About this title

Synopsis:

Master storyteller Stephen King presents the classic wondrously frightening ("Publishers Weekly") #1 "New York Times "bestseller about a writer s horrific and haunting pseudonym.
" I m back...I m back from the dead and you don t seem glad to see me at all, you ungrateful son of a bitch. "
After thirteen years of international bestseller stardom with his works of violent crime fiction, author George Stark is officially declared dead revealed by a national magazine to have been killed at the hands of the man who created him: the once well-regarded but now obscure writer Thad Beaumont. Thad s even gone so far as to stage a mock burial of his wildly successful pseudonym, complete with tombstone and the epitaph Not a Very Nice Guy. Although on the surface, it seems that Thad can finally concentrate on his own novels, there s a certain unease at the prospect of leaving George Stark behind. But that s nothing compared to the horror about to descend upon Thad s new life. There are the vicious, out-of-control nightmares, for starters. And how is he able to explain the fact that everyone connected to George Stark s untimely demise is now meeting a brutal end of their own in a pattern of homicidal savagery...and why each blood-soaked crime scene has Thad s fingerprints all over it? Thad Beaumont may have once believed that George Stark was running out of things to say, but he s going to find out just how wrong he is..."

Product Description:

Creating George Stark was easy. Getting rid of him won't be . . .

The sparrows are flying again. The idea - unbidden, inexplicable - haunts the edge of Thad Beaumont's mind.

Thad should be happy. For years now it is his secret persona 'George Stark', author of super-violent pulp thrillers, who has paid the family bills. But now, Thad is writing seriously again under his own name, and his menacing pseudonym has been buried forever.

And yet . . . the sparrows are flying again, and something is terribly wrong in Thad Beaumont's world.
