What you don't realize is that Jeffrey Cooper was an alias for Thomas Pynchon. Freddy goes in a whole 'nother place.
He'd better be talented to sew those three stories together, as part 3 is pretty much a sequel to part one, and 2 doesn't really follow the mythos. :shifty:
That's why you need a postmodernist writer like Pynchon.

I bought a Friday the 13th book once. I just remember he kills a kid with a flamethrower which seemed cool when I was 11.

That cover combined the two things I loved at the time: rollercoasters and shitty horror franchises.

Eric Morse was the nom de plume of Norman Mailer. (I would love to learn that all kinds of highly regarded writers knocked out these kinds of books for the fuck of it. John Updike's got nothing to do, so he bangs out a Sweet Valley High novel in a weekend.)

What's the point of a fake name when you aren't famous and both your real and fake names are quite ordinary?

William Pattinson didn't want fans of his torture porn fiction to find out he wrote schlocky horror.

edit: I checked openlibrary and worldcat and couldn't find anything by William Pattinson, so, yeah, keep your identities distinct Dr. Anonymous.

Shit. Okay, there was an 18th-century writer by that name—was he a time traveller?!?!—but over 500 entries and I ain't going thru them all. Let's just say it was Norman Mailer.
