ABOUT THE BOOK: Stephen King’s second collection features 22 works, comprising nineteen short stories, a novella (The Mist), and two poems (‘Paranoid: A Chant’ and ‘For Owen,’ the poem he wrote for his son). In addition to the introduction, in which the author directly addresses his readers in his now familiar conversational style, Skeleton Crew features an epilogue of sorts entitled ‘Notes’ wherein King discusses the origins of several stories in the collection.

Although published in 1985, the stories collected in Skeleton Crew span seventeen years from ‘The Reaper's Image’ (King's second professional sale when he was just eighteen years old) to ‘The Ballad of The Flexible Bullet’, which was completed in 1983

Of one of the stories in the collection, King says: “As far as short stories are concerned, I like the grisly ones the best. However the story ‘Survivor Type’ goes a little bit too far, even for me."

The acclaimed artist Pete Von Sholly (who produced the storyboards for Frank Darabont’s movie adaptation of The Mist) has provided a piece of artwork for each story plus covers, slipcases and endpapers. Pete has also delivered 26 pieces of original artwork which will be given away—signed by the artist—with copies of the deluxe lettered edition of this bumper thirtieth anniversary event, which includes an Introduction from the multiple award-winning Horror maestro, Stephen Jones.

This anniversary editon also
includes the additional story ‘The Revelations of 'Becka Paulson’.
