The world's bestselling author, Stephen King, presents four novellas of the dark side in the tradition of his own "Different Seasons" in "Four Past Midnight":
A domestic flight makes an unusual stopover in the land of "The Langoliers; " a writer confronts the reality of his success in "Secret Window, Secret Garden; " after being scolded by "The Library Policeman, " you'll never return a book late again; and once again the community of Castle Rock finds itself besieged by a nasty pooch in "The Sun Dog."
Four minutes past the hour, four times the terror, four tales for the price of one!
Praise for "Four Past Midnight":
"These four novellas demonstrate the qualities that have made King by far the world's most popular author."-- "Chicago Tribune"
"These stories will grab and not let go."-- "Washington Post"
"Four spellbinding tales of evil."-- "Playboy"
