Short, sharp shocks from the master of horror
Magnificent, eerie, and utterly compelling, this collection assembles stories by Stephen King that have never before been published in a book. The horror master introduces each with a passage about his motivations for writing it.
There are themes of the afterlife, guilt, what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct past mistakes. Other stories address what happens when someone discovers that he has supernatural powers. In “Morality,” King looks at how a marriage and two lives fall apart after the wife and husband enter into a devil’s pact that at first seems winnable.
“I made them especially for you,” says King of these tales. “Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.”
"King’s restless imagination is a power that cannot be contained."—Laura Lippman, The New York Times Book Review
