Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Freelance writer Wood (Stephen King: The Non-Fiction) has assembled an alphabetized primer on Stephen King's finished and incomplete short stories, screenplays, and novels. Alphabetized entries detail specific works and characters. Each entry also discusses the origin of the work and the reappearance of characters or related themes elsewhere. Engaging and informative, this essential reference for horror and fantasy collections complements Bev Vincent's more biographical Stephen King Illustrated Companion.
