About the Book:
This new book of stories from the author of Carrie, The Shining, and 'Salem's Lot is a chilling collection of strange imaginings, ghoulish twists, and diabolical terror.
Stephen King, a modern master of the macabre, has brought together nineteen of his most unsettling short piecesâ€”bizarre tales of dark doings and unthinkable acts from the twilight regions where horror and madness take on eerie, unearthly forms... where noises in the walls and shadows by the bed are always signs of something dreadful on the prowl.
The settings are familiar and unsuspectedâ€”a high school, a factory, a truck stop, a laundry, a field of Nebraska corn. But in Stephen King's world and place can serve as devil's ground... if the time of night is propitious and the forces of darkness are strong, and the victims are caught just slightly off guard.
In the ominous, frightening world of Stephen King there are things unimagined, almost unspeakable, working the Night Shift:
â€¢ Strange presences in Jerusalem's Lot, a town abandoned for generationsâ€”and with good reason. No one who wanders there now, after the sun has set, ever comes back alive...
â€¢ And the hideous growths on the hands of a former astronautâ€”tiny round and yellow eyes popping through the skin, watching him, not liking what they see...
â€¢ And the mysterious little girl lost in a fierce Maine blizzard, calling out to her rescuers in a pitiful voice. But she walks on top of the deep, drifting snowâ€”and she leaves no tracks...
â€¢ And the grim-faced children in a Midwest town where no one seems to live past the age of nineteen...
â€¢ And the vermin in the second sub-celler of the old millâ€”abandoned to darkness for a hundred years and now assuming shapes and sizes nature never intended them to take...
â€¢ And the giant folding and steam pressing machine in the Blue Ribbon Laundryâ€”an impressive and reliable piece of equipment, until it got its first taste of human blood...

CEMETERY DANCE TO PUBLISH SIX VOLUME SET OF SPECIAL COLLECTIBLE EDITIONS OF STEPHEN KINGâ€™S DOUBLEDAY BOOKS BEGINNING WITH CARRIE
Specialty Publisher Cemetery Dance has signed an exclusive deal to produce a six volume set of special collectible editions of Stephen Kingâ€™s early books that were originally published by Doubleday back in the 1970s and early 1980s! These books are Carrie, â€˜Salemâ€™s Lot, The Shining, Night Shift, The Stand, and Pet Sematary, six classics of the horror genre and all-time Stephen King fan favorites!
The first title in this special six volume set is Carrie, which will be published later this year and is available for preorder immediately. Other volumes in this series will follow approximately every six months after that and several acclaimed artists are already creating stunning art for these books. These special editions will feature exclusive bonus features such as introductions, afterwords, artwork, and even deleted material in some cases.
Strong demand for these special editions of Stephen Kingâ€™s extraordinarily popular early books is expected, and collectors who preorder Carrie directly from us will be the first collectors offered the opportunity to order the next volume before the general public.
