The short story OBITS won the 2016 Edgar for best short story.
The No.1 bestselling author delivers an ´outstanding´ (USA Today) collection of thrilling stories, introducing each one with a fascinating piece on when, where or how he came to write it.
There is a treasure here for every reader: a man who keeps reliving exactly the same life, repeating his mistakes over and over again; a columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries; a poignant tale about the end of the human race and a firework competition between neighbours which reaches an explosive climax. And, exclusive to this paperback edition (and the eBook from 6 September), a brand new story ´Cookie Jar´.
´I made them especially for you,´ says King. ´Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.´
