  • Stephen King fans have been to Castle Rock before, where Polly Chalmers runs You Sew and Sew and Sheriff Alan Pangborn is in charge of keeping the peace.  Leland Gaunt is a stranger in town - he's opened a shop called Needful Things. Brian Rusk, eleven years old, is his first customer and Brian finds what he most wants in all the world, a 1956 Sandy Koufax baseball card. By the end of the week, business is booming for Mr Gaunt. There's something for everyone at Needful Things. And of course, for everyone, there is a price. For Leland Gaunt, the pleasure of doing business lies mostly in seeing how much people will pay for their most secret dreams and desires - and at Needful Things the prices are high indeed. For Alan and Polly, this autumn week will be an awful test - of love, pain, will and desire. Above all it will be a test of their ability to grasp the true nature of their enemy. They may have a chance...and maybe not. Mr Gaunt knows that almost everything is for sale: love, hope and even the soul.
  • Author Martin Stillwater has the perfect life. He and his wife Paige are happy together. Their two daughters, Charlotte and Emily are intelligent, well-adjusted and healthy. Martin's novels are at last achieving success. Though he doesn't like the publicity, he's about to be in People magazine. So why does he experience sudden blackouts and feel such dread? The killer doesn't know his name, his past or his future, he has no family or friends, he doesn't know who gives him his assignments - only that the targets must die. He cries when he is overwhelmed by his loneliness, tortured by the meaninglessness of his life. He senses that beyond the horizon, there is a town, where a life awaits him and he has family and friends. Charlotte knows there is something wrong. The man stands, sits, moves and sounds like Daddy.  But he doesn't smile as often or as quickly as usual. And when he does smile, he's pretending. Daddy isn't Daddy....Cover art  by Lee Gibbons.
