Life is Not Always a Butcher's Game. Sometimes the Prizes Are Real. Sometimes They're Precious. All-time best-selling author STEPHEN KING returns with a novel of carny life—and death... College student Devin Jones took the summer job at Joyland hoping to forget the girl who broke his heart. But he wound up facing something far more terrible: the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and dark truths about life—and what comes after—that would change his world forever. A riveting story about love and loss, about growing up and growing old—and about those who don't get to do either because death comes for them before their time—JOYLAND is Stephen King at the peak of his storytelling powers. With all the emotional impact of King masterpieces such as The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption, JOYLAND is at once a mystery, a horror story, and a bittersweet coming-of-age novel, one that will leave even the most hard-boiled reader profoundly moved.

2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the publication of Stephen King’s first novel Carrie in April 1974. Rescued from the rubbish by his wife Tabitha, the novel launched the Maine schoolteacher on a prolific and extraordinarily successful career. His name has become synonymous with horror and suspense through over fifty works, including The Dark Tower, a retelling of Byron’s Childe Harold to the Dark Tower Came. Simpson traces the writer’s life from his difficult childhood – his father went out to the shops and never came back – through his initial books under the pseudonym Richard Bachman to the success of Carrie, Salem’s Lot and The Shining in the 1970s, and beyond. He examines how King’s writing was affected by the accident that nearly killed him in 1999 and how his battles with alcohol and addiction to medication have been reflected in his stories. The guide will also take a look at the very many adaptation’s of King’s work in movies, on television and radio, and in comic books.

Finster, mysteriös, elektrisierend Revival erzählt die Geschichte des Jungen Jamie und des Predigers Charles Jacobs, deren Wege sich von den Sechzigern bis heute auf unglückselige Weise immer wieder kreuzen. Sie steuert auf ein beängstigendes, auswegloses Ende zu, wie es selbst Stephen King bislang nicht zu Papier gebracht hat, und ist gleichzeitig Abrechnung mit dem Religionsfanatismus in unserem hoch technisierten Zeitalter und Verbeugung vor den Größen des klassischen Horrors. Der kleine Jamie spielt vor dem Haus mit seinen Plastiksoldaten, da schiebt sich ein dunkler Schatten über ihn, ein Schatten, den er sein Leben lang nicht loswerden wird. Er blickt auf und sieht Charles Jacobs über sich, den jungen Methodistenprediger, der in der neuenglischen Gemeinde gerade sein Amt antritt. Im Nu gewinnt der charismatische Jacobs die Herzen der gottesfürchtigen Einwohner. Den Kindern haben es vor allem die elektrischen Spielereien angetan, mit denen er Bibelgeschichten veranschaulicht. Das alles endet, als ihn ein entsetzlicher Unfall vom Glauben abfallen lässt und er eine letzte Predigt hält, die in einer rasenden Gottverfluchung gipfelt. Von der Gemeinde verstoßen, tingelt er fortan über die Jahrmärkte, wo er elektrische Experimente vorführt, die zunehmend spektakulärer werden. Und immer schrecklichere Folgen nach sich ziehen. Über die Jahre trifft Jamie, inzwischen drogenabhängiger Musiker, wiederholt auf Jacobs, der ihn jedes Mal tiefer in seine dämonische Welt zieht. Als Jamie sich dessen klar wird, gibt es kein Zurück mehr. Das finale Experiment steht bevor.

This statement was true when H. P. Lovecraft first wrote it at the beginning of the twentieth century, and it remains true at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The only thing that has changed is what is unknown. With each passing year, science, technology, and the march of time shine light into the craggy corners of the universe, making the fears of an earlier generation seem quaint. But this "light" creates its own shadows. The Best Horror of the Year, edited by Ellen Datlow, chronicles these shifting shadows. It is a catalog of terror, fear, and unpleasantness, as articulated by today's most challenging and exciting writers. The best horror writers of today do the same thing that horror writers of a hundred years ago did. They tell good stories—stories that scare us. And when these writers tell really good stories that really scare us, Ellen Datlow notices. She's been noticing for more than a quarter century. For twenty-one years, she coedited The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, and for the last six years, she's edited this series. In addition to this monumental cataloging of the best, she has edited hundreds of other horror anthologies and won numerous awards, including the Hugo, Bram Stoker, and World Fantasy awards. More than any other editor or critic, Ellen Datlow has charted the shadowy abyss of horror fiction. Join

The Poetics of Genre in the Contemporary Novel investigates the role of genre in the contemporary novel: taking its departure from the observation that numerous contemporary novelists make use of popular genre influences in what are still widely considered to be literary novels, it sketches the uses, the work, and the value of genre. It suggests the value of a critical look at texts’ genre use for an analysis of the contemporary moment. From this, it develops a broader perspective, suggesting the value of genre criticism and taking into view traditional genres such as the bildungsroman and the metafictional novel as well as the kinds of amalgamated forms which have recently come to prominence. In essays discussing a wide range of authors from Steven Hall to Bret Easton Ellis to Colson Whitehead, the contributors to the volume develop their own readings of genre’s work and valence in the contemporary novel.

Ein unheimliches Vergnügen – der neue große Roman von Stephen King Stephen Kings Bestseller Der Anschlag – seine Zeitreise in die Sechzigerjahre – wurde von der Kritik einhellig in höchsten Tönen gelobt. In Joyland nun nimmt der Autor den Leser auf einen Trip in die Siebzigerjahre mit. Auf verhängnisvolle Weise kreuzen sich in einem kleinen Vergnügungspark die Wege eines untergetauchten Mörders und eines Kindes. Und mitten im sich überschlagenden Geschehen steht ein junger, unschuldiger Student und weiß: Irgendwann ist es mit der Unschuld vorbei. Irgendwann hört jeder Spaß auf. Um sich sein Studium zu finanzieren, arbeitet Devin Jones während der Semesterferien im Vergnügungspark Joyland an der Küste von North Carolina. Drei Dinge sind es, die ihn im Laufe des Sommers 1973 vor allem beschäftigen: Seine große Liebe Wendy gibt ihm per Brief den Laufpass. In der Geisterbahn Horror House soll es spuken, nachdem dort ein Mädchen ermordet wurde.

Vom unbekümmerten Schaustellerleben in Joyland fasziniert, verlängert Devin seinen Aufenthalt. Mit seinen neugierigen Nachforschungen tritt er jedoch eine Lawine von Ereignissen los, bei denen es schließlich um Tod oder Leben geht ...

A formerly rich businessman thrown out of Hong Kong when the Chinese took over from the British decides to fix his dire financial problems and take revenge on the Chinese by tunneling under Hong Kong's bank vaults and stealing all their gold, then using a doomsday device to set off a "soliton wave" that will turn the ground to sludge, causing the whole city to collapse. Only the engineer on his staff who designed the soliton wave technology (intending it for good purposes, to help with construction projects) can stop him, working together with a beautiful young environmental activist who gets caught up in one of the soliton tests and nearly killed. From the deck of a yacht near the Great Barrier Reef to Australia and Singapore and finally Hong Kong itself, it's a deadly game of cat-and-mouse as our heroes first struggle to escape the villain's clutches and then thwart his insanely destructive plan.

This edition of The Year's Best Science Fiction collects twenty-five of the finest works of speculative fiction to see print in 1990, stories from the genre's every edge, and from its heart. Among the many marvels are tales from the field's most accomplished artists: Ursula K. Le Guin's "The Shobies' Story" returns to the Hainish worlds with a reality-defining story, while Joe Haldeman's "The Hemmingway Hoax" embarks from our world on a time-defying trip through other possibilities. Kate Wilhelm, Michael Moorcock, Robert Silverberg, and John Brunner demonstrate too with their stories why they remain among the most popular science fiction writers of all time. With the closing of a decade and cyberpunk virtually becoming reality, many of the leading writers of the eighties have begun to bring new insight and vision to their fiction: Bruce Sterling examines a classic clash of cultures in "We See Things Differently," and James Patrick Kelly's "Mr. Boy" presents a hard-edged story about the guts of growing up. Lewis Shiner's "White City" and Connie Willis's "Cibola" both seek peace--of sorts--amid spectacle, and works by Nancy Kress, Lucius Shepard and Robert Frazier, Pat Murphy, and John Kessel also dazzle and amaze. Among the many other stories in this volume are powerhouse piece by Terry Bisson, Molly Gloss, Ian McDonald, Charles Sheffield, Alexander Jablokov, and Dafydd ab Hugh, as well as towering new mindscapes from young talents such as Jonathan Lethem, Ian R. MacLeod, Greg Egan and Ted Chiang. A wonderful tour through possible, probable, and virtual realities, The Year's Best Science Fiction is an ideal assemblage of the year's short fiction. This volume is essential to anyone who reads sf.
