OVERVIEW: Fiction featured: "Ballad of the Flexible Bullet", "Jumper", "Rush Call", and the first and ONLY appearance of "In The Deathroom" !! This exclusive anthology of unpublished stories, hard-to-find nonfiction pieces, and little-known interviews and articles are collected for the only time anywhere. Secret Windows is a companion to On Writing in that it spans King's entire career and illuminates his spirit, personality, and values. "Jumper" is a serialized story that King wrote as a boy for his brother's neighborhood newsletter. This tale of an imminent suicide prefigures the tension and violence of his horror novels. In "An Evening with Stephen King," King jokes about his "touch of . . . Obsessive Compulsive Disorder" and addresses the death penalty and The Green Mile. He shares his enthusiasm for the horror fiction of Jack Ketchum, Shirley Jackson and Jack Finney. And he gives wonderful interviews that capture his mind in action: spontaneous, subversive, quirky, yet moral and aesthetically serious. In his introduction, King's friend and collaborator Peter Straub praises King's "startling immediacy: "[He] seems to drift up from the page and wrap an arm over the reader's shoulders.
