The indisputable King of horror. TIME MAGAZINE One of the few horror writers who can truly make the flesh creep. SUNDAY EXPRESS One of the most engrossing reads I've had for months... written in a spare style that makes every detail count in the end- this is short story writing at its compelling best. FILM REVIEW It's one of King's best books, mainly because the writing is varied and unexpectedly concise. TIME OUT
