Stephen King defaces, er signs, books in bookstore

The prolific horror author was caught by a customer in an Alice Springs (Australia) bookstore, putting pen to page on six copies of his newest book, The Cell.

The customer went straight to management and explained that some jerk was wrecking the books. Turns out the manager had an idea that it might be Stephen King himself, and had her suspicions confirmed when she met the author in the produce section of a local grocery store.

When asked if it was the first time an author had simply come in a started signing,the store manager replied: “They don’t normally just open the books and go for it.”

The signed Stephen King books will be donated to various charities concerned with literature.
