Stephen King pulls Rage from Kindle sales and explains why

I came across a really interesting bit about Stephen King over at GALLEYCATS, one of my fav. blogs.  King recently pulled a Kindle  version of a book called Rage, (written under the Richard Bachman pseudonym) about a boy who takes over a high school class with a gun.  King explains that he didn’t see Rage causing disturbed teens to used guns to solve problems but he does say, “Yet I did see Rage as a possible accelerant, which is why I pulled it from sale. You don’t leave a can of gasoline where a boy with firebug tendencies can lay hands on it.”

Mr. King, in my humble opinion, you are one smart guy in addition to being a top notch writer.

What do you think?
