Betrayal, murder, madness and rats, King's darkly compelling story, now available for the first time from Hodder in standalone form, as part of their exciting Stephen King reissue programme for 2021.

The chilling novella featured in Stephen King's bestselling collection Full Dark, No Stars, 1922 - about a man who succumbs to the violence within - is now available as a stand-alone publication.

I believe there is a man inside every man, a stranger

So writes Wilfred James in his confession. It's 1922. Wilfred owns eighty acres of farmland in Nebraska that have been in the family for generations. His wife, Arlette, owns an adjoining one hundred acres.

But if Arlette carries out her threat to sell her land to a pig butcher, Wilfred will be forced to sell too. Worse, he'll have to move to the city. But he has a daring plan. It may work if he can persuade his son.

A powerful tale of betrayal, murder, madness and rats, 1922 is a breathtaking exploration into the dark side of human nature from the great American storyteller Stephen King. It was adapted into a film from Netflix.

Praise for 1922

  • It's compulsive reading, sometimes scary, revolting, ultimately heartbreaking . . . There is a hint of the supernatural in it, although the borderline between a haunting and madness here is a hairline fracture, and one that King exploits elegantly all the way to the end - NEIL GAIMAN, GUARDIAN

  • Wonderfully gruesome . . . The pages practically turn themselves - USA TODAY

  • Dripping with American Gothic . . . Utterly convincing and packed with grim atmosphere, it is a story that manages to keep you compulsively turning the pages - INDEPENDENT
