An introduction to the Stephen King library from his UK editor

Dear Reader,

As you may know, Stephen King is one of the world’s bestselling writers ever and there is a very good reason for that: he writes books that draw you in and are impossible to put down.

Many readers are surprised to discover that Stephen King wrote the stories of their favourite films The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, Stand by Me and Misery. When they make the connection, they often come to us to ask which King they should read first. Other readers say they enjoyed his ‘horror’ stories in their teens and are ready to be reacquainted with the amazing range and literary power of his work. And then of course there is a new generation of readers who will grow up reading Stephen King.

So… I am thrilled to present his complete backlist, grouped here into ten distinct categories so that you can pick the right book for you – whether to discuss at your Reading Group or read through terrified fingers – although, of course, I recommend reading them all.

Philippa Pride, Editor
