I know that William Goldman was S. Morgensterm, but then why did he make up that whole thing about not being able to print the sequel. He must have gone through a lot of trouble to try to make everybody believe that there was an S. Morgenstern. There wasn't ever an S. Morgensten right?

There's no need to question his sanity.
He just sold what is a beautiful and uplifting story in an interesting way.

s morgenstern isnt real. theres no such country as florin, florin and guilder are both the names of european coins. also, in william goldmans book, the five screenplays, he says that he wrote the book, and made up s. morgenstern, i think thats pretty much all the proof anybody needs

well honestly, when i first read it, i started believing in good faith that s morgenstern really wrote it. obviously it took a LOT of confusion before i was finally like, YEAH RIGHT. i'd say the biggest thing that got me was how he met with steven king. not to mention, that he WROTE that he met with... i mean, he had that whole long note at the end. it seems like he went to GREAT lengths to sell the myth, which leads me to question his temperment/sanity. ;)

Morgenstern can not exist. The book is even filed under Goldman, Copyrighted under Goldman and so on.
And If you accept Morgenstern than you must accept Florin As Morgenstern is only identified as a Florinese writer. And that certainly does not exist.

Simon Morgenstern is a pseudonym, a narrative device invented by him to add another layer to The Princess Bride. Goldman claims S. Morgenstern is the original Florinese author of The Princess Bride and credits himself merely as an abridger who is bringing the classic to an American audience. OH MY GOD - I am dumb I want a whole book of Buttercups baby this isnt fair its such a wonderful book

the address in the book was actually real. when you sent in for the scene you were sent a "letter" from Goldman saying that there was some legal matters that needed to be taken care of before he could send it, and that he would indeed send it eventually. the readers never got the scene, they got Buttercup's Baby in the reprinted version of the book...

S. Morgenstern is a pseudonym Goldman used for two of his books. I am also amazed at the number of times I've been told by someone that "I know a guy who read the original version." Everyone knows a guy - no one's actually seen the mythical "Unabridged" Morgenstern edition (but that's probably just because it doesn't exist).
