Trivia: Rage

The game:

The book:

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Both the original novel and the omnibus collection (The Bachman Books) that it was part of are out of print. However "The Bachman Books" has been released as an e-book, Rage is not available as a stand alone book.
  • Old Shame: Subverted by King. He's not ashamed that he wrote the book, but he did request it be pulled out of print because of a handful of school hostage situations and shootings that were inspired by it. He's simply realistic and understandably feels that preserving the full integrity of his writing isn't worth the lives people who were inspired by the book have taken.
