From Our Editors
There's something very ominous going on in Derry, Maine, but the town's teenagers seem to be the only ones noticing. But "it" is there all right, and its evil presence emerges from storm drains, sewers, sinks...everywhere, tormenting the teens and thrusting them into a nightmare they won't be able to forget. Now, years later, seven men and women return to their hometown to face the horror they fled from when they were teenagers in Stephen King's dark and chilling best-seller, It.
