Stephen King - Nightmares ​and Dreamscapes
A ​solitary finger pokes out of a drain. Novelty teeth turn predatory. The Nevada desert swallows a Cadillac. This collection of Stephen King stories takes a roller-coaster ride through the macabre and monstrous, via explorations of good and evil.

Stephen King - Doctor ​Sleep (német)
Eine ​mörderische Sekte hat es auf Kinder abgesehen, die das Shining haben. Stephen King kehrt zu einem seiner berühmtesten Romane zurück: Der kleine Danny, der in Hotel Overlook so unter seinem besessenen Vater hat leiden müssen, ist nun erwachsen. Aber die Vergangenheit lässt ihn nicht los. Auch das Mädchen Abra hat das Shining. Kann er sie retten? Die große Fortsetzung von Shining

Stephen King - Friedhof ​der Kuscheltiere
Die ​Creeds, eine junge Familie, ziehen von Chicago ins idyllische Kleinstädtchen Ludlow im US-Bundesstaat Maine. Der Ort scheint paradiesisch: Fast abgeschieden von der Zivilisation grenzt ihr wundervolles Zuhause an ein schier unendliches Waldgebiet. Nur eine am Haus vorbeiführende Schnellstraße stört die Idylle. Familienvater Louis lernt den 83jährigen Jud Crandall kennen, der das Haus gegenüber bewohnt und ihm bald der Vater wird, den er nie hatte. Jud zeigt der Familie einen seltsamen Tierfriedhof, der wenige Schritte vom Haus der Creeds entfernt liegt, ein alter Ort des Todes, von Kindern angelegt, die ihre Haustiere verloren. Es dauert nicht lange, und auch der Kater Winston Churchhill wird von einem auf der Schnellstraße dahinrasenden Truck überfahren. Damit beginnt für die Creeds eine Achterbahnfahrt des Grauens. Louis traut sich kaum, seiner Tochter Ellie von dem Verlust zu erzählen. Da zeigt Jud Louis einen Weg, Totes ins Leben zurückzuholen -- so scheint es zumindest. Doch die Toten kommen verändert zurück. Friedhof der Kuscheltiere ist ein wahrhaft grausames Buch. Stephen King zwingt den Leser nicht nur zu einer schmerzhaften Auseinandersetzung mit Tod und Verlust aus verschiedenen Perspektiven. Durch die Einbeziehung des Übernatürlichen gelingt es King außerdem, beim Leser das ganze Spektrum negativer Emotionen zu erzeugen: Trauer, Frustration, weil dem Bösen scheinbar nicht beizukommen ist, Aggression, schleichende Angst, die schließlich zu lähmender Gewißheit wird, Furcht und zuletzt nacktes Entsetzen. Damit ist Friedhof der Kuscheltiere ein Meisterwerk des Horrors, das jedoch aufgrund der Schilderung des übernatürlichen, namenlosen Entsetzens sicher nicht in Kinderhände gehört. Ein Buch mit Alptraumgarantie.

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 - The ​Eyes of the Dragon
Once ​upon a time, there was a terror... A tale of archetypal heroes and sweeping adventures, of dragons and princes and evil wizards, here is epic fantasy as only Stephen King could envision it. A kingdom is in turmoil after old King Roland dies and his worthy successor, Prince Peter, is imprisoned by the evil Flagg and his pawn, young Prince Thomas. But Flagg's evil plot is not perfect, for he knows naught of Thomas's terrible secret--or Prince Peter's daring plan to escape to claim what is rightfully his ... Stephen King has taken the classic fairy tale and transformed it into a masterpiece of fiction for the ages.

Stephen King - UR
Wesley ​Smith, an English teacher at a college in Kentucky, wants to go "New School" and buys himself a Kindle. Due to a minor mistake in his credit card number, he isn't sent a usual Kindle—but a pink one, even though Kindles are always white. Slowly he realizes that this edition was meant for another Wesley Smith—his own self in a parallel universe.

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 ​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 - 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 - Álomcsapda
Különös ​fényjelenségeket észlelnek Maine vadregényes erdei fölött. Idegen bolygóról?, galaxisból? származó űrhajó landol a környéken, s a szürke kis földönkívüliek nemcsak az ott lakók testét fertőzik meg valami undorító gombás kórsággal, de a tudatukat is megtámadják. Az emberek olvassák egymás gondolatait, és az idegen lények hatására olykor nem uraik cselekedeteiknek. Természetesen közbeavatkozik a hadsereg, s egy paranoiás egykori kommandós vezetésével lezárja a területet. Vadászidény van, s négy jó barát is a karanténban reked; ők kora ifjúságuktól ide járnak vadászni. Rejtélyes okból ők másként reagálnak a fertőzésre. Először értetlenül szemlélik az eseményeket, majd megkezdődik a gyilkos hajsza: egyrészt megpróbálják megakadályozni a szürke lényeket, hogy teljesítsék küldetésüket, másrészt szembeszállnak az őrült katonával, aki számára csak egyetlen megoldás létezik: az öldöklés. A szálak Derrybe vezetnek (ahol sok évvel azelőtt a nyomasztó emlékű Az, a bohócmaszkos szörnyeteg szedte gyermek áldozatait), a négy férfi szellemileg visszamaradt gyermekkori barátjához, aki különös képességekkel rendelkezik… Vajon bezárul-e az álomcsapda? Stephen King feszültséggel teli, lebilincselő regényéből megtudhatja Kedves Olvasó. Az időközben elkészült filmváltozatot Lawrence Kasdan rendezte - a főbb szerepekben Morgan Freeman, Thomas Jane és Tom Sizemore látható.

Stephen King - Lisey's ​Story
Lisey ​Debusher Landon lost her husband Scott two years ago, after a twenty five year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Lisey knew there was a place Scott went -- a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live. Now it's Lisey's turn to face Scott's demons, Lisey's turn to go to Boo'ya Moon. What begins as a widow's effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited. Perhaps King's most personal and powerful novel ever, Lisey's Story is about the wellspings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love.

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 - 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 - Ezüst ​pisztolygolyók
A ​hold minden lelkes, avatott vagy amatőr bámulójának feltünhetett, hogy jó néhány pontatlanságot engedtem meg magamnak a történeti elképzelt ideje, az 1984-es év holdciklusait illetően. Ezúton üzenem azon kedves olvasóimnak, akik talán azt gondolják,hogy jobb jutott eszembe, hogy de igen... csak túlságosan nagy volt a kísértés, és nem tudtam neki ellenállni.

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

Stephen King - The ​Drawing of the Three
Once ​again, Stephen King masterfully interweaves dark, evocative fantasy and icy realism, as his hero, Roland, the Last Gunslinger, pursues his quest for the Dark Tower. Roaming another world that is a nightmarishly distorted mirror image of our own, he is drawn through a mysterious door that brings him into 1980s America. Here he links forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean and with beautiful, brilliant and brave Odetta Holmes, in a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies. With a storytelling skill that is sheer magic, and with breathtaking boldness of imagination, Stephen King has risen to the peak of his power to create a compelling epic that is at once enigmatic and familiar...and always compulsively readable.

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 - 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.
