I've read it, but for the record, S. Morgenstern is mentioned in the movie as well, when Columbo starts reading the book.

The Princess Bride, by S. Morgenstern. Chapter One. "Buttercup was raised on a small farm in the country of Florin. Her favorite pastimes were riding her horse and tormenting the farm boy that worked there. His name was Westley, but she never called him that." Isn't that a wonderful beginning?
