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE » (Stephen King Horror Library) :
« I have always wanted to publish a novel with the last thirty pages simply left out. The reader would be mailed these final pages by the publisher upon receipt of a satisfactory summary of everything that had happened in the story up to that point. That would certainly put a spoke in the wheels of those people WHO TURN TO THE END TO SEE HOW IT CAME OUT »
