Gwendy’s Button Box – A Stephen King Collaboration

By March 1, 2017 New Releases

Gwendy’s Button Box – A Castle Rock Novella

Best selling author Stephen King has collaborated with fellow author and long time friend Richard Chizmar to bring us a brand new Castle Rock Novella that is due for release on May 30th and if it is anything like his collaborations with Peter Straub or his sons Joe and Owen then we constant readers (and hopefully those who have yet to immerse themselves in King’s literary universe) are in for a treat.

Castle Rock is well known to the Constant Reader; it is the home of many a strange being and the stopping point for many an unwelcome guest. Strange things happen in the town and bad things have a tendency to come back and it has been the setting for many of King’s tales but there is a story that hasn’t been told – until now.

Currently unavailable for pre-order

Due for release May 30th

Gwendy is twelve years old, and in the summer of 1974 she has spent everyday at Castle View a famous spot in Castle Rock that can be reached by one of three routes Pleasant Road, Route 117, or the Suicide Stairs which is the way Gwendy chooses to climb.

Once at the top Gwendy can hear the shouts of children playing and the clink of baseball bats from a senior league practice session and a voice…

“Hey, girl. Come on over here for a bit. We ought to palaver, you and me.”

The speaker is a man dressed in black jeans, a black coat like for a suit, and a white shirt unbuttoned at the top. On his head is a small neat black hat.

A hat that will give Gwendy nightmares.
