About the Author

STEPHEN KING is a prolific and perennially bestselling author and an recognized master of the horror genre. He was the 2003 recipient of The National Book Foundation's Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.

From AudioFile

With its everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach to horror, it's no small task to bring Stephen King's novella of ghosts and repressed memories to life. Ken Howard is up to the job, however, breathing life into the apparitions, psychic vampires, menaced children, possessed adults, and tense battles between good and evil that fill this story to the brim. It's more manic King than subtle King, but Howard keeps things grounded with the humanity of his characterizations. This makes the scares stand out even more when Howard pulls out the stops during the showpiece sequences. Originally released in 1991 to coincide with King's four-novella collection FOUR PAST MIDNIGHT, this is a worthy reissue for those who enjoy scary stories on audio.

"The Library Policeman" from Four Past Midnight is one of Stephen King's best stories ever. It is not only my favorite novella, but the scariest story I've ever read. If you like a good spook then you should read this. You'll be sleeping with the light on. Please e-mail me for questions or comments

This was the second book I read by Stephen King. It's main character, Sam Peebles, I fell in love with. Why? Because Stephen King has a knack for creating characters people can relate to. This probibly is what reels you in. It makes it easy for you to fit into that person's shoes, and when you do, you're in for a scary read! The Library Policeman was a very good Stephen King novel. It satisfied my hunger for a chilling night time story. I'll never go into another library alone again! =

I must have read this book a thousand times it's on of SK's best. I love the way he spins his books like a spiders web. You only see loose ends at first and see the web at very the end of the story. This book in particular: you cannot start reading and stop before the story is done. This book was so good that I even took the time to read the original Englisch version.

This novella was somewhat disturbing and weird. A Library Policeman!?! What the heck! When I started the book(novella), I almost laughed my head off. I must admit it was boring till about page 80 or 90. As the story went on though it turned creepier and more disturbing by the page. Once I got to the chapter called Dave's Story I was fully engaged in the story and couldn't quit it. I finished this novella in one day. Ardella or whatever the name is(couldn't remember the name even when I finished), is so creepy when Dave tells his story. King did a great job of connecting us to the character in only 200 pages or so. This is a great imaginative piece of work by Stephen King and he scores a grand slam again!

"The Library Policeman" is a thrilling story of a man and his bad trip to the library, and of what is to come. The book has great detail and well developed characters. The horror of such things could only come from a great writer like Stephen King. The book is fast reading and makes you grip the pages with suspense. Ardelia is a a monster from my deepest nightmares. I love how King incorporates children into the story, and makes them the victims giving it a more horrific feeling of what Ardelia is doing. The whole story sent chill's down my back. The library in the story, is so twisted and scary that I love it. The story shows a great case of coping with your fears in order to over come a bigger picture. If you like creatures that you have never imagined like the Library Policeman, then i suggest trying " The Langoliers", also by Stephen Kind. I enjoyed "The Library Policeman" a great deal and woudl read it again.
