Perhap Stephen King's most personal and powerful novel, Lisey's Story is about the wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love. Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a twenty-five-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, bestselling novelist and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and bools. Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went -- a place that both terrified and healed him, that could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live. Now it's Lisey's turn to face Scott's demons, Lisey's turn to go to Boo'ya Moon. What begins as a widow's effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited.

This box set features three bestselling works from internationally famous horror author, Stephen King. The undisputed King of Horror delivers in these three spine-tingling books that are sure to keep you up at night. Lisey’s Story is the story of a writer’s widow who must confront his demons after his death. Two years ago, Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, an award-winning, bestselling novelist and a very complicated man. Lisey knew there was a place Scott went—a place that both terrified and healed him, that could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live. Now it’s Lisey’s turn to face Scott’s demons, Lisey’s turn to go to Boo’ya Moon. What begins as a widow’s effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited. Perhaps King’s most personal and powerful novel, Lisey’s Story is about the wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love. Featuring fourteen horrific short stories, Everything’s Eventual is King in terrifying top form with stories that will keep you awake until daybreak. King takes readers down a road less traveled (for good reason) in the blockbuster ebook “Riding the Bullet.” Bad table service turns bloody when you stop in for “Lunch at the Gotham Café,” and terror becomes déjà vu all over again when you get “That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French.” Enter a nightmarish mindscape of unrelenting horror and shocking revelations that could only come from the imagination of the greatest storyteller of our time. Buckle your seatbelts for Mr. Mercedes. In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. In this high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

Am 8. Mai 1983 wird Carl Djerassi von der Liebe seines Lebens, Diane Middlebrook, verlassen. Der Naturwissenschaftler und "Vater der Pille" macht sich an ein für ihn neuartiges Experiment: Gekränkt und unglücklich nimmt er Rache in Form einer "poetischen Vulkaneruption". Er beginnt, Gedichte zu schreiben, die in jeder Hinsicht offen sind - zum einen, weil sie einen höchst persönlichen und intimen Einblick in die Gefühlswelt Djerassis erlauben, zum anderen, weil sie formal frei gestaltet sind. Dieser Gedichtband ist das lyrische Tagebuch eines Mannes, der voll Zorn und Selbstmitleid, aber auch mit schonungsloser Ehrlichkeit das Ende seiner Beziehung betrauert, bis Diane 1984 zu ihm zurückkehrt und ihn wenig später heiratet. Erst mehrere Jahre nach ihrem Tod 2007 hat sich Djerassi abermals mit diesen Gedichten beschäftigt und sie überarbeitet. Das Zusammenspiel seiner beiden Lebenssprachen eröffnet neue Blickwinkel auf den Wissenschaftler, den Kunstkenner und vor allem auf den Menschen Carl Djerassi. On May 8th 1983, Carl Djerassi was left by the love of his life, the biographer Diane Middlebrook. The scientist, sometimes called the "Father of the Pill", embarks on a totally new experiment: Wounded and despondent, he takes revenge in the form of a "poetic volcanic eruption." He starts writing brutally open poems in free verse which allow a deeply personal and intimate insight into Djerassi's emotional world. This German-English poetry volume is the lyrical diary of a man, full of anger and self-pity, who grieves with unsparing honesty about the end of a relationship, until unexpectedly Diane Middlebrook returns to him in 1984 and becomes his wife. Only some years after her death in 2007 did Djerassi return again to these poems to revise and partly rewrite them. The bilingual interplay between his mother tongue and his adopted literary language provides a new perspective on the scientist, the art connoisseur and especially the persona of Carl Djerassi.

Stephen King, “America’s Favorite Boogeyman,” has sold over 350 million copies of his books, becoming in effect the face of horror fiction. His influence on popular culture has drawn both strong praise and harsh criticism from reviewers and scholars alike. While his popularity cannot be overstated, his work has received relatively little critical attention from the academic world. Examining King’s fiction using modern literary theory, this study reveals the unexpected complexity of 22 short stories and novels, from Carrie to End of Watch. The author finds King using fantasy and horror to expose truths about reality and the human condition.

This exciting exploration of Stephen King’s digital writing maneuvers and electronic ventures on online platforms and e-readers unravels the author’s latest writing techniques and justifies his unprecedented success in the new millennium. It investigates the latest additions to the Master of Horror’s “toolbox” by studying King’s media presence and writing oeuvre in the twenty-first century through online projects, such as his videogame Discordia. The book closely traces King’s shifts from print to the digital as he crafts his stories to share with his constant readers. Its examination of King’s re-vitalized Gothic sheds light on his shift towards new realizations that take into consideration the needs and tastes of the contemporary consuming public in a constant dialogue with their contemporary fears and anxieties. While exploring King’s literary generic and technological crossovers, the book stresses the need for an encompassing theory that takes into account literary tradition, norms, and motifs adjusted according to the materialities and technological specificities of each medium in specific socio-cultural and economic contexts.

2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the publication of Stephen King’s first novel Carrie in April 1974. Rescued from the rubbish by his wife Tabitha, the novel launched the Maine schoolteacher on a prolific and extraordinarily successful career. His name has become synonymous with horror and suspense through over fifty works, including The Dark Tower, a retelling of Byron’s Childe Harold to the Dark Tower Came. Simpson traces the writer’s life from his difficult childhood – his father went out to the shops and never came back – through his initial books under the pseudonym Richard Bachman to the success of Carrie, Salem’s Lot and The Shining in the 1970s, and beyond. He examines how King’s writing was affected by the accident that nearly killed him in 1999 and how his battles with alcohol and addiction to medication have been reflected in his stories. The guide will also take a look at the very many adaptation’s of King’s work in movies, on television and radio, and in comic books.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King’s novella The Sun Dog, published in his award-winning 1990 story collection Four Past Midnight, now available for the first time as a standalone publication. The dog is loose again. It is not sleeping. It is not lazy. It’s coming for you. Kevin Delavan wants only one thing for his fifteenth birthday: a Polaroid Sun 660. There’s something wrong with his gift, though. No matter where Kevin Delevan aims the camera, it produces a photograph of an enormous, vicious dog. In each successive picture, the menacing creature draws nearer to the flat surface of the Polaroid film as if it intends to break through. When old Pop Merrill, the town’s sharpest trader, gets wind of this phenomenon, he envisions a way to profit from it. But the Sun Dog, a beast that shouldn’t exist at all, turns out to be a very dangerous investment.
