The Bachman Books: Four Early Novels
" The first two of these four novels were completed before Carrie was even begun. The others were written in between some of Stephen King's most popular best sellers to date. And each of them is marked by the undeniable fascination of one of the most brilliant imaginations of our time. The name on the cover was "Richard Bachman," but the imagination inside could only belong to Stephen King. For years readers of these four novels wrote to "Bachman" asking if the author was really Stephen King writing under a pseudonym. At last the secret is out--and so are these four spellbinding tales of future shock and suspense, now available in one volume. Here is Rage, a story about an "extra" ordinary high school student...a chilling glimpse into a future America where a macabre marathon, The long walk, is a contest with death...Roadwork, an eerie variation on the theme of "Home Sweet Home"...and a nightmare vision of a ghoulish game show, The running man, where you be your life--literally."--Book Jacket.
