It came from the mind of Stephen King…

You’ve seen the films, now read the original stories – and get a unique insight into Stephen King’s take on the productions.

For Stephen King, the experience of seeing his works of short fiction adapted for major Hollywood films has created its own tales, and he shares them here: five of his celebrated short stories, plus King’s personal commentary, his all-new introductions, and essential, behind-the-scenes revelations.

Read on to discover the truth behind:

The Shawshank Redemption (based on the novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption), 1408, Children of the Corn, The Mangler, Hearts in Atlantis (based on Low Men in Yellow Coats).


Storytelling - the ability to make the listener or the reader need to know, demand to know, what happens next is a gift . . . Stephen King has this gift in spades

'To tell the truth, I just don't know what it is about that film that resonates with so many people. But everywhere I go people who have seen it react to it fondly. And I get the same kind of dialogue about it being one of, if not the, favourite movie.'
Morgan Freeman, on <i>The Shawshank Redemption</i>
'There isn't a day when I'm not approached about that film, approached by people who are so . . . thankful, who say how important that film was to them, and how many times they've seen it: twenty, thirty, forty times . . .'
Tim Robbins on <i>The Shawshank Redemption</i>
