Stephen King - A ​Setét Torony - Susannah dala
Roland ​és harcostársai segítségével Calla Byn Strugis lakosai elsöprő győzelmet arattak a Farkasok felett. Ám örömükre árnyék vetül: az ünneplés forgatagában Susannah eltűnt az Ajtó Barlangja irányában. Eddie kétségbeesése határtalan, hisz feleségénél minden percben megindulhat a szülés. A _ka-tet_ nem tétlenkedik - az asszony után erednek. Callahan atya és Jake 1999 New Yorkjába jut, ahová Susannah is került. A asszony hasadt személyiségében most Mia vette át a vezér szerepét, mindenáron magának akarja a születendő gyermeket. "Kettejük" párharcában egyelőre egyikük sem győzedelmeskedhet, hiszen Mia tudja, hová kell menniük, ám Susannah nélkül nem boldogul ebben a számára ismeretlen világban. Vitáik során kiderül, ki az erőszakban fogant gyermek valódi apja, és Susannah-t letaglózza a felismerés... Az atya és Jake kétségbeesetten keresik társnőjüket, aki Mia parancsára a Dixie Malac nevű kocsmába ment, hogy ott szülje meg gyermekét, mohó vámpírok karéjában... Eközben Roland és Eddie 1977-ben, Maine államban bolyong, véres küzdelembe bonyolódva régi ellenségeikkel. Útjuk során összefutnak "teremtőjükkel", egy Stephen King nevű íróval is... A Setét Torony, minden világok pillére pedig egyre jobban inog...

Stephen King - A ​búra alatt
A ​világ első számú horrorírójának 2009-es nagyregénye valamikor 2012 után játszódik egy amerikai kisvárosban, amelyre fényes napvilágnál egyszer csak leereszkedik egy hatalmas bura, elszigetelve a települést nemcsak a külvilágtól, hanem alkalmasint az oxigén-utánpótlástól is. A közösség pillanatok alatt ellenségeskedő csoportokra szakad, a mikrotársadalom elkezdi felszámolni önmagát - holott elsőrendű érdeke az volna, hogy szó szerint kiutat találjon, amíg még nem késő. Ehhez persze először azt kellene megállapítaniuk, mi is ez a bura, honnan származik, mi működteti - és fel lehet-e emelni valaha is.

Stephen King - Dolores
A _Dolores_ ​műfaja szerint krimi, de Stephen King, a horror koronázatlan királya itt sem tagadja meg önmagát. Mert éppen eléggé borzalmas már az alaphelyzet is: két rovott múltú szipirtyó egy fedél alatt él egy szigeten, és valami különös szeretet-gyűlölet viszony fűzi őket egymáshoz... Aztán egyikük, a ház magatehetetlen, hájas úrnője a porcicák elől menekülve egyszer csak kikél tolószékéből, és lezuhan a lépcsőn – majd a nem sokkal később érkező postásfiú az összezúzott tetem mellett ott talál egy márvány sodrófát. Természetesen Doloresre, a társnőjére fogják rá, hogy végzett vele. Dolores a rendőrségen beszámol egész életéről: sötét, pokoli indulatokról mesél – és egy régi napfogyatkozás idején elkövetett szörnyű bűntényről... ám azt tagadja, hogy megölte volna szipirtyótársát.

Stephen King - Az üvegpadló
Az első profi sztorija 1967-ben jelent meg a Startling Mystery Stories-ban, a címe "The Glass Floor" (Az Üvegpadló) volt.

Stephen King - Blaze
Written circa 1973, this “trunk novel,” as Bachman's double (aka Stephen King) refers to it in his self-deprecating foreword, lacks the drama and intensity of Carrie and the horror opuses that followed it. Still, this fifth Bachman book (after 1996's The Regulators ) shows King fine-tuning his skill at making memorable characters out of simple salt-of-the-earth types. Clayton “Blaze” Blaisdell has fallen into a life of delinquency ever since his father's brutal abuse rendered him feebleminded. King alternates chapters recounting Blaze's past mistreatment at a series of Maine orphanages and foster homes with Blaze's current plans to follow through on a kidnapping scheme plotted by his recently murdered partner in crime, George Rackley. Blaze talks to George as though he's still there, and the conversations give the tale tension, with Blaze coming across as a pitiable and surprisingly sympathetic contrast to prickly George. Despite its predictability, this diverting soft-boiled crime novel reflects influences ranging from John Steinbeck to James M. Cain. Also included is a previously uncollected story, “Memory,” the seed of King's forthcoming novel Duma Key .

Stephen King - Stagioni diverse
Stagioni diverse (Different Seasons) è la seconda raccolta di racconti scritte da Stephen King e pubblicata nel 1982.

Stephen King - Il gioco di Gerald
In una casa isolata su un lago, Jessie si piega all'ennesima fantasia sessuale del marito Gerald, che questa volta l'ammanetta al massiccio letto in legno. Ma quando umiliata, lei lo allontana con un calcio, l'uomo si affloscia inerte, stroncato da un infarto. Il tempo passa e Jessie, immobilizzata e dolorante, sembra votata a una morte lenta, resa ancora più atroce dalla comparsa di un affamato cane randagio e da un'ombra misteriosa e irreale che fa capolino nella stanza...

Stephen King - A hármak elhivatása
Szükségem lenn Stephen King - A hármak elhivatása című könyvére, az új kiadásban.

Stephen King - Rémálmok és Lidércek 1.
Stephen King harmadik, válogatott novellagyűjteményének első kötetét tartja kezében az olvasó, amelyeket a szerző hétévente állít össze. Nem véletlenül...mármint nem véletlenül hétévente! Mert mint tudjuk, a 7 nemcsak prím-, hanem misztikus szám is! Akik rendszeresen olvassák műveit, tisztában vannak vele, hogy King önmagával szemben a legszigorúbb. Így ebbe a kötetbe is csak a legjobb írásait válogatta, sőt beemelt néhányat a még nem publikáltak közül is, hogy valódi nóvumokkal örvendeztess meg olvasóit. Ahogy ő mondja, s joggal: "Állandó Olvasóját". Egyik-másik elbeszélése már-már kisregény terjedelmű, de "Á.O." ezt aligha bánja...Hiszen Stephen King a tőle megszokott fantáziadús lendülettel tartja ébren olvasói érdeklődését, bújjon ki akár egy elképesztően hosszú ujj a lefolyóból, keljen életre egy vásári fogsor afféle igazságtevőként, vagy kalandozzon el szerzőnk a sci-fi világába, ugorjon akár ötven évet is az időben ide-oda, hogy hátborzongató módon keverje össze írót és főhősét... Stephen King nem ígér békés álmot novellái olvasása után. Legfeljebb oldódást. Mert az általa leírt borzalmakat sokkal jobb érzékletesen hiteles leírásai alapján elképzelni, mint megélni. Éppen erről van szó! King mindent tud! Azt is, hogy a modern lélekgyógyászat alapja a kibeszélés, a dramaturgialiag megfontoltan előlegezett, verbális tett. Talán ezért olvassuk olyan sokan King műveit. Mert King levezeti az indulatokat. Tudja, hogy vízió az egész, de azért "éjjelente- biztos ami biztos - égve hagyja a fürdőszobai lámpát"... Fél talán? Lehet. De ki nem manapság? Valódi vagy kéelt szörnyektől? Javasoljuk az "Á.O."-nak: ő ne a fürdőszobai, hanem az ágy melletti olvasólámpát hagyja égve... Jobban jár...Ezt a könyvet úgysem tudja letenni...

Stephen King - 1922
The ​chilling novella featured in Stephen King's New York Times bestselling short story collection Full Dark, No Stars—now a Netflix original film starring Thomas Jane and Molly Parker. A violence awakens inside a man when his wife proposes selling off the family homestead, setting in motion a grisly train of murder and madness.

Stephen King - Den ​grønne mil
Velkommen ​til Cold Mountain-fængslet, der er hjem for E-blokkens depressive mænd. De er alle dødsdømte mordere. Hver af dem afventer sin tur ad Den grønne mil til et stævnemøde med dødsgangens elektriske stol. Fængselsbetjent Paul Edgecombe har oplevet mange mærkværdige mennesker i de år, han har arbejdet på Den grønne mil. Men har har aldrig før mødt en mand som John Coffey, der har en krop som en kæmpe og en hjerne som et barn. Han er dømt til døden for en forfærdelig, rå forbrydelse. Men på dette sted, hvor alt håb lades ude, er Edgecombe ved at opdage den uhyggelige og vidunderlige sandhed om Coffey. En sandhed, der er en udfordring for hans hidtil faste tro på, hvad der er muligt og umuligt. På dødsgangen i det amerikanske fængsel Cold Mountain sidder de dødsdømte og stirrer på Den grønne mil, gangen der fører til dødskammeret og til Cold Mountains elektriske stol, kaldet Den gamle Støder. Her er mordere som William Wharton og Eduard Delacroix, men onde eller gode, skyldige eller uskyldige, ingen af dem ser så brutale ud som den nye fange, John Coffey, der er dømt til døden for voldtægt og mord på to tvillingepiger. Er Coffey en hensynsløs djævel, eller er han noget helt andet? Fangerne bliver overvåget af fængselsbetjente, der er lige så forskellige som fangerne selv, lige fra den gode og retfærdige Paul Edgecombe, historiens fortæller, til den sadistiske Percy Wetmore, der finder stor fornøjelse i at pine de indsatte. Der er flere ting mellem himmel og jord, end nogen i Cold Mountain kan forestille sig. Men Paul Edgecombe tror ikke på mirakler, før han møder et. vis mindre

Stephen King - The ​Institute
In ​the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.” In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

Stephen King - La ​llegada de los tres
La ​llegada de los tres es el segundo volumen de la serie «La Torre Oscura». Roland de Gilead deberá encontrar a los integrantes de su ka-tet. Después de enfrentarse con el hombre de negro al final de El pistolero, Roland se despierta febril y debilitado en una playa. Al caer la noche le atacan unos seres monstruosos que salen del mar. Para eludirlos, Roland puede huir de la playa por tres salidas, tres puertas. Todas le llevarán a Nueva York, pero en tres momentos distintos; además, al otro lado de cada una de ellas Roland tendrá que atraer a una persona. Necesita a estas tres personas para seguir adelante en su búsqueda de la Torre Oscura: en el año 1987 encuentra a Eddie Dean, heroinómano desesperado; en 1964 a Odetta Holmes, la Dama de las Sombras, heredera afroamericana que perdió sus piernas en un accidente en el metro; finalmente, en 1977, da con Jack Mort, la propia muerte. ¿Serán ellos los que formarán su ka-tet? Este volumen incluye una nueva introducción del autor, además de las ilustraciones originales de la edición de Donald Grant de 1987.

Stephen King - Carrie ​(olasz)
Il ​romanzo racconta la storia di Carrie White, una liceale che vive in una piccola città del Maine con una madre ossessionata dalla religione. Goffa, solitaria, vittima dei tiri mancini dei suoi coetanei, Carrie scopre gradualmente di avere poteri telecinetici, poteri che si erano già manifestati all'età di tre anni, dopo il primo choc della sua vita. Un giorno, l'innocente e beffeggiata Carrie userà il suo potere e sarà ovunque orrore, distruzione e morte.

Stephen King - A ​Good Marriage
Now ​a major motion picture, Stephen King's brilliant and terrifying story of a marriage with truly deadly secrets. Darcy Anderson’s husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his routine business trips when the unsuspecting Darcy looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a hidden box under a worktable and in it she discovers a trove of horrific evidence that her husband is two men—one, the benign father of her children, the other, a raging rapist and murderer. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends “A Good Marriage.”

Stephen King - Full ​Dark, No Stars
"I ​believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger . . ." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922," the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness. In "Big Driver," a cozy-mystery writer named Tess encounters the stranger along a back road in Massachusetts when she takes a shortcut home after a book-club engagement. Violated and left for dead, Tess plots a revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger: the one inside herself. "Fair Extension," the shortest of these tales, is perhaps the nastiest and certainly the funniest. Making a deal with the devil not only saves Dave Streeter from a fatal cancer but provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment. When her husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable and she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage. Like Different Seasons and Four Past Midnight, which generated such enduring films as The Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me, Full Dark, No Stars proves Stephen King a master of the long story form.

Stephen King - Quattro ​dopo mezzanotte
Passata ​la mezzanotte, il tempo e la realtà subiscono strane, inquietanti trasformazioni... Che cosa accade all'osservatore terrorizzato quando cade la barriera che separa la realtà dall'irrealtà? Stephen King avanza terrificanti risposte in questa raccolta di racconti dal suggestivo potere ipnotico. Scandita dal ticchettio dell'orologio, una lettura da brivido.

Stephen King - Guns
In ​a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King’s keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done. King's earnings from the sale of this essay will go the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Stephen King - The ​Gunslinger
Eerie, ​dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea. Roland is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange singlemindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape. The people he encounters are left behind, or worse - left dead. At a way station, however, he meets Jake, a boy from a particular time (1977) and a particular place (New York City), and soon the two are joined - khef, ka, and ka-tet. The mountains lie before them. So does the man in black and, somewhere far beyond... the Dark Tower.

Stephen King - Cujo ​(német)
Cujo, ​ein zwei Zentner schwerer Bernhardiner, idt der Liebling von ganz Castle Rock, einer verträumten Kleinstadt im amerikanischen Bundesstaat Maine. Eines Tages jagt Cujo ein Wildkaninchen, das sich in einem versteckten Erdloch in Sicherheit bringt. In blindem Jagdeifer will der Hund seine Beute verfolgen und scheucht dabei ein namenloses Übel auf, das die Idylle von Castle Rock nach und nach in eine Hölle verwandelt, die von einem vierbeinigen, mordgierigen Ungeheuer beherrscht wird.

Stephen King - Mile ​81
With ​the heart of Stand By Me and the genius horror of Christine, Mile 81 is Stephen King unleashing his imagination as he drives past one of those road signs... At Mile 81 on the Maine Turnpike is a boarded up rest stop on a highway in Maine. It's a place where high school kids drink and get into the kind of trouble high school kids have always gotten into. It's the place where Pete Simmons goes when his older brother, who's supposed to be looking out for him, heads off to the gravel pit to play "paratroopers over the side." Pete, armed only with the magnifying glass he got for his tenth birthday, finds a discarded bottle of vodka in the boarded up burger shack and drinks enough to pass out. Not much later, a mud-covered station wagon (which is strange because there hadn't been any rain in New England for over a week) veers into the Mile 81 rest area, ignoring the sign that says "closed, no services." The driver's door opens but nobody gets out. Doug Clayton, an insurance man from Bangor, is driving his Prius to a conference in Portland. On the backseat are his briefcase and suitcase and in the passenger bucket is a King James Bible, what Doug calls "the ultimate insurance manual," but it isn't going to save Doug when he decides to be the Good Samaritan and help the guy in the broken down wagon. He pulls up behind it, puts on his four-ways, and then notices that the wagon has no plates. Ten minutes later, Julianne Vernon, pulling a horse trailer, spots the Prius and the wagon, and pulls over. Julianne finds Doug Clayton's cracked cell phone near the wagon door — and gets too close herself. By the time Pete Simmons wakes up from his vodka nap, there are a half a dozen cars at the Mile 81 rest stop. Two kids — Rachel and Blake Lussier — and one horse named Deedee are the only living left. Unless you maybe count the wagon.

Stephen King - The ​Mouse on the Mile
The ​Green Mile tells the story of two men, a prison guard and his new death row inmate, and their suddenly intertwined lives. What would it be like to walk those last 40 yards to the electric chair, knowing you were going to die there? What would it be like to be the man who had to strap the condemned man in or pull the switch? What would such a job take out of you, or even add? The Mouse on the Mile: Cold Mountain Penitentiary has been home to many troubled souls. E Block, where the electric chair waits for those who must pay the ultimate price, has been home to the most troubled of all. And here, not all the evil is behind bars. Sometimes it carries a gun and wears a badge.

Stephen King - Corazones ​en la Atlántida
Aunque ​algunos episodios de la década de los sesenta nos parezcan irreales, no son ficticios, ocurrieron de verdad. Stephen King, que ha sido el primer escritor de la generación de la televisión que ha logrado un enorme éxito, publicó en 1974 Carrie, su primera novela, justo un año antes de la retirada de las últimas tropas americanas de Vietnam. Las imágenes de aquella guerra y de las protestas en contra habían inundado las pequeñas pantallas de las casas americanas durante casi diez años, dejando una huella imborrable en toda una generación. En Corazones en Atlántida, King hipnotiza a sus lectores con una ficción profundamente sembrada en esos años, los sesenta, y explora, a lo largo de cuatro décadas, los estigmas y la herencia psicológica de la guerra de Vietnam en las personas. Lleno de peligro, lleno de suspense y, sobre todo, lleno de sentimientos, este libro de Stephen King transportará a algunos lectores a un lugar que nunca antes han visitado y a otros a un lugar que nunca podrán abandonar del todo... 

Stephen King - The ​Dark Half
"Thad ​Beaumont is an author and recovering alcoholic who lives in the tiny Maine town of Ludlow (the setting of Pet Sematary and about an hour away from the fictional town of Castle Rock, often used in King's novels). His own books are not very successful, but under the pen name George Stark, Thad writes gritty crime novels about a violent killer named Alexis Machine, which are very popular and successful. When it's learned that Thad Beaumont, who writes cerebral literary fiction, is really Stark, he and his wife Elizabeth decide to stage a daylight funeral for the fictional Stark. His epitaph at the local cemetery says it all: NOT A VERY NICE GUY. However, that is not the end of Stark and over the weeks to come he resurrects himself from his mock-grave and kills, gruesomely, everyone he perceives responsible for his "death". Thad, meanwhile, is plagued by surreal nightmares, and is soon visited by Sheriff Alan Pangborn (a main character in the novel Needful Things), asking questions Thad can't, or doesn't want to, answer. Thad's finger and voice prints are identical to Stark's, and Stark has left plenty of evidence at the scenes of his crimes..."

Stephen King - Cujo ​(angol)
Outside ​a peaceful town in central Maine, a monster is waiting...Cujo is a huge Saint Bernard dog, the best friend Brett Camber has ever had. One day Cujo chases a rabbit into a bolt-hole, a cave inhabited by some very sick bats. What happens to Cujo, how he becomes a horrifying vortex inexorably drawing in all the people around him, makes for one of the most heart-stopping novels Stephen King has written.

Stephen King - The ​Bazaar of Bad Dreams
The ​next short story collection containing many of the previously published but hard-to-find short stories published since Just After Sunset.

Stephen King - The ​Bachman Books
The ​name on the covers was Richard Bachman but the imagination inside could only belong to one man. Stephen King explains: 'WHY I WAS RICHARD BACHMAN' For years, readers wrote asking if Richard Bachman was really world-bestselling Stephen King writing under another name. Now the secret is out - and so, brought together in one volume, are these four spellbinding stories of future shock and suspense. RAGE A high-school teenager becomes a gang-of-one in a terrifying display of rebellion THE LONG WALK A chilling look at the ultra-conservative America of the future 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 $ billion jackpot

Stephen King - Song ​of Susannah

Jake, Oy, and Pere Callahan must rescue Susannah while Eddie and Roland transport to the Maine of 1977. A vacant lot in New York is the prize that must be saved and ties these together.

Stephen King - Joyland ​(német)
Stephen ​Kings Bestseller Der Anschlag – seine Zeitreise in die Sechzigerjahre – wurde von der Kritik einhellig in höchsten Tönen gelobt. In Joyland nun nimmt der Autor den Leser auf einen Trip in die Siebzigerjahre mit. Auf verhängnisvolle Weise kreuzen sich in einem kleinen Vergnügungspark die Wege eines untergetauchten Mörders und eines Kindes. Und mitten im sich überschlagenden Geschehen steht ein junger, unschuldiger Student und weiß: Irgendwann ist es mit der Unschuld vorbei. Irgendwann hört jeder Spaß auf. Um sich sein Studium zu finanzieren, arbeitet Devin Jones während der Semesterferien im Vergnügungspark Joyland an der Küste von North Carolina. Drei Dinge sind es, die ihn im Laufe des Sommers 1973 vor allem beschäftigen: Seine große Liebe Wendy gibt ihm per Brief den Laufpass. In der Geisterbahn Horror House soll es spuken, nachdem dort ein Mädchen ermordet wurde. Und er fragt sich, welches Geheimnis sich wohl hinter der schönen jungen Frau mit ihrem behinderten Sohn verbirgt, an deren Strandvilla er jeden Tag vorbeikommt. Vom unbekümmerten Schaustellerleben in Joyland fasziniert, verlängert Devin seinen Aufenthalt. Mit seinen neugierigen Nachforschungen tritt er jedoch eine Lawine von Ereignissen los, bei denen es schließlich um Tod oder Leben geht ...

Stephen King - Hearts ​In Suspension
This ​publication marks the 50th anniversary of Stephen King's entrance into the University of Maine at Orono in the fall of 1966. The accelerating war in Vietnam and great social upheaval at home exerted a profound impact on students of the period and deeply influenced King's development as a writer and as a man. King's fictional treatment of this experience in his novella "Hearts in Atlantis" (reprinted in this volume) tracks his youthful avatar, Peter Riley, through the awakenings and heartbreak of his turbulent first year at UMaine. In his accompanying essay, "Five to One, One in Five," written expressly for this volume, King sheds his fictional persona and takes on the challenge of a nonfiction return to his undergraduate experience. The stereoscopic combination of these narratives, told with King's characteristic blend of canny insight and self-deprecating humor, create a revealing portrait of the artist as young man and a ground-level tableau of this highly charged time. In addition, twelve fellow students and friends from King's college days contribute personal narratives recalling their own experience of those years. These recollections-engaged, irreverent, and affecting-bring dimension and texture to the collective witnessing of a formative time in their lives and a defining moment in the country's history. This book also includes four installments of King's never-before-reprinted student newspaper column, "King's Garbage Truck." These lively examples of King's damn-the-torpedoes style, entertaining and shrewd in their youthful perceptions, more than hint at a talent about to take its place in the American literary landscape. A gallery of period photographs and documents augments this volume.
