A stunning collection of five boundary-pushing stories from Stephen King—now available from Encore for a great value.
The title story, Everything's Eventual, features Dinky Earnshaw—a nineteen-year-old pizza boy—who gets hired by a mysterious stranger for a unique and totally "eventual" (awesome) job. Read by Justin Long.
In Autopsy Room Four, the last thing Howard Cottrell remembers is entering the woods to find his golf ball. He wakes up as he is being rolled into an autopsy room. Read by Oliver Platt.
In The Little Sisters of Eluria, Roland is a gunslinger in a deserted town when he gets ambushed. Read by Boyd Gaines.
In Lucky Quarter, Darlene is a single mom struggling to raise two kids on her income as a chambermaid in Reno. When Room 322 leaves her a quarter for a tip, Darlene lets that quarter take her for a ride. Read by Judith Ivey.
The Road Virus Heads North follows an author who buys a creepy painting at a yard sale, painted by a metal-head neighbor just before he committed suicide. Read by Jay O. Sanders.
Intense, eerie, and instantly compelling, these five stories showcase the stunningly fertile imagination of perhaps the greatest storyteller of our time.
About the Author
Stephen King was born in Portland, Maine, on September 21, 1947. After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in English from the University of Maine at Orono in 1970, he became a teacher. His spare time was spent writing short stories and novels. King's first novel would never have been published if not for his wife. She removed the first few chapters from the garbage after King had thrown them away in frustration. Three months later, he received a $2,500 advance from Doubleday Publishing for the book that went on to sell a modest 13,000 hardcover copies. That book, Carrie, was about a girl with telekinetic powers who is tormented by bullies at school. She uses her power, in turn, to torment and eventually destroy her mean-spirited classmates. When United Artists released the film version in 1976, it was a critical and commercial success. The paperback version of the book, released after the movie, went on to sell more than two-and-a-half million copies. Many of King's other horror novels have been adapted into movies, including The Shining, Firestarter, Pet Semetary, Cujo, Misery, The Stand, and The Tommyknockers. Under the pseudonym Richard Bachman, King has written the books The Running Man, The Regulators, Thinner, The Long Walk, Roadwork, and Rage. King is one of the world's most successful writers, with more than 100 million copies of his works in print. Many of his books have been translated into foreign languages, and he writes new books at a rate of about one per year.
