About (from the publisher)
When The Shining was first published in 1977, it left an
immediate and indelible impression. At once terrifying and intensely
human, it set the standard for the modern horror novel, and remains as
vital and affecting today as it was thirty-five years ago.
The story The Shining tells has assumed a permanent place in
American popular culture. It is, first of all, the story of a family:
Jack and Wendy Torrance and their extraordinarily gifted son, Danny. The
Torrances are a family in crisis. They have come to the Overlook Hotel,
a deluxe resort set in an isolated corner of the Colorado Rockies, to
serve as winter caretakers and to recover from a series of bruising
personal defeats. But, as they soon discover, the Overlook is more than a
hotel. It is a malign, voracious entity with an extravagantly violent
history, and it is determined to absorb the Torrance family—Danny in
particular—into its dark heart.
The Shining is a novel in which all of the varied
elements—scenes, setting, character—come triumphantly together. The
Overlook Hotel, with its haunted rooms, elaborate traps, and twisted
secrets, is one of the most compelling backdrops in all of horror
fiction. And the Torrances, with their tragic flaws, hidden wounds, and
profound, often frustrated love for one another, are as real and
credible as the people we encounter in our everyday lives. The result is
a novel with the narrative power and emotional resonance of a classic.
It is, and will always be, a consummate example of the storyteller’s
The Subterranean Press edition of The Shining is printed in two colors throughout.

the Overlook Hotel's past are revealed, and the hotel itself attempts to
laim the very souls of the Torrence family. Adapted into a cinematic
masterpiece of horror by legendary Stanley Kubrick -- featuring an
unforgettable performance by a demonic Jack Nicholson..
