GWENDY’S MAGIC FEATHER:  A New Castle Rock Novel!

June 27, 2019

Hodder & Stoughton will publish Gwendy’s Magic Feather by Richard Chizmar, with a foreword by Stephen King, on 19 November, 2019.

From New York Times bestseller Richard Chizmar comes the breathtaking sequel to Gwendy’s Button Box which he co-wrote with Stephen King.  The book has a brilliant foreword by Stephen King discussing this first novel ever set in Castle Rock written by another author and lovely illustrations by Keith Minnion.

Something evil has swept into the small Maine town of Castle Rock on the heels of the latest winter storm. Sheriff Norris Ridgewick and his team are desperately searching for two missing girls, but time is running out to bring them home alive.

At 37, Gwendy Peterson couldn’t be more different from the self-conscious teenager who once spent a summer running up Castle Rock’s Suicide Stairs.  But when the mysterious button box from that summer unexpectedly reappears, she goes back to her home town where she might just be able to help rescue the girls and stop a terrifyingly dangerous man in his tracks…

Prepare to return again to Stephen King’s Castle Rock, the sleepy little town built on a bedrock of deep, dark secrets, which is about to awaken from its quiet slumber once more.

Praise for Gwendy’s Button Box by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar:


‘Man, I love this story! The whole thing just races and feels so right-sized and so scarily and sadly relevant. Loved the characters…and the sense of one little girl’s connection to the whole world through this weird device. It all just sang’ – JJ Abrams

A resonant novella set in one of King’s signature locales: the small town of Castle Rock, Maine’ – Washington Post
