This box set features three bestselling works from internationally famous horror author, Stephen King. The undisputed King of Horror delivers in these three spine-tingling books that are sure to keep you up at night. Lisey’s Story is the story of a writer’s widow who must confront his demons after his death. Two years ago, Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, an award-winning, bestselling novelist and a very complicated man. Lisey knew there was a place Scott went—a place that both terrified and healed him, that 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, Lisey’s Story is about the wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love. Featuring fourteen horrific short stories, Everything’s Eventual is King in terrifying top form with stories that will keep you awake until daybreak. King takes readers down a road less traveled (for good reason) in the blockbuster ebook “Riding the Bullet.” Bad table service turns bloody when you stop in for “Lunch at the Gotham Café,” and terror becomes déjà vu all over again when you get “That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French.” Enter a nightmarish mindscape of unrelenting horror and shocking revelations that could only come from the imagination of the greatest storyteller of our time. Buckle your seatbelts for Mr. Mercedes. In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. In this high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre: a cookbook for cannibals . . . a used hangman's noose . . . a snuff film. An aging death-metal rock god, his taste for the unnatural is as widely known to his legions of fans as the notorious excesses of his youth. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, an item for sale on the Internet, a thing so terribly strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. I will "sell" my stepfather's ghost to the highest bidder. . . . For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. He isn't afraid. He has spent a lifetime coping with ghosts—of an abusive father, of the lovers he callously abandoned, of the bandmates he betrayed. What's one more? But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost, no benign conversation piece. It's the real thing. And suddenly the suit's previous owner is everywhere: behind the bedroom door . . . seated in Jude's restored vintage Mustang . . . standing outside his window . . . staring out from his widescreen TV. Waiting—with a gleaming razor blade on a chain dangling from one bony hand. . . . A multiple-award winner for his short fiction, author Joe Hill immediately vaults into the top echelon of dark fantasists with a blood-chilling roller-coaster ride of a novel, a masterwork brimming with relentless thrills and acid terror.

The poems in Night Mowing find their influence in the natural and the erotic; the biblical and the classical; the aesthetic and the spiritual. The landscape exists as both an ecstatic source of inspiration and as an endangered garden, and the narrator of these poems moves through that landscape in admiration and anguish: trying to preserve his joyful innocence while fully aware of the transience of all that he sees. Each poem in its specifics, whether focusing on a lover, a mountain, a dog, or a critic, wrestles with the universal and sacred, revealing the instinct of the poems to move toward purity and deep feeling even in dark times.

Once upon a time, before my sharks were finned, we met at sunset . . . In Tahiti I watched the sharks, to learn what they are like as animals and individuals. Over the years, I was accepted into their community and documented much intelligent behavior during our meetings at sunset. When I got an Internet connection, I found that no one had ever done such a thing, and that most people thought that sharks were vicious. After my findings were presented at an International symposium on cognition, the BBC came to film my work for Shark Week. But by then the sharks were being finned for the shark fin soup racket, and to add insult to injury, my efforts to get their news out of the country were blocked by the media. So I wrote down their story, so that the world would find out what they were like, the strange and startling things that happened, and the terrible loss when the shark finning industry arrived in those innocent islands . . .
