From Our Editors

Here's Stephen King, the master of mayhem, back at his horrific best with Desperation. Desperation, Nevada, is a strange little mining town on the outskirts of dangerous and desolate Route 50. The China Pit, a manmade mountain, surrounds the town as well as an aura of evil - a danger that threatens all that visit it. Meet Collie Entragian, a deeply disturbed man who regulates traffic and thinks he's The Law. Believe me, you wouldn't want to cross him. That's what young David Carver figures out in this chilling, suspenseful novel which culminates in a ferocious battle between good and evil.
