Stephen Book

In the introduction to Skeleton Crew (1985), his second collection of stories, King pokes fun at his penchant for "literary elephantiasis," makes scatological jokes about his muse, confesses how much money he makes (gross and net), and tells a story about getting arrested one time when he was "suffused with the sort of towering, righteous rage that only drunk undergraduates can feel." He winds up with an invitation to a scary voyage: "Grab onto my arm now. Hold tight. We are going into a number of dark places, but I think I know the way." And he sure does. Skeleton Crew contains a superb short novel ("The Mist") that alone is worth the price of admission, plus two forgettable poems and 20 short stories on such themes as an evil toy monkey, a human-eating water slick, a machine that avenges murder, and unnatural creatures that inhabit the thick woods near Castle Rock, Maine. The short tales range from simply enjoyable to surprisingly good. In addition to "The Mist," the real standout is "The Reach," a beautifully subtle story about a great-grandmother who was born on a small island off the coast of Maine and has lived there her whole life. She has never been across "the Reach," the body of water between island and mainland. This is the story that King fans give to their friends who don't read horror in order to show them how literate, how charming a storyteller he can be. Don't miss it. --Fiona Webster Contents: 13 · Introduction · in 21 · The Mist · na Dark Forces, ed.

First serialised between 1866 and 1867 by the Newsagents' Publishing Company and Edwin J. Brett, The Skeleton Crew, or, Wildfire Ned was among the finest and most popular of the fierce ‘penny dreadful’ tales which flourished in the mid nineteenth century. Edward Warbeck, the eponymous Ned, pursues a quest to defeat murderous bandits known as the Skeleton Crew, led by the indefatigable Death-wing. Occultist A. E. Waite described this bloodthirsty tale as "suggestive of a film produced by the inmates of Bedlam" with a storyline "in a state of nightmare". The original vivid, and often terrifying, images of the skeleton outlaws are reproduced in this edition. This edition also includes a critical introduction, explanatory footnotes, and extensive contextual material.

Solving cold cases from the comfort of your living room… The Skeleton Crew provides an entree into the gritty and tumultuous world of Sherlock Holmes–wannabes who race to beat out law enforcement—and one another—at matching missing persons with unidentified remains. In America today, upwards of forty thousand people are dead and unaccounted for. These murder, suicide, and accident victims, separated from their names, are being adopted by the bizarre online world of amateur sleuths. It’s DIY CSI. The web sleuths pore over facial reconstructions (a sort of Facebook for the dead) and other online clues as they vie to solve cold cases and tally up personal scorecards of dead bodies. The Skeleton Crew delves into the macabre underside of the Internet, the fleeting nature of identity, and how even the most ordinary citizen with a laptop and a knack for puzzles can reinvent herself as a web sleuth.
