NEW!!! Finders Keepers
A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes far too far—a book about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes King introduced in Mr. Mercedes.
“Wake up, genius.” So begins King’s instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn’t published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel.
Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime. Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he’s released from prison after thirty-five years.
Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous. Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life—for good, for bad, forever.
Stephen’s love of writing begun while still in school where he would contribute articles to Dave’s Rag, the newspaper his brother independently published. He would later start selling stories to his friends. His first independently published story was “I Was a Teenage Grave Robber”. Following a serious crash in 1999, Stephen almost stopped writing, but he continued online and eventually begun to publish his novels again.
Stephen King is one of the most unapologetically political authors. in 2008 he woke out against a bill in the Massachusetts state legislature that would ban or restrict the sale of violent video games to anyone under the age of 18. In 2011, Stephen spoke at a political rally condemning the Tea Party movement and in 2012 he published an article calling for higher taxes for rich Americans, including himself. In 2013, King published an essay titled “Guns” that discusses the gun debate in the USA, and in 2015 he criticised Donald Trump for his remarks about Mexican illegal immigrants, Tweeting: “How’s this for a Trump campaign slogan: IF YOU'RE WHITE, YOU'RE ALL RIGHT! ANY OTHER HUE, I DON'T TRUST YOU”. Stephen donates $4 million a year to libraries, local fire departments and schools. His foundation, The Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation, gives over $2.8 million in grants a year and in 2011 donated $70,000 to pay the heating bills for families in Maine.
The list of his best books includes: The Stand, Carrie, The Shining, 11/22/63, Salem’s Lot, Misery, The Dead Zone, and Pet Sematary.
