Stephen King’s email has been hacked.
An anonymous hacker has contacted ha.ckerne.ws with information and emails that confirm: Stephen King has a staff of writers who have been writing his books for the last nineteen years.
The hundreds of emails between Stephen King and his various business and personal contacts have revealed years of books written by a veritable army of ghost writers, which King and Verrill alternately call the “writers workshop,” the “sweat shop,” or the “writing team.”
While it has long been suspected that no author could be as prolific as Stephen King, this is the first time any evidence has been found to prove that King no longer writes his own work. As alluded to in one email with Verrill, this “sweat shop” has been responsible for every one of King’s works of the last 19 years.
Photos from the “sweat shop” were also found within the emails.
Here is the most recent email chain between King and Verrill, in which they discuss plans for King’s next book: (skip headers)

Here are some of the photos of the “writing team”:
After repeated calls and emails to Stephen King’s Bangor office, we still have yet to get a reply.
