The novel is a post-apocalyptic horror/fantasy story that re-works the scenario of King's earlier short story, "Night Surf." A longer edition of the novel was later released in May of 1990; King restored some text originally cut for brevity, added and revised sections, changed the time frame of the very good story from 1980 to 1990, and updated several pop culture references accordingly to the time.
