Maine roots -- Pre-Carrie: a hardscrabble life -- Doubleday Books: magic time-the making of the Master of Horror -- "The Bestsellasaurus Rex" stomps over to New American Library -- Scribner: building bridges -- Movies: screamplays -- The critics' corner -- Stephen King in cyberspace.
Profusely illustrated with nearly 200 photos, color illustrations by celebrated "Dark Tower" artist Michael Whelan, and black-and-white drawings by Maine artist Glenn Chadbourne; supplemented with interviews with friends, colleagues, and mentors who knew King well; looking at King's formative years in Durham, when he began writing fiction as a young teen, his college years in the turbulent sixties, his struggles with early poverty, working full-time as an English teacher while writing part-time, the long road to the publication of his first novel, Carrie, and the dozens of bestselling books and major screen adaptations that followed; covering his varied and prodigious output--this book is a comprehensive guide to the imaginative world of Stephen King.
