Just After Sunset

Just After Sunset EXP: Stories by Stephen King
**Subtle, haunting, terrifying—this astonishing collection of short stories from #1 bestselling author Stephen King includes the short story “N.”**
Stephen King—who has written more than fifty books, dozens of number one *New York Times* bestsellers, and many unforgettable movies—delivers an astonishing collection of short stories, his first since *Everything’s Eventual* six years ago. As guest editor of the bestselling *Best American Short Stories 2007*, King spent over a year reading hundreds of stories. His renewed passion for the form is evident on every page of *Just After Sunset*. The stories in this collection have appeared in *The New Yorker*, *Playboy*, *McSweeney’s*, *The Paris Review*, *Esquire*, and other publications.
Who but Stephen King would turn a Port-O-San into a slimy birth canal, or a roadside honky-tonk into a place for endless love? A book salesman with a grievance might pick up a mute hitchhiker, not knowing the silent man in the passenger seat listens altogether too well. Or an exercise routine on a stationary bicycle, begun to reduce bad cholesterol, might take its rider on a captivating—and then terrifying—journey. Set on a remote key in Florida, “The Gingerbread Girl” is a riveting tale featuring a young woman as vulnerable—and resourceful—as Audrey Hepburn’s character in *Wait Until Dark*. In “Ayana,” a blind girl works a miracle with a kiss and the touch of her hand. For King, the line between the living and the dead is often blurry, and the seams that hold our reality intact might tear apart at any moment. In one of the longer stories here, “N.,” which broke new ground when it was adapted as a graphic digital entertainment, a psychiatric patient’s irrational thinking might create an apocalyptic threat in the Maine countryside…or keep the world from falling victim to it.
*Just After Sunset*—call it dusk, call it twilight, it’s a time when human intercourse takes on an unnatural cast, when nothing is quite as it appears, when the imagination begins to reach for shadows as they dissipate to darkness and living daylight can be scared right out of you. It’s the perfect time for Stephen King.

The Jigsaw Man

A BROKEN MAN DOWN ON HIS LUCK…
Michael Fox is a homeless man living in a garbage dumpster beneath the Carver Street Bridge in Buffalo, NY. He’s bitterly depressed and ready to commit suicide; anything to put an end to his miserable existence.
AN OFFER TOO GOOD TO REFUSE…
When a mysterious billionaire surgeon offers Michael two million dollars for his right arm, he thinks his luck might be about to change. Little does he know that the surgeon has other plans for him. His arm is only the beginning. Bit by bit other pieces of Michael’s body are surgically removed; his natural body stripped away and then reassembled using other harvested parts from thirteen different “donors’.
A MODERN DAY FRANKENSTEIN…
Now Fox isn’t sure if he’s a man or a monster, or whether or not he’d be better off dead. One thing he is sure of, though, he’s not checking out of this world until he finds a way to make the people responsible pay for turning him into the experimental nightmare known as… The Jigsaw Man.

Jason

*”Enjoying pain with your pleasure is something you either get, or you don’t. If you get it, then you don’t really need it explained, because you know how good it feels, and if you don’t get it then no amount of talking is going to convince you it makes sense.”*
But sometimes you have to explain the unexplainable, especially if the love of your life needs to understand, or she’ll leave you. Jason Schuyler is one of Anita Blake’s best friends and favorite werewolves, with benefits. J.J. is his lady love, an old flame from childhood who dances at one of the top ballet companies in New York. She’s accomplished, beautiful, and she’s crazy about him, too. Neither of them wants to be monogamous, so what could go wrong?
J.J. is enthusiastically bisexual, with an emphasis on the female side of things. She plans to keep sleeping with women, because Jason can’t meet that need, just like she can’t meet Jason’s need for rough sex and bondage. J.J. doesn’t understand why Jason isn’t content to go elsewhere for a need she can’t fulfil, so Jason asks Anita to help him explain.
Anita is having her own relationship growing pains with her only female lover ever, Jade. Jason suggests that J.J. might be able to help Anita with her girl problem, while she helps him with his kinky explanations. With some encouragement from a few other lovers in Anita’s life she reluctantly agrees, and J. J. makes plans to fly into town for an experience that none of them will ever forget.

Japanese Tales of Mystery & Imagination

**This collection of mystery and horror stories is regarded as Japan’s answer to Edgar Allan Poe.**
Japanese Tales of Mystery & Imagination, the first volume of its kind translated into English, is written with the quick tempo of the West but rich with the fantasy of the East. These nine bloodcurdling, chilling tales present a genre of literature largely unknown to readers outside Japan, including the strange story of a quadruple amputee and his perverse wife; the record of a man who creates a mysterious chamber of mirrors and discovers hidden pleasures within; the morbid confession of a maniac who envisions a career of foolproof ”psychological” murders; and the bizarre tale of a chair-maker who buries himself inside an armchair and enjoys the sordid ”loves” of the women who sit on his handiwork.
Lucid and packed with suspense, Edogawa Rampo’s stories found in Japanese Tales of Mystery & Imagination have enthralled Japanese readers for over half a century.
**Mystery stories include:**
* The Human Chair
* The Caterpillar
* Two Crippled Men
* The Traveler with the Pasted Rag Picture

**Recensie(s)**

Japan’s most famous mystery story writer is named Edogawa Rampo. Rampo took this name because he is a great admirer of Poe. When a visiting American asked [a noted Japanese psychologist] if the Japanese reading public didn’t confuse Rampo with the real Edgar Allan Poe, he replied, ‘Oh, no … Edogawa Rampo is much more famous.’ –New York Times Book Review Rampo is Japan’s foremost writer of mystery and tales of suspense. –The Journal of Asian Studies

‘Fictie is de waarheid binnen de leugen, en de waarheid van deze fictie is heel eenvoudig: magie bestaat.’ Stephen King
1957
Een zesjarig jongetje speelt in Derry tijdens een stortbui met een papieren bootje in de goot. Plotseling verdwijnt het bootje. Als het jongetje op zijn knieën in het donkere gat tuurt, staren twee felgele ogen hem aan…
1984
Twee jongens slaan op straat een man meedogenloos in elkaar en gooien hem in het water. Het slachtoffer lijkt door een clown uit het water te worden gehaald…

**Recensie(s)**

In 1957 wordt de 6-jarige George Denbrough op onverklaarbare en gruwelijke wijze vermoord in een riool. Zevenentwintig jaar later volgt een reeks angstaanjagende moorden en bovennatuurlijke gebeurtenissen die het stadje Derby teisteren. De geruchten dat een vreemde clown hier de hand in zou hebben, doen Bill Denbrough, Georges oudere broer, samen met enkele vrienden op onderzoek uitgaan. Stephen King is net als in alle andere landen ter wereld ook in Nederland de best verkochte horrorauteur met een waslijst van titels. Met ‘Het’ heeft hij een roman geschreven die als geheel nogal verward is. Toch bevat deze roman zeer spannende en ingenieuze fragmenten, en is het gehele boek op het obsederende ritme van de rock-and-roll geschreven. Voor de talrijke King-liefhebbers een aanrader, maar zeker niet zijn beste werk. Normale druk.Redactie

The Hellbound Heart

Clive Barker is widely acknowledged as the master of nerve-shattering horror. The Hellbound Heart is one of his best, one of the most dead-frightening stories you are likely to ever read, a story of the human heart and all the great terrors and ecstasies within. It was also the book behind the cult horror film, Hellraiser. In a quiet house on a quiet street Frank and Julia are having an affair. Not your ordinary affair. For Frank it began with his own insatiable sexual appetite, a mysterious lacquered box- and then an unhinged voyage through a netherworld of imaginable pleasures and unimaginable horror… Now Frank- or what is left of Frank -waits in an empty room. All he wants is to live as he was before. All Julia can do is bring him her unfulfilled passions…and a little flesh and blood…

Haunted: a novel of stories

EDITORIAL REVIEW: *Haunted* by Chuck Palahniuk is a novel made up of stories: Twenty-three of them, to be precise. Twenty-three of the most horrifying, hilarious, mind-blowing, stomach-churning tales you’ll ever encounter—sometimes all at once. They are told by people who have answered an ad headlined “Writers’ Retreat: Abandon Your Life for Three Months,” and who are led to believe that here they will leave behind all the distractions of “real life” that are keeping them from creating the masterpiece that is in them. But “here” turns out to be a cavernous and ornate old theater where they are utterly isolated from the outside world—and where heat and power and, most important, food are in increasingly short supply. And the more desperate the circumstances become, the more extreme the stories they tell—and the more devious their machinations become to make themselves the hero of the inevitable play/movie/nonfiction blockbuster that will surely be made from their plight.*Haunted* is on one level a satire of reality television—*The Real World* meets *Alive*. It draws from a great literary tradition—*The Canterbury Tales*, *The Decameron*, the English storytellers in the Villa Diodati who produced, among other works, *Frankenstein*—to tell an utterly contemporary tale of people desperate that their story be told at any cost. Appallingly entertaining, *Haunted* is Chuck Palahniuk at his finest—which means his most extreme and his most provocative.

Harvest Home

In this spellbinding horror novel, a family trades their crime-ridden city for country life—and encounters an evil more sinister than they could have imagined After watching his asthmatic daughter suffer in the foul city air, Theodore Constantine decides to get back to the land. When he and his wife search New England for the perfect nineteenth-century home, they find no township more charming, no countryside more idyllic than the farming village of Cornwall Coombe. Here they begin a new life: simple, pure, close to nature—and ultimately more terrifying than Manhattan’s darkest alley.   When the Constantines win the friendship of the town matriarch, the mysterious Widow Fortune, they are invited to join the ancient festival of Harvest Home, a ceremony whose quaintness disguises dark intentions. In this bucolic hamlet, where bootleggers work by moonlight and all of the villagers seem to share the same last name, the past is more present than outsiders can fathom—and something far more sinister than the annual harvest is about to rise out of the earth.   Credited as the inspiration for Stephen King’s Children of the Corn, Thomas Tryon’s chilling novel was ahead of its time when first published, and continues to provoke abject terror in readers.

Fears Unnamed

In a remarkably short period of time, Tim Lebbon has burst upon the scene and established himself as one of the best horror writers at work today. He is the winner of numerous awards, including a Bram Stoker Award. Critics have raved about his work and fans have eagerly embraced him as a contemporary master of the macabre. — Perhaps nowhere are the reasons for his popularity more evident than in this collection of four of his most chilling novellas. Two of these dark gems received British Fantasy Awards, and another was written specifically for this book and has never previously been published. Together, these terrifying tales form a perfect showcase for this startling talent, a window into a world of horrors that once experienced, can never be forgotten.

Everything’s eventual: 14 dark tales

EDITORIAL REVIEW: The first collection of stories Stephen King has published since *Nightmares & Dreamscapes* nine years ago, *Everything’s Eventual* includes one O. Henry Prize winner, two other award winners, four stories published by *The New Yorker,* and “Riding the Bullet,” King’s original e-book, which attracted over half a million online readers and became the most famous short story of the decade. “Riding the Bullet,” published here on paper for the first time, is the story of Alan Parker, who’s hitchhiking to see his dying mother but takes the wrong ride, farther than he ever intended. In “Lunch at the Gotham Café,” a sparring couple’s contentious lunch turns very, very bloody when the maître d’ gets out of sorts. “1408,” the audio story in print for the first time, is about a successful writer whose specialty is “Ten Nights in Ten Haunted Graveyards” or “Ten Nights in Ten Haunted Houses,” and though Room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel doesn’t kill him, he won’t be writing about ghosts anymore. And in “That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is In French,” terror is déjà vu at 16,000 feet. Whether writing about encounters with the dead, the near dead, or about the mundane dreads of life, from quitting smoking to yard sales, Stephen King is at the top of his form in the fourteen dark tales assembled in *Everything’s Eventual.* Intense, eerie, and instantly com-pelling, they announce the stunningly fertile imagination of perhaps the greatest storyteller of our time.
