"The Regulators" by Richard Bachman

An evil creature called Tak uses the imagination of an autistic boy to shift a
residential street in small-town Ohio into a world so bizarre and brutal that
only a child could think it up. It's as two-dimensional and gaudy as a kid's
comic book, but for this reviewer, The Regulators is a gripping adventure tale
about what happens when a mind fixated on TV (especially old Westerns and a
cartoon called MotoKops 2200) runs amok.

This is not a book I would of picked up on my own. It was my first Stephen
King book. I read it with a yahoo reading group. I am so glad it was choosen
for the group and Im really glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and read it!
It was a bit gory detailed but I would read something else by King if the mood
struck me. He writes a great story!
