Description

STEPHEN KING: THE NON-FICTION.

by Rocky Wood and Justin Brooks.

Signed Limited Edition.

Have you ever heard of "My Little Serrated Security Blanket" by Stephen King? Its a very rare essay King wrote over a decade ago, and most fans have never had a chance to read it... until now!

Stephen King: The Non-Fiction fills all the gaps, providing significant detail on each of the most significant of these Non-Fiction Works; and a review of every other piece!

Authors Rocky Wood and Justin Brooks spent five years compiling this outstanding reference work, with the assistance of many of the leading King researchers, collectors and super-collectors; and access to Restricted Non-Fiction Works in Kings papers at the University of Maine, Orono.

Covering all Kings published and known unpublished works from 1959 to mid-2006, Stephen King: The Non-Fiction reveals for the first time dozens of pieces of non-fiction and their appearances that were previously unknown to King researchers.

If youve ever wanted to know more about Kings amazing and often controversial non-fiction, this is the reference work you must have. This is the ultimate volume to accompany Stephen King: Uncollected, Unpublished -- and this is the perfect companion in your collection for The Stephen King Universe and The Road to the Dark Tower.

Among new pieces reviewed in the book are:
o Two previously unknown King pieces from his high school days - sports reporting in the Lisbon Enterprise (these are not the articles King describes in On Writing); and a King non-fiction piece from his high school newspaper The Drum; along with the fascinating story of their rediscovery by the authors

o A 1967 column supporting the US troops in Vietnam

o Previously unknown pieces from The Maine Campus, such as a review of the Spring 1969 issue of Ubris (in which King published the first version of Night Surf, the precursor to The Stand); an amazing movie review; and letters to the editor (many highly amusing)

o Nine unpublished pieces of non-fiction reviewed in detail, including pieces held in the Restricted Boxes of Kings papers at the University of Maine - for the first time anywhere the authors describe these works in detail

o A large number of previously unknown letters to the editor

o Introductions to the work of other authors; and book reviews published in unusual venues

o Comprehensive reviews of Kings non-fiction in the Bangor Daily News and other Maine newspapers, some of it controversial

o Kings early baseball writing, most published in Maine newspapers

o Working from the original sources Wood and Brooks also identified and corrected numerous errors in the previous reporting of material - incorrect titles, dates, pagination and even publication information
