Waterstones Says

A trio of tales written by King under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman, these slices of prescient, page-turning speculative fiction demonstrate the great storyteller’s boundless imagination and versatility. 

The iconic bestseller from Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman - now with a stunning new cover look.

For years, readers wrote asking if Richard Bachman was really world-bestselling author Stephen King writing under another name. Now the secret is out - and so, brought together in one volume, are these three spellbinding stories of future shock and suspense.

The Long Walk: A chilling look at the ultra-conservative America of the future where a gruelling 450-mile marathon is the ultimate sports competition.

Roadwork: An immovable man refuses to surrender to the irresistible force of progress.

The Running Man: TV's future-favourite game show, where contestants are hunted to death in the attempt to win a $1 billion jackpot.

Publishers Note: Includes The Running Man which is also published as an individual book.

“An interesting collection of novellas.”

If I'd read these without knowing they were by Stephen King, I probably wouldn't have guessed. (Unlike all the people that eventually did figure it out causing King to reveal himself as Richard Bachman.)... More
