Stephen King

Interesting article on Stephen King, which I forgot to post about when I first read it:

Wall Street Journal

Some of the more interesting parts:

When he left his publisher, Viking, 14 years ago, he traded gargantuan advances for his current deal with Scribner, granting him much smaller advances and roughly half of the profits. In another unusual move, Mr. King leases his titles to publishers, typically for a period of 15 years, rather than selling them.
