Overview

Once the mighty fortress had stood strong, defended by the mightiest of all Drenai heroes, Druss, the Legend. But now a tyrannical, mad emperor had seized control of the fortress, and his twisted will was carried throughout the land by the Joinings —- abominations that were half-man, half-beast. Tenaka Khan was a half-breed himself, hated by the Drenai for his Nadir blood and despised by the Nadir for his Drenai ancestry. But he alone had a plan to destroy the emperor. The last heroes of the Drenai joined with him in a desperate gamble to bring down the emperor — even at the cost of their own destruction.

I just bought David Gemmell's "The King Beyond the Gate" To find the first 32 Pages are from "Thinner," which is a Stephen King book under the name Richard Bachman. I wouldn't care but when it gets to Gemmell's writing is starts 25 pages into the story near the end of chapter two. I was wondering if anyone else has run into this problem.
