There is no other writer out there quite like Stephen King. With over 60 novels published and 200 short stories under his belt, the prolific author has a well-deserved reputation as the reigning King of Horror. His stories have shocked, terrified, and thrilled readers for over four decades, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Just when you think he’s done it all, he roars back with a new nightmare.
These days, there’s no shortage of Stephen King in our lives. Between the recent hit adaptations of the classic clown horror IT, the Hulu series Castle Rock, and the upcoming miniseries The Stand, Stephen King's influence is all around us. And there’s no better time than the present to treat yourself and your fellow dark-hearted loved ones to one of these Stephen King gifts.
