A No. 1 New York Times bestseller and winner of the 1986 Locus Award for Best Collection, SKELETON CREW is a classic collection of riveting stories from the outer limits of one of the greatest imaginations of our time, now with a stunning new cover look.

Features 'The Mist', adapted into both a feature film directed by Frank Darabont and a 2017 Netflix series.

Hold tight. We are going into a number of dark places, but I think I know the way. Just don't let go of my arm . . .

Unrivalled master of suspense Stephen King takes the unsuspecting reader on a fantastic journey through the dark shadows of our innermost fears.

Do the dead sing?

In this bumper collection of chilling tales, we meet: a woman who has never crossed The Reach, the water dividing her from the mainland; a gramma who only wants to hug little George, even after she is dead; an innocent looking toy with sinister powers; and a primeval sea creature with an insatiable appetite.
