Stephen King könyvei a rukkolán


Stephen King - Coffey ​keze
A ​siralomházban egymást követik a szokatlan események. Edgecombe blokkparancsnok kíváncsiságát mindinkább fölkelti a kettős gyermekgyilkosságért elítélt fekete óriás, és nyomozása újabb furcsaságokra derít fenyt. John Coffey egy napon rendkívüli dolgot művel, mely talán örökre megváltoztatja a halálsor életét.

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 - Desperation
Desperation ​is a deserted mining town in the Nevada desert. It`s not a place to visit by choice, and the few unhappy travellers who are forced to stop there witness the familiar-looking town undergo a terrible transformation.

Elke mobiele beller, overal ter wereld. Tien uur later zijn de meeste mensen dood of waanzinnig geworden. De overlevenden worden geconfronteerd met verbijsterende chaos, tomeloos geweld en hordes bloeddorstige - ja wat eigenlijk? Samen met ene Tom en een tiener die Alice heet, ontvlucht Clay het brandende, gedoemde Boston, in een wanhopige poging zijn zoon te bereiken voordat die zijn mobieltje aanzet. Alleen al in Amerika zijn er 193 miljoen mobiele telefoons. Wie heeft er geen? Deze maar al te plausibele, bloedstollend spannende nieuwe King vraagt niet alleen: 'Waar ben je nu?' maar geeft ook een definitief antwoord... Stephen King woont in Maine met zijn vrouw, de schrijfster Tabitha King. Hij bezit geen mobiele telefoon.

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..."

Jackson and was a huge success in 2007. Children of the Corn was adapted into the film of the same name.

Stephen King - Joe Hill - In ​the Tall Grass
Mile ​81 meets “N.” in this eBook collaboration between Stephen King and Joe Hill. As USA TODAY said of Stephen King’s Mile 81: “Park and scream. Could there be any better place to set a horror story than an abandoned rest stop?” In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they’ve lost one another. The boy’s cries are more and more desperate. What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver.

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 - 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.

When the moon grows fat, a paralyzing fear sweeps through Tarker Mills. For snarls that sound like human words can be heard whining through the wind.

Stephen King - Needful ​Things
There ​was a new shop in town. Run by a stranger. Needful Things, the sign said. The oddest name. A name that caused some gossip and speculation among the good folks of Castle Rock, Maine, while they waited for opening day. Eleven-year-old Brian Rusk was the first customer and he got just what he wanted, a very rare 1956 Sandy Koufax baseball card. Signed. Cyndi Rose Martin was next. A Lalique vase. A perfect match for her living room decor. Something for everyone. Something you really had to have. And always at a price you could just about afford. The cash price that is. Because there was another price. There always is when your heart’s most secret, true desire is for sale…

Stephen King - Cementerio ​de animales
Un ​hermoso día de agosto, el doctor Louis Creed llega con su esposa Rachel, sus hijos Eileen y Gage y el gato Church a su nuevo hogar, una gran casa situada en las afueras de Ludlow, Nueva Inglaterra. El lugar parece tranquilo y lo bastante alejado del ajetreo urbano. Detrás de la casa de los Creed hay incluso un campo de enterramientos, en donde los niños del lugar han sepultado a sus animales durante generaciones: el Cementerio de animales. Pero enseguida empieza la pesadilla... al menos para Louis. En su primer día de trabajo en el centro médico de la Universidad de Maine, le llevan el cuerpo horriblemente mutilado del estudiante Victor Pascow. El joven trata de advertir al doctor Creed acerca del lugar situado detrás del Cementerio de animales, usado en tiempos antiguos por los indios MicMac e impregnado de un espíritu diabólico. El gato Church muere atropellado por un camión y Judd Crandall, un anciano vecino, persuade a Louis para que entierre al animalito en el cementerio de animales. Con ello, el doctor invoca fuerzas ocultas que es mejor no perturbar, y cuando la tragedia hiere a la familia Creed, Louis se embarca en una terrorífica aventura con consecuencias que van más allá de la comprensión humana... o de la cordura.

Stephen King - Just ​After Sunset
What ​would you do if your everyday world were turned upside down in an instant? Here are twelve riveting stories about relationships with unexpected twists. Be very careful what you wish for. Read about the acts of kindness from strangers: 'workmen' who intervene in the obsessive exercise regime of a middle aged artist in Stationary Bike; the unexpected visitor, a blind girl, whose kiss saves a dying man; a mute hitchhiker who helps a driver get over his wife's affair. There are tales of obsession and fights for power: The Gingerbread Girl runs and runs to ease her pain; two neighbours contesting for a piece of land get into A Very Tight Place and a man who witnesses an act of domestic violence in a Rest Stop needs to step into his identity as a crime writer if he's to intervene. Then there are the unexpected outside events which turn people's worlds upside down or the right way up: a young couple, David and Willa who are derailed on a train find themselves seeking the bright lights in a nearby town - and playing the jukebox, for eternity; an older couple want to punctuate the banal humdrum with something unusual - until it happens.

Stephen King - Revival ​(német)
Revival ​erzählt die Geschichte des Jungen Jamie und des Predigers Charles Jacobs, deren Wege sich von den Sechzigern bis heute auf unglückselige Weise immer wieder kreuzen. Sie steuert auf ein beängstigendes, auswegloses Ende zu, wie es selbst Stephen King bislang nicht zu Papier gebracht hat, und ist gleichzeitig Abrechnung mit dem Religionsfanatismus in unserem hoch technisierten Zeitalter und Verbeugung vor den Größen des klassischen Horrors.

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 - Richard Chizmar - Gwendy's ​Button Box
The ​little 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 has taken the stairs, which are held by strong (if time-rusted) iron bolts and zig-zag up the cliffside. At the top of the stairs, Gwendy catches her breath and listens to the shouts of the kids on the playground. From a bit farther away comes the chink of an aluminum bat hitting a baseball as the Senior League kids practice for the Labor Day charity game. One day, a stranger calls to Gwendy: "Hey, girl. Come on over here for a bit. We ought to palaver, you and me." On a bench in the shade sits a man in black jeans, a black coat like for a suit, and a white shirt unbuttoned at the top. On his head is a small neat black hat. The time will come when Gwendy has nightmares about that hat... Journey back to Castle Rock again 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_. This book will be a Cemetery Dance Publications exclusive with no other editions currently planned anywhere in the world!

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?
