COLLECTOR’S SIGNED LIMITED EDITION OF FAIRY TALE BY STEPHEN KING


An exclusive signed and slipcased edition of FAIRY TALE, the stunning new novel from No. 1 bestseller Stephen King. Limited to 200 copies and available only through specialeditionbooks.co.uk from September 6, 2022.

Legendary storyteller Stephen King goes into the deepest well of his imagination in this spellbinding novel about a seventeen-year-old boy who inherits the keys to a parallel world where good and evil are at war, and the stakes could not be higher – for their world or ours.

Charlie Reade looks like a regular high school kid, great at baseball and football, a decent student. But he carries a heavy load. His mom was killed in a hit-and-run accident when he was ten, and grief drove his dad to drink. Charlie learned how to take care of himself – and his dad. Then, when Charlie is seventeen, he meets a dog named Radar and her ageing master, Howard Bowditch, a recluse in a big house at the top of a big hill, with a locked shed in the backyard. Sometimes strange sounds emerge from it.

Charlie starts doing jobs for Mr Bowditch and loses his heart to Radar. Then, when Bowditch dies, he leaves Charlie a cassette tape telling a story no one would believe. What Bowditch knows, and has kept secret all his long life, is that inside the shed is a portal to another world.

King’s storytelling in Fairy Tale soars. This is a magnificent and terrifying tale about another world than ours, in which good is pitted against overwhelming evil, and a heroic boy – and his dog – must lead the battle.

Reviews

One of the great storytellers of our time
Guardian
A fabulous teller of stories who can create an entire new world and make the reader live in it
Daily Express
A dazzlingly shapeshifting novel that, like its antihero, only pretends to be easy to pigeonhole. Disciplined but adventurous, equally good at action scenes and in-depth psychology
The Sunday Times on Billy Summers
A thriller with a surprisingly heartfelt and redemptive ending, Billy Summers is a compelling and engrossing read
