Under the Dome
By Stephen King
On the heels of the stunning success of Under the Dome, Hodder's bestselling Stephen King title this decade, comes a collection of four brand new, darkly riveting and intimate stories.
Celebrated storyteller Stephen King returns to his roots in this tour de force featuring more than 100 characters - some heroic, some diabolical - and a supernatural element as baffling and chilling as any he's ever conjured.
On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as 'the dome' comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. Dale Barbara, Iraq vet, teams up with a few intrepid citizens against the town's corrupt politician. But time, under the dome, is running out....
UNDER THE DOME is King at his epic best and will capture a brand new readership as well as thrilling his existing fans.
Stephen King is the highly acclaimed author of more than fifty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. Among his most recent are: Under the Dome, Just After Sunset, Cell, and Lisey's Story. His acclaimed non-fiction book On Writing, is also a bestseller. He was the recipient of the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He lives in Maine with his wife, novelist Tabitha King.
