9780307292056: Stephen King: Three Novels - Carrie, Salem's Lot, The Shining

Overview One of the best-selling authors of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, Stephen King has made a career out of thrilling readers with his dark and disturbing masterpieces of the macabre. Stephen King: Three Novels brings together King's first three published novels for a trilogy of terror unparalleled in modern fiction. Carrie is the story of Carrie White, an outcast and alienated high-school student who discovers that she possesses formidable paranormal powers. While Carrie struggles privately to understand the full scope of her wild talents, her classmates escalate their cruel taunts, provoking her in dangerous ways that no one could dream of in their worst nightmares. In Salem's Lot, writer Ben Mears returns to his hometown in Maine to write a book on the local Marsten House, the site of an unsettling childhood experience that has haunted him ever since. The Marsten House has recently been purchased by an unseen new owner, and when the townspeople begin disappearing--and then reappearing as blood thirsty revenants--Ben realizes that house is a locus of evil that has attracted a master member of the Undead. The Shining takes place at the sinister Overlook Hotel, a retreat in Colorado that has catered for decades to the wealthy and absorbed the malignant spirit of horrors that have happened on its premises. When recovering alcoholic Jack Torrance arrives there one snowbound winter to serve as the hotel's new caretaker, little does he know that the evil place will exert its insidious influence to liberate his personal demons and add to its legacy of terror. Stephen King: Three Novels is a distinguished new addition to Barnes & Noble's line of leatherbound classics. Each volume features an elegant bonded-leather binding, distinctive gilt edging, decorative endpapers, and a colorful satin-ribbon bookmark. Collectible and durable, these volumes should be the cornerstones of every home library.
