AFP: King vandalizes books

The Raw Story | Horror author King mistaken for vandal in Australian outback: "Best-selling author Stephen King was mistaken for a vandal as he horrified an Australian outback bookstore, local media reported Thursday.

A customer at the store in remote Alice Springs raised the alarm after noticing a man walk in off the street and begin writing in several books, manager Bev Ellis told national radio.

'As the owner of a bookshop, when you see someone writing in one of your books you get a bit toey (touchy),' Ellis said.

'So we immediately ran to the books and lo-and-behold here was the signature in several books. We sort of spun around on our heels, (saying) 'where did he go, where did he go'?'"
