The Stephen King Companion is an authoritative look at horror author King's personal life and professional career, from Carrie to The Bazaar of Bad Dreams. King expert George Beahm, who has published extensively about Maine's main author, is your seasoned guide to the imaginative world of Stephen King, covering his varied and prodigious output: juvenalia, short fiction, limited edition books, bestselling novels, and film adaptations. The book is also profusely illustrated with nearly 200 photos, color illustrations by celebrated "Dark Tower" artist Michael Whelan, and black-and-white drawings by Maine artist Glenn Chadbourne. Supplemented with interviews with friends, colleagues, and mentors who knew King well, this book looks at his formative years in Durham, when he began writing fiction as a young teen, his college years in the turbulent sixties, his struggles with early poverty, working full-time as an English teacher while writing part-time, the long road to the publication of his first novel, Carrie, and the dozens of bestselling books and major screen adaptations that followed. For fans old and new, The Stephen King Companion is a comprehensive look at America's best-loved bogeyman.

Scott nimmt rasend schnell ab. Sein korpulentes Aussehen ändert sich trotzdem nicht. Und noch unheimlicher: Wenn er auf die Waage steigt, zeigt sie jeweils das gleiche Gewicht an, egal wie viel er momentan trägt, ob Kleidung oder gar Hanteln. Scott hat Angst, dass man ihn zum medizinischen Versuchskaninchen macht. Aber er muss es jemand erzählen. Zu Dr. Ellis hat er Vertrauen, aber auch der weiß keinen Rat. In seiner netten Wohngegend in der Kleinstadt Castle Rock gerät Scott in einen eskalierenden Kleinkrieg. Der Hund der neuen Nachbarn – zwei Lesben – verrichtet sein Geschäft ständig bei ihm im Vorgarten. Die eine Frau ist eigentlich recht freundlich, die andere aber eiskalt. Die beiden haben gerade ein Restaurant eröffnet, von dem sie sich viel erhoffen. Die Einwohner von Castle Rock wollen aber nichts mit Homopaaren zu tun haben, da ist großer Ärger vorprogrammiert. Als Scott endlich kapiert, was Vorurteile in einer Gemeinschaft anrichten, überwindet er den eigenen Groll und tut sich mit den beiden zusammen. Merkwürdige Allianzen, der jährliche Stadtlauf und Scotts mysteriöses Leiden fördern bei sich und anderen eine Menschlichkeit zutage, die zuvor unter einer herzlosen Bequemlichkeit vergraben lag.

Enter once more the world of Roland Deschain—and the world of the Dark Tower...presented in a stunning graphic novel form that will unlock the doorways to terrifying secrets and bold storytelling as part of the dark fantasy masterwork and magnum opus from #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King. “The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.” With these unforgettable words, millions of readers were introduced to Stephen King’s iconic character Roland Deschain of Gilead. Roland is the last of his kind, a “gunslinger” charged with protecting whatever goodness and light remains in his world—a world that “moved on,” as they say. In this desolate reality—a dangerous land filled with ancient technology and deadly magic, and yet one that mirrors our own in frightening ways—Roland is on a spellbinding and soul-shattering quest to locate and somehow save the mystical nexus of all worlds, all universes: the Dark Tower. Now, in the graphic novel series adaptation Stephen King's The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger, originally published by Marvel Comics in single-issue form and creatively overseen by Stephen King himself, the full story of Roland's troubled past and ongoing saga is revealed. Sumptuously drawn by Richard Isanove, Sean Phillips, Luke Ross, and Michael Lark, plotted by longtime Stephen King expert Robin Furth, and scripted by New York Times bestselling author Peter David, The Gunslinger adaptation is an extraordinary and terrifying journey—ultimately serving as the perfect introduction for new readers to Stephen King’s modern literary classic The Dark Tower, while giving longtime fans thrilling adventures transformed from his blockbuster novels. Now near death following a vicious attack by the Slow Mutants, Roland Deschain is taken in by a group of nuns who specialize in anything but the healing arts. These hideous, corpse-like creatures—the Little Sisters of Eluria—have murder on their twisted minds. And in his current condition, there’s almost nothing that the last gunslinger can do to prevent their tender mercies from taking hold….
