'A resonant novella set in one of King's signature locales: the small town of Castle Rock, Maine' Washington Post

The small town of Castle Rock, Maine, has witnessed some strange events and unusual visitors over the years, but there is one story that has never been told...until now.

There are three ways up to Castle View from the town of Castle Rock: Route 117, Pleasant Road, and the Suicide Stairs. Every day in the summer of 1974 twelve-year-old Gwendy Peterson takes the stairs, which are held by strong (if time-rusted) iron bolts and zig-zag up the cliffside.

One day, while Gwendy catches her breath and listens to the shouts of the kids on the playground and the chink of an aluminium bat hitting a baseball, a stranger calls out to her.

On a bench in the shade sits a man in a small, neat black hat. He offers Gwendy a mahogany box with coloured buttons. The buttons will produce gifts, such as chocolate which can make you slimmer. But he warns her that the gifts will be 'small recompense for the responsibility.'

Journey back to Castle Rock in this chilling new novella by Stephen King, bestselling author of The Bazaar of Bad Dreams, and Richard Chizmar, award-winning author of A Long December

MEDIA REVIEWS

It is a collaboration, and a seamless one at that...clear, idiomatic prose style and a flair for creating instantly recognizable characters...both a superior addition to the never-quite-finished saga of Castle Rock and a cautionary tale directed toward a world that grows crazier - and more incomprehensible - with every passing day. - Washington Post

Extremely well-paced...a fun read that never loses momentum. - USA Today

This absorbing novella by horror giants King (End of Watch) and Chizmar (A Long December) revisits one of King's most popular locales. - Publisher’s Weekly

“Delicate Slice from the King”

Although slim in size, this novella is perfect for those who wish to indulge in some vintage Stephen King. This cautionary tale is another hit from the King of Horror, with purposefully delicate pacing and an... More
