Stephen King - The ​Bad Death of Eduard Delacroix
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 Bad Death of Eduard Delacroix: Time has run out for one of the inmates at the Cold Mountain penitentiary. Eduard Delacroix is set to take that final walk down the Green Mile. But first he must say good-bye -- to the guards, to his fellow inmates, and to a strange creature that forever changed his life. Little does he know of the terrible fate that awaits him, and of a devilish plan of revenge.

Stephen King - El ​hombre del traje negro
Gary ​es un anciano que al final de su vida recuerda un hecho espeluznante que le ocurrió siendo un niño. Relato ganador del Premio al mejor relato corto O.Henry. Gary, el protagonista de esta historia, recuerda con miedo cuando siendo niño tuvo un encuentro con un hombre de ojos anaranjados y vestido con un traje negro de tres piezas que le causó horror y le dijo cosas terribles. Esta experiencia le marcará toda la vida y ya en el ocaso de la misma la recordará con el temor de volver a reencontrarse con él. La aceptación del miedo y cómo vivir haciéndole frente es uno de los temas centrales de este soberbio relato que fue ganador, en 1995, del prestigio premio O.Henry en Estados Unidos.

Stephen King - Bag ​of Bones
Bag ​of Bones is partly inspired by Daphne du Maurier's classic Rebecca, but there's more than homage in this novel of horror and romance. Like du Maurier's Manderley, King's scary old place (on the shore of Maine's remote Dark Score Lake) is haunted by the late lady of the manor. There are many gory ghosts afoot, though: men, women, and wailing kids. The hero, a thriller novelist, stirs up hell's plenty of angry shades while investigating his wife's death. It turns out she either had a dark secret herself or was onto some dread scandal lurking in Dark Score Lake. As in King's previous book, Wizard and Glass, the fabric of reality is thin, and nosy narrators are in peril of plunging right out of this world and into a rather hostile otherworld.

Stephen King - Shawshank ​Redemption
A ​Stephen King novel telling of unfair imprisonment and escape.

Stephen King - Valve ​lõpp
Palatis ​number 217 on ärganud miski, mis on tulvil kurjust. Brady Hartsfield, kes korraldas kaheksa hukkunu ja paljude vigastatutega veresauna, on lebanud kliinikus viis aastat vegetatiivses seisundis. Arstide arvates ei saa olla juttugi tema paranemisest. Kuid Brady on teadvusel ja tema kasutuses on uued võimed, mis lubavad külvata kujuteldamatut hävingut haiglapalatist väljumata. „Valve lõpus” leiab Stephen Kingi Hodgesi-triloogia närvekõditava lõpplahenduse, kus põnevik on ühendatud Kingi populaarseima kaubamärgi, südant põksuma paneva üleloomuliku elemendiga. Tulemuseks on kaasahaarav pilguheit inimese haavatavusse ning kõhedusttekitav põnevus ja pinge.

Stephen King - La ​Milla Verde
Octubre ​de 1932, penitenciaría de Cold Mountain. Los condenados a muerte aguardan el momento de ser conducidos a la silla eléctrica.

Y en esa antesala del infierno Stephen King traza una pavorosa radiografía del horror en estado puro.

Stephen King - Ținuturile ​pustii
Roland, ​ultimul pistolar, se apropie tot mai mult de Turnul intunecat, care ii bantuie visele si cosmarurile. Urmariti de Strainul fara Varsta, el si prietenii lui se aventureaza pe un drum plin de pericole pana la Lud, orasul pustiit. Iar pe masura ce traverseaza desertul damnarii, in aceasta macabra lume noua, incep sa priceapa cine – si ce – ii face sa mearga mai departe. Amestec desavarsit de actiune si suspans, tinututile pustii ii lasa pe cititori cu rasuflarea taiata in asteptarea urmatorului volum. Caci Turnul e din ce in ce mai aproape... „Al treilea volum al calatoriei lui Roland spre Turnul intunecat ofera momente minunate de fantezie, suspans la limita, dar si scene de horror pur.” Publishers Weekly „Captivant, irezistibil. [...] Romanele lui King nu le citesti, in ele te cufunzi si-ti doresti sa nu se mai incheie.” Chicago Sun-Times „Saga Turnului intunecat ramane deosebita de tot ce am citit prin personajele sale unice si multifatetate.” School Library Journal „Suspans de la un capat la altul, [...] seducator.” Publishers Weekly

This beautiful collection features a new introduction by Stephen King and bonus art including character sketches, variant covers and more!

Stephen King - Carrie
A ​chamberlaini gimnáziumban közeleg az érettségi. A tizenhat éves, esetlen Carrie White-ot nemcsak bigottan vallásos anyja terrorizálja, hanem diáktársai - főként a lányok - gúnyolódásának is állandó céltáblája. Egy különösen megalázó esemény után a főkolomposokat megbüntetik, Carrie-ben pedig nőttön-nő az indulat, elégtételt akar venni az őt ért sérelmekért. Egyre inkább tudatosul benne, hogy félelmetes telekinetikus képessége micsoda hatalom... Stephen King sorrendben negyedik regénye ez, mégis elsőként jelent meg, és zajos sikert aratott: egy év alatt több mint egymillió példányt adtak el belőle. Írója akkoriban még középiskolai tanárként dolgozott, alig jött ki a fizetéséből, és ehhez a történethez nem fűzött komolyabb reményeket - kezdetben novellának szánta, de nem volt vele elégedett. Végül ki is dobta, az anekdota szerint felesége bányászta elő a szemetesből, és ő győzte meg a pályakezdő írót, hogy érdemes kidolgoznia az ötletet. Egy visszaemlékezésben afféle fordított Hamupipőke-történetnek nevezte a Carrie-t, amely később keletkezett, mint a - vele párhuzamba állítható - Rosemary gyermeke című film, de korábban, mint az Ördögűző. A regényből eredetileg Brian De Pálma rendezett filmet 1976-ban. A vadonatúj, 2013-as filmváltozat rendezője Kimberly Peirce, a két főszerepet Julianne Moore és Chloe Grace Moretz alakítja.

Stephen King - The ​Waste Lands
The ​Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands follows The Gunslinger and The Drawing of the Three as the third volume in this remarkable series, which well may be the most extraordinary and most imaginative cycle of tales in the English language. Inspired in part by Robert Browning's narrative poem, Stephen King has written once again of his twenty-year affair with The Dark Tower and its strange world that is both so familiar and unfamiliar to us. Writing of his masterwork, King reveals that he is ". . .still able to find Roland's world when I set my wits to it, and it still holds me in thrall. . .more, in many ways, than any of the other worlds I have wandered in my imagination." The first volume in the cycle, The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger, tells of the haunting, mysterious character of Roland of Gilead, the last gunslinger, in a world that has "moved on." A second volume, The Drawing of the Three, picks up Roland's quest upon a deserted beach of the Western Sea. In The Waste Lands, we are joined with old acquaintances: the boy Jake who has been introduced in The Gunslinger, along with Eddie Dean and Susannah, who are so prominently featured in The Drawing of the Three. Roland's strange odyssey continues. There are new evils. . .new dangers to threaten Roland's little band in the devastated city of Lud and the surrounding waste lands, as well as horrific confrontations with Blaine the Mono, the piratical Gasher, and the frightening Tick-Tock Man. The Dark Tower cycle continues to set its author on a plane apart. What lands, what peoples has Stephen King visited that are so unreachable to us except in the pages of his unique writings?

Stephen King - Doctor ​Sleep (olasz)
Perseguitato ​dalle visioni provocate dallo shining, la luccicanza, il dono maledetto con il quale è nato, e dai fantasmi dei vecchi ospiti dell’Overlook Hotel dove ha trascorso un terribile inverno da bambino, Dan ha continuato a vagabondare per decenni. Una disperata vita on the road per liberarsi da un’eredità paterna fatta di alcolismo, violenza e depressione. Oggi, finalmente, è riuscito a mettere radici in una piccola città del New Hampshire, dove ha trovato un gruppo di amici in grado di aiutarlo e un lavoro nell’ospizio in cui quel che resta della sua luccicanza regala agli anziani pazienti l’indispensabile conforto finale. Aiutato da un gatto capace di prevedere il futuro, Torrance diventa Doctor Sleep, il Dottor Sonno. Poi Dan incontra l’evanescente Abra Stone, il cui incredibile dono, la luccicanza più abbagliante di tutti i tempi, riporta in vita i demoni di Dan e lo spinge a ingaggiare una poderosa battaglia per salvare l’esistenza e l’anima della ragazzina.

Stephen King - Pistolarul
La ​varsta de nouasprezece ani, Stephen King s-a hotarat sa scrie o poveste similara cu cea din Stapanul inelelor de J.R.R. Tolkien. Westernul legendar regizat de Sergio Leone, Bunul, raul si uratul, si un poem de Robert Browning, Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came, l-au inspirat sa scrie „ceva ce continea sentimentul de aventura si magie din seria lui Tolkien, dar pe fundalul western aproape absurd de maret al lui Leone”, o epopee de o „maretie apocaliptica”. Treizeci si trei de ani mai tarziu, magnus opus la care a lucrat intreaga viata a fost finalizat. Este povestea lui Roland Deschain, ultimul pistolar, si a calatoriei sale spre Turnul Intunecat. „Plasata intr-o stranie lume paralela, cu o imagistica vizuala hipnotica si personaje de neuitat, seria Turnul Intunecat este creatia cea mai vizionara a lui King, un amestec magic de science fiction, fantasy si horror, care ii incununeaza intreaga opera.” Barnes & Noble „Daca va va vraji Turnului Intunecat, fie si numai un pic, socotesc ca-mi voi fi facut treaba – care a inceput in 1970 si s-a incheiat in buna parte in 2003. Totusi, Roland ar fi primul care sa atraga atentia ca o perioada ca aceasta inseamna foarte putin. De fapt, cand te afli in cautarea Turnului Intunecat, timpul nu mai are nici o masura.” Stephen King

Stephen King - Rose ​Madder
This ​is the story of Rose Daniels, "the most richly portrayed female King's ever created."* Escape from her macabre marriage is not as easy as fleeing to a new city, picking a new name, finding a new job, and lucking out with a new man. Not with a husband like Norman...

Stephen King - Sara
Seit ​dem überraschenden Tod seiner Frau bringt der Bestsellerautor Michael noonan keine Zeile mehr zu Papier. In seinen Träumen sieht er immer wieder das Sommerhaus in Maine vor sich, das er seit Jahren nicht mehr besucht hat. Nun beschliesst er, sich dorthin zurückzuziehen, um endlich seine Schreibblockade zu überwinden. Doch auf dem Haus lastet ein Fluch.

Stephen King - 11/22/63 ​(angol)
On ​November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? Stephen King’s heart-stoppingly dramatic new novel is about a man who travels back in time to prevent the JFK assassination—a thousand page tour de force. Following his massively successful novel Under the Dome, King sweeps readers back in time to another moment—a real life moment—when everything went wrong: the JFK assassination. And he introduces readers to a character who has the power to change the course of history. Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the students—a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer. Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk. Not much later, Jake’s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane—and insanely possible—mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination.

Stephen King - Danse ​Macabre
„…megpróbálok ​ráijeszteni az olvasómra. De ha ez nem megy, akkor megpróbálom rettegésbe taszítani; és ha úgy látom, nem jön össze, akkor jöhet a gyomorforgatás. Nem vagyok finnyás.” King 1981-ben, szerkesztője tanácsára állt neki, hogy egy könyvben foglalja össze, mit gondol választott műfajáról, a horrorról és annak megjelenési formáiról. Ekkoriban egyetemen is tartott kurzust a műfajról, adott volt hát a lehetőség, hogy jegyzeteit és tanítványaival való vitáit is felhasználva alapvető könyvet írjon. A tíz fejezetben kitér minden, általa fontosnak tartott témára és műre, főleg azokra, amelyek 1950 és 1980 között születtek, de azért visszatekint a tizenkilencedik századra is. A vizsgálódást a mítoszok tavával kezdi, ahonnan minden meghatározó mű merít – és amihez hozzá is ad. Komolyan elemez néhány fontos, régi horrorregényt, és párat a hetvenes évtized javából. Megtudhatjuk, milyen formákat ölthet a vámpír, a farkasember és a megnevezhetetlen lény könyvben, filmvásznon és a tévé képernyőjén. Olvashatunk régi rádióműsorokról és képregényekről. Bosszantó önéletrajzi kitérőjében még a családjáról és gyermekkora helyszíneiről is megemlékezik. King kézen fogja Hűséges Olvasóját, és végigtáncol vele kedvenc műfaján. És hiába jelenti ki előre, hogy bocsánatot kér, ha rá találna lépni a lábunkra, ezt természetesen sohasem teszi meg. Lelkesen, sok tudással és jó humorral forgat meg minket a bálterem néha kihunyó csillárja alatt.

Stephen King - The ​Tommyknockers
Don't ​open the door... Bobbi Anderson and the other good folks of Haven, Maine, have sold their souls to reap the rewards of the most deadly evil this side of hell.

Stephen King - Stephen ​King Goes to the Movies
Stephen ​King provides commentary and introductions for 5 of his favorite short stories that have been turned into films: The Shawshank Redemption (based on the novella "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption") was nominated for seven Academy Awards. 1408 starred John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson and was a huge success in 2007. Children of the Corn was adapted into the film of the same name. The Mangler was inspired by King's loathing for laundry machines from his own experience working in a laundromat, and Hearts in Atlantis (based on "Low Men in Yellow Coats") starred Anthony Hopkins and gained critical acclaim for the wonderful performance of Anton Yelchin.

Stephen King - The ​Green Mile
The ​Green Mile: those who walk it do not return, because at the end of that walk is the room in which sits Cold Mountain Penitentiary's electric chair. In 1932 the newest resident on death row is John Coffey, a giant black man convicted of the brutal murder of two little girls. But nothing is as it seems with John Coffey, and around him unfolds a bizarre and horrifying story. Evil murderer or holy innocent - whichever he is - Coffey has strange powers which may yet offer salvation to others, even if they can do nothing to save him.

Stephen King - The ​Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
Following ​the enormous critical — Best Books of '98 in Publishers Weekly, San Francisco Chronicle, Denver Post, and others — and commercial success of Bag of Bones, Stephen King's bestselling hardcover novel to date (over 1.6 million shipped), comes a short novel with as much punch as a pinch-hit homerun. On a six-mile hike on the Maine-New Hampshire branch of the Appalachian Trail, nine-year-old Trisha McFarland quickly tires of the constant bickering between her older brother, Pete, and her recently divorced mother. But when she wanders off by herself, and then tries to catch up by attempting a shortcut, she becomes lost in a wilderness maze full of peril and terror. As night falls, Trisha has only her ingenuity as a defense against the elements, and only her courage and faith to withstand her mounting fears. For solace she tunes her Walkman to broadcast of Boston Red Sox baseball games and follows the gritty performances of her hero, relief pitcher Tom Gordon. And when her radio's reception begins to fade, Trisha imagines that Tom Gordon is with her--protecting her from an all-to-real enemy who has left a trail of slaughtered animals and mangled trees in the dense, dark woods...

Stephen King - Das ​Mädchen
Die ​neunjährige Trisha unternimmt mit ihrem Bruder und ihrer Mutter eine Wanderung. Trisha verlässt kurz den Weg - und verläuft sich im Wald. Sie ist allein. Noch niemand hat bemerkt, dass sie verschwunden ist. Keiner ist da, der sie beschützen kann - vor Hunger und Durst, Mückenschwärmen und wilden Tieren, Einsamkeit und Dunkelheit. Aber vor allem nicht vor dem, was sich in den Wäldern aufgemacht hat, die Neunjährige heimzusuchen...

Stephen King - Misery ​(olasz)
Paul ​Sheldon, un celebre scrittore, viene sequestrato in una casa isolata del Colorado da una sua fanatica ammiratrice. Affetta da gravi turbe psichiche, la donna non gli perdona di aver "eliminato" Misery, il suo personaggio preferito, e gli impone tra terribili sevizie di "resuscitarla" in un nuovo romanzo. Paul non ha scelta, pur rendendosi conto che in certi casi la salvezza può essere peggio della morte...

Stephen King - Minden ​sötét, csillag sehol
Stephen ​King új kötetének központi témája a bosszú, a megtorlás. Az első és leghosszabb történet helyszíne egy nebraskai tanyaház Hemingford Home-ban. A kisváros King rajongóinak a "Végítélet" című regényből már ismerős lehet: az abban szereplő Abigail anya itt lakott, és az Az című regényben felnőttkorában Ben Hanscom költözik ugyanide. Az "1922" mesterien adagolja a feszültséget, a szörnyű események és a gyarló központi figura sajátos, olykor komikus beszédfordulatai egyszerre rettentő és szórakoztató kontrasztban állnak. "A dagadt sofőr" története újabb és újabb váratlan csavarokat tartogat - itt egy zárkózott írónő vidéki felolvasóestje adja az apropót a horrorisztikus kifejlethez. A "Hosszabbítás jutányos áron" egyik szereplőjéről kiderül, tulajdonképpen ő maga a sátán, a záró történetet pedig - "Egy jó házasság" -, ugyan harmadik személyben, de szintén női nézőpontból láttatja az elbeszélő. Mind a négy írás lebilincselő izgalmakat tartogat, nem véletlen, hogy a már élő klasszikusnak számító King új kötete Bram Stoker-díjat kapott.

Stephen King - Danse ​Macabre (angol)
DANSE ​MACABRE is a unique combination of fantasy and autobiography, of classic horror writing honed to an unforgettable edge; an analysis of horror, terror and the supernatural in films, television and books by the bestselling master of the genre – Stephen King. Ranging across the whole spectrum of horror in popular culture and going back to the seminal classics of Count Dracula and Frankenstein, Stephen King describes his ideas on how horror works at many levels, and how he brings it to bear in his own inimitable novels…

Stephen King - Everything's ​Eventual
A ​new Stephen King book is always an event and Everything's Eventual--a collection of short stories that will be already familiar to King's die-hard fans--is a nicely timed appetiser for his next novel From a Buick 8. Collected here are the stories published in the New Yorker and King's highly successful e-book Riding the Bullet and for those of you who haven't already seen them, it will be no surprise to learn that King explores a multitude of emotions and themes, from pure horror to simple everyday life. It's a very mixed bag but each and every one hits the mark as vignettes of a master storyteller who is equally at home with a short story as with 700-page blockbuster. Particular standouts include the previous audio-only tales "LT's Theory of Pets" and "1408". Twists and turns abound and there are plenty of characters to love and loathe in equal measure. But King is at his best when writing about the nature of the human spirit and its enduring capacity for both good and evil--there is plenty here that explores both.

Stephen King - Gerald's ​Game
Alone ​in their bedroom, Jessie and Gerald Burlingame are playing a game of trust and control. But when her husband takes the game too far by handcuffing her to a bedpost, Jessie lashes out--with deadly results. But now she is trapped, with no way to escape the deathly quiet of the room. Over the next twenty-eight hours, Jessie will come face-to-face with her most terrifying nightmares that exist in the last place she would ever look...her mind!
