  • The Stephen King Companion is an authoritative look at horror author King’s personal life and professional career, from Carrie to The Bazaar of Bad Dreams.

    King expert George Beahm, who has published extensively about Maine’s main author, is your seasoned guide to the imaginative world of Stephen King, covering his varied and prodigious output: juvenalia, short fiction, limited edition books, bestselling novels, and film adaptations.

    The book is also profusely illustrated with nearly 200 photos, color illustrations by celebrated “Dark Tower” artist Michael Whelan, and black-and-white drawings by Maine artist Glenn Chadbourne.

    Supplemented with interviews with friends, colleagues, and mentors who knew King well, this book looks at his formative years in Durham, when he began writing fiction as a young teen, his college years in the turbulent sixties, his struggles with early poverty, working full-time as an English teacher while writing part-time, the long road to the publication of his first novel, Carrie, and the dozens of bestselling books and major screen adaptations that followed.

    For fans old and new, The Stephen King Companion is a comprehensive look at America’s best-loved bogeyman.
