From the Publisher
YOU’VE BEEN HERE BEFORE….
A wonderful new store has opened in the little town of Castle Rock, Maine. Whatever your heart’s secret desire—sexual pleasure, wealth, power, or even more precious things—it’s for sale. And even though every item has a nerve-shattering price, the owner is always ready to make a bargain.
In this chilling novel by one of the most potent imaginations of our time, evil is on a shopping spree and out to scare you witless.

From Our Editors
Leland Gaunt, the strange, yet charismatic proprietor of Needful Things, knows what the folks in Castle Rock, Maine, really want. What's more, he knows what they're willing to pay for the objects they desire. But eventually, the townspeople learn the hard way that the price for Mr. Gaunt's objects is just too high. Needful Things is another nerve-shattering best-seller from master storyteller Stephen King.
