Release Date: June 7th, 2016

Warning! Spoilers ahead for the Bill Hodges Trilogy – Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch.

In 2009, a suicide obsessed killer drove a Mercedes-Benz through a crowd of unemployed, waiting for a job fair to open up, murdering and maiming as many as he could. Retired cop Bill Hodges obsessed about catching “Mr. Mercedes,” cannot stop the chase. With the help of a young boy and a a woman with “graying hair and the face of a neurotic teenager,” the trio managed to put the killer, Brady Hartsfield, down and in a coma. Mr. Mercedes was riveting excitement on every page. Finders Keepers, puts Hartsfield’s story on hold as Hodges, Jerome, and Holly reunite to save a boy from an author-obsessed lunatic killer. Although it strayed from the first novel, the connecting tendrils satisfied that basic reader need. Now, in End of Watch, Brady Hartsfield is awake and plotting, and it’s up to Hodges and the gang to stop him.

A few spoilers from End of Watch by Stephen King below.

The Bazaar of Bad Dreams: Stories
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle | Audible Audiobook | Audio CD
By Stephen King
Scribner Books | Simon & Schuster
Release Date: November 3, 2015

The newest Stephen King is always a literary event, and today is no exception. The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams brings us a collection of visits to the dark side – the side of no happy endings. Although my favorite Stephen King creations are his giant 1,000+ pagers where you get lost inside the perilous journey, he tells these little stories very well too. His short stories are always like little scary appetizers that almost always end ambiguously. For you movie-over-books people (nothing wrong with that), they are like the tales in Creepshow – short and eerie, with bad, weird, or worse endings left to your own imagination.

Check out the synopsis and the list of stories below.
