He is a man who profoundly hates dogs. So much so that he brags he still loves Lyndon Johnson "for picking up his beagles by their ears and swinging them around while the dogs bayed." Up there with the very holiest rituals in his life is a daily afternoon nap. His books have been trashed by reviewers in some of the country's most respected journals.

"Thou Shalt Not Park," says the chaste sign that stands at the edge of a field next to the Prince of Peace Chapel in Aspen. The church fits comfortably into the Colorado mountains. It is made of wood and glass and has a handsome stained-glass window behind the altar. A porch wraps around the chapel, leading to the front door and handing you a post-card view of mountain scenery just as you walk into the building.

The Lord sent such seasonable showers ... as through his blessing caused a fruitful and liberal harvest ... For which mercie, they sent aside a day of Thanksgiving. So wrote William Bradford, one of the founders of Plimoth Plantation, about 1620. He put his flat-brimmed hat on a three-legged stool beside his writing table and took quill in hand. I do hope he had a lovely day and that he poured a noggin of applejack for the Indians the colony invited to the plantation.

"A" PARTY: It may be the most literate pickup band in history: Stephen King on rhythm guitar, Dave Barry on lead guitar and Robert Fulghum on mandocello, with Matt Groening and Roy Blount as backup singers. They call themselves the Rock Bottom Remainders, and their debut performance at a nearby club should be the convention's hippest party. . . . "I've been practicing at the local karaoke bar," says Amy Tan, above, one of three Remainderettes.

What do writers and rock stars have in common? Both groups have been told over and over--by their parents and every other grown-up in their lives--never to quit their day jobs. In the case of the Rock Bottom Remainders, however, the similarity does not stop there. As musicians, they may not be as well-known as the Rolling Stones. But as best-selling authors they are just as famous. The scary-looking guy on rhythm guitar is Stephen King. Dave Barry plays lead guitar.

Here's what author Robert Fulghum did to research his latest book. He made a sign and wrote on it in big letters, "Tell me a short love story and I will buy you coffee and make you famous." Then he carried the sign around to some Seattle espresso houses, a couple of bars and a neighborhood fair and recorded what people told him. Fulghum, whose first book "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten" (Villard Books, 1988), made him about $2 million, always drew a crowd.
