If you have a question you would like Stephen King to answer during the chat, please send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
For the next 5 days (Monday Nov. 28 – December 3rd) I will post a link here at the top of the site. The link will be named Contest Monday (the name of the day will change for each day) and when you see this link, all you need to do is click on it and send me that email that opens. You can add a comment if you like but that is not a must. Sounds too easy? Well, it is. There are two more things:
1) The link may appear any time between midnight and midnight the day after and will only be on the site for a short time, somewhere between 2 and 4 hours.
2) You will have to be the 10th person that sends me an email that day. I will count them in the order I receive them. The 10th mailer each day will be the winner.
Sounds like fun? Well, I hope so. And keep an eye here; the first link will appear within 24 hours and remember that you can keep an eye on the site with you phone as well…
Contest Monday (contest for Monday is over. Winner is Will Efson).

Excerpt for A Good Mariage
"Full Dark, No Stars has sixteen pieces: 12 B&W printed in the book and 4 color glossy pieces that are hand-tipped."
Thanks to Ari
Cemetery Dance Publications is very pleased to announce our Deluxe Special Edition of Stephen King's chilling new collection of novellas. The tales in Full Dark, No Stars are bleak, featuring some of the darkest moments of any King work in recent memory, and we've brought together a team of five acclaimed artists to create nearly twenty exclusive illustrations including B&W pieces and glossy color tip-ins.
This fine collectible volume will be available in three editions printed in two colors on a high-quality paper, and the oversized Collector's Gift Edition will be issued with the smallest print run of any Stephen King Gift Edition since we published From a Buick 8 in 2002. As many collectors know, that was one of the rare Gift Editions to sell out before publication and to go up in value significantly over the years.
Secretly rolling at the printer since September and on schedule to ship at the end of the year, the Cemetery Dance Deluxe Special Edition of Full Dark, No Stars will be the perfect addition to any Stephen King collection. We don't expect any of our editions to last very long given the low print runs, so don't wait to place your order or you might miss out!

Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King. A quartet of original, never-before-published stories, with King narrating an introduction to each tale. (Simon & Schuster Audio, Nov.)

Thanks to Jason.
1922: 96 manuscript pages
A Good Marriage: 63 manuscript pages
Big Driver: 82 manuscript pages
Fair Extension: 25 manuscript pages
And there will be an Afterword in the book.
'I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger...' writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up '1922', the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerising tales from Stephen King, linked by the theme of retribution. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife Arlette proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.
In 'Big Driver', a cozy-mystery writer named Tess encounters the stranger is along a back road in Massachusetts when she takes a shortcut home after a book-club engagement. Violated and left for dead, Tess plots a revenge that will bring her face to face with another stranger: the one inside herself.
'Fair Extension', the shortest of these tales, is perhaps the nastiest and certainly the funniest. Making a deal with the devil not only saves Harry Streeter from a fatal cancer but provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment.
When her husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable and she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends 'A Good Marriage'.
Like DIFFERENT SEASONS and FOUR PAST MIDNIGHT, which generated such enduring hit films as The Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me, FULL DARK, NO STARS proves Stephen King a master of the long story form.
Thanks to Bev Vincent.
The story opens with the confession of Wilfred James to the murder of his wife, Arlette, following their move to Hemingford, Nebraska onto land willed to Arlette by her father.
Mystery writer, Tess, has been supplementing her writing income for years by doing speaking engagements with no problems. But following a last-minute invitation to a book club 60 miles away, she takes a shortcut home with dire consequences.
Harry Streeter, who is suffering from cancer, decides to make a deal with the devil but, as always, there is a price to pay.
A Good Marriage
Darcy Anderson learns more about her husband of over twenty years than she would have liked to know when she stumbles literally upon a box under a worktable in their garage.
STEPHEN KING HAS MAJOR DARKNESS IN MIND FOR 2010 UNDER THE DOME, published in November 2009, reached more readers then any other King hardback novel published in the UK in the last decade.
Its publication, with a winning marketing campaign, demands a worthy successor for 2010, and Hodder & Stoughton are delighted to announce the acquisition from US agent, Chuck Verrill, of FULL DARK, NO STARS.
The November publication month that has proved so successful for UNDER THE DOME and JUST AFTER SUNSET will again provide a perfect position to launch this volume of four all-new novellas for Christmas 2010.
These darkly thrilling stories are all linked by the theme of retribution, and are a showcase for the power of King’s inimitable imagination – satisfying established readers whilst enticing new ones. Visceral, immediate and featuring just a few characters, this is the other side of King’s writing; contrasting intimate portraits after the huge canvas that was UNDER THE DOME.
For further information about FULL DARK, NO STARS please contact Kerry Hood on 020 7873 6l73. And for more information about Stephen King visit www.hodder.co.uk and www.stephenking.co.uk
Steve has told me it's okay to say that one of the novellas is about Hemingford Home.
I have been given permission to announce that Steve's next book titled FULL DARK, NO STARS, is a collection of 4 previously unpublished novellas and is expected to be released in November (possibly 9th, but that is subject to change). We will announce more details as they become available.
