About this title

Synopsis:

In 1989, George Beahm's "Stephen King Companion" appeared on the scene and became an instant hit with King fans. It was an orgy of King information, packed with interviews, essays, inside information, rare photographs, and tantalizing trivia. The "Companion" leaped onto the bestseller lists, was snapped up by the book clubs, and became known as an esential resource on King and his work.

From Library Journal:

Written for the casually curious as well as the dedicated fan, the Companion should have a lot of appeal to both. A potpourri, it includes original and reprinted pieces relating to King, many from uncommon sources, including a lengthy 1983 Playboy magazine interview which holds up well. Part 1 deals with the public King--life, publications, family (including his author/wife, Tabitha). Part 2 is for fans--a look at a King newsletter, the Stephen King convention, specialty book and cassette publishers, and more. Part 3 discusses every book by King, with synopses, critical remarks, TV tie-ins, etc., often with comment from King himself. Appendixes list books in print by or about King, films, TV, and audio cassettes based on King tales, and detailed notes on collecting King. Some information will date rapidly. Libraries should certainly have Douglas E. Winter's Stephen King: The Act of Darkness (LJ 11/15/84; 1986. rev. ed.), a critical analysis that also provides synopses, film adaptations, and a comprehensive bibliography, but Beahm's book is a useful current supplement, with a different approach, for public libraries.
