Book of Counted Sorrows

The Book of Counted Sorrows is "quoted" in many Dean R. Koontz books. The book does not exist, and never has. Koontz himself wrote the poems, which he attributed to a Stephen Crane. He has admitted a few times that the book does not exist. Koontz himself has said, "I felt guilty about all the time that's been wasted in these fruitless searches. I do intend to have 'The Book of Counted Sorrows' published, once I have composed enough verses."¹
