Best-selling author of the odd and master of the macabre Stephen King is coming hot off the press with an unnerving collection of four new novellas—Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, The Life of Chuck, Rat, and the title story If It Bleeds—each pulling you into intriguing and frightening places. Classic films like Stand By Me & Shawshank Redemption both grew out of the author’s earlier novellas. In his return to the shorter, punchier form, King is sure to stir up the strange in ways no writer has before or since. Hardcover due out April 21.
