One of the most memorable in the series, this tale of a Halloween mask made of dead skin moulding itself onto a little girl’s face was enough to make you steer clear of fancy dress for life.

 Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes

The book responsible for convincing you that your father is either a hideous human/plant hybrid, a sinister clone, or a mix of both.

From the cover alone you can tell this is classic Goosebumps. Plus it has a mad scientist called Spidey with a haunted camera that will last “until the end of the world”.

Night of the Living Dummy

Stephen King Dishes Out Writing Advice in New Short Story..

The Bazaar of Bad Dreams

Stephen King`s Collection of Short Stories ‘ The Bazaar of Bad Dreams ‘ will be hitting shelves on 3 November.The book will feature 20 short stories – a mixture of previously published and new works.In this new collection he assembles, for the first time, recent stories that have never been published in a book. He introduces each with a passage about its origins or his motivations for writing it.

There are thrilling connections between stories; themes of morality, the afterlife, guilt, what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the mistakes of the past. “Afterlife” is about a man who died of colon cancer and keeps reliving the same life, repeating his mistakes over and over again. Several stories feature characters at the end of life, revisiting their crimes and misdemeanors. Other stories address what happens when someone discovers that he has supernatural powers—the columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries in “Obits;” the old judge in “The Dune” who, as a boy, canoed to a deserted island and saw names written in the sand, the names of people who then died in freak accidents. In “Morality,” King looks at how a marriage and two lives fall apart after the wife and husband enter into what seems, at first, a devil’s pact they can win.

Magnificent, eerie, utterly compelling, these stories comprise one of King’s finest gifts to his constant reader—“I made them especially for you,” says King. “Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.”

Stephen King will be giving his fans his first insights into his writing process since his 2000 book ‘On Writing’

A Monster Calls Film Adaptation Due in 2016..

A Monster Calls is currently being adapted for the big screen starring Sigourney Weaver and Liam Neeson.

The fantasy film is based on the best-selling novel by Patrick Ness, and follows the story of 13-year-old Conor, who tries to cope with the trauma of being bullied at school and his mother’s terminal illness by escaping into a fantasy world with the help of a tree monster, whose motives are suspect.

Aliens star Sigourney plays the boy’s tough grandmother, while Schindler’s List star Liam is cast as the sinister tree monster who visits Conor, played by youngster Lewis MacDougall.  The film is being directed by award-winning Juan Antonio Bayona, the man behind previous big screen hits including The Impossible and The Orphanage.

Plot Synopsis:

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

An unflinching, darkly funny, and deeply moving story of a boy, his seriously ill mother, and an unexpected monstrous visitor.

At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting– he’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. It’s ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. Something terrible and dangerous. It wants the truth. From the final idea of award-winning author Siobhan Dowd– whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself– Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief, loss, and monsters both real and imagined.
