Publisher's Summary

The Stephen King Companion is an authoritative look at horror author King's personal life and professional career, from Carrie to The Bazaar of Bad Dreams.
King expert George Beahm, who has published extensively about Maine's main author, is your seasoned guide to the imaginative world of Stephen King, covering his varied and prodigious output: juvenalia, short fiction, limited edition books, best-selling novels, and film adaptations.
Supplemented with interviews with friends, colleagues, and mentors who knew King well, this book looks at his formative years in Durham, when he began writing fiction as a young teen; his college years in the turbulent '60s; his struggles with early poverty; working full time as an English teacher while writing part time; the long road to the publication of his first novel, Carrie; and the dozens of best-selling books and major screen adaptations that followed.
For fans old and new, The Stephen King Companion is a comprehensive look at America's best-loved bogeyman.
