The master storyteller at his best delivers a generous, thrilling new collection of stories featuring revelatory autobiographical comments on when, why and how he came to write each story.
The short story OBITS won the 2016 Edgar for best short story.
The No. 1 bestselling writer Stephen King presents a generous collection of thrilling stories and introduces each with a revelatory piece on when, where or how he came to write it.
There is a treasure here for every reader: a man who keeps reliving exactly the same life, repeating his mistakes over and over again; a columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries; a poignant tale about the end of the human race and a firework competition between neighbours which reaches an explosive climax.
'I made them especially for you,' says King. 'Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.'
