  • DARK FICTION

    “Instantly powerful . . . studded with alarming signs of the times.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

    The King is back, after a brief hiatus—darker, gorier, and funnier than ever. The world is overrun by “phonies” whose brains have been wiped out and replaced by a cell phone pulse. The “normies,” such as our hero, illustrator Clayton Riddell, must navigate the postapocalyptic world (notably the lost city once known as Boston) with only their wits and a hefty dose of symbolism.

    CELL: A NOVEL, by Stephen King (Scribner, 2006)

  • Rudi read this and sent me her copy ages ago, but I still haven't read it. I misplaced it, and now that you mention it am going to have to find it and bump it up my list.

  • This wasn't one of his best, but it was pretty good.
