Cover der englischen Taschenbuch-Ausgabe



Hardcover-Ausgabe (Hoffmann und Campe)
In der Wüste von Nevada geht ein Cadillac auf Tauchstation. Aus dem Abfluss eines Waschbeckens reckt sich ein Finger. Ein Scherzartikel sorgt für Gerechtigkeit. Die längst verstorbenen Größen des Rock and Roll tyrannisieren eine Kleinstadt. Ein Nachkomme des Grafen Dracula macht Amerikas Luftraum unsicher. Urlaubsreisende geraten in eine gespenstische Regenzeit. Ein Haus verwandelt sich in ein Raumschiff. Vampire lassen sich nicht entführen.
Geschichten, wie nur Stephen King sie erzählen kann – makaber, monströs, mörderisch. Voll verborgener Untiefen. Und gleichzeitig Erforschungen des Grenzbereichs zwischen Gut und Böse, zwischen Alptraum und Wirklichkeit. Die Orte des Geschehens reichen von New York, Los Angeles und London bis Castle Rock, dem legendären Schauplatz seiner Romane Cujo und In einer kleinen Stadt/Needful Things. Und das ist noch nicht alles. Auf der Spur des klassischen Kriminalromans versetzt King den Leser in die Welten von Conan Doyleein Mordfall, den nicht Sherlock Holmes, sondern Dr. Watson aufklärt – und Raymond Chandler.

Taschenbuch-Ausgabe (Hodder and Stoughton)
A solitary finger pokes out of a drain. Novelty teeth turn predatory. The Nevada desert swallows a Cadillac. Meanwhile, the legend of Castle Rock returns … and grows on you. What does it all mean? What else could it mean? Stephen King is back with a powerful new collection of stories – a vast, many-chambered cave of a volume.
