A collection of tales to invade and paralyse the mind as the safe light of day is infiltrated by the shadows of the night. As you read, the clutching fingers of terror brush lightly across the nape of the neck, reach round from behind to clutch and lock themselves, white-knuckled, around the throat. This is the horror of ordinary people and everyday objects that become strangely altered; a world where thing is ever quite what it seems, where the familiar and the friendly lure and deceive. A world where madness and blind panic become the only reality.
STEPHEN KING is a master of the novella and short narrative form. As he describes it: 'A short story is like a kiss in the dark from a stranger.' King's novellas and stories are among his most popular and some have been turned into celebrated films including STAND BY ME and THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION.
