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.

Pynchon the butt, to let her know she's doing a good job.

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.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Shit, it was this:

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.

So when he realized he was never gonna get published as Pattinson, he decided take of the mask.

AH, but Hooks, it's PATTISON.. no "t"

*edit* HAHAHA, He wrote dirty poems in 18th cent London, and died at age 21.

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.

Here is the article from which Matey's image came. If you are interested in a summary of the book. God, I want to read it now.
