Information about the author.
This companion provides a two-part introduction to best-selling author Stephen King, whose enormous popularity over the years has gained him an audience well beyond readers of horror fiction, the genre with which is most often associated. Part I considers the reception of King’s work, the film adaptations that they gave rise to, the fictional worlds in which some of his novels are set, and the more useful approaches to King’s varied corpus. Part II consists of entries for each series, novel, story, screenplay and even poem, including works never published or produced, as well as characters and settings.
Stephen King: The Non-Fiction is the first significant review of King’s Non-Fiction. Most fans and readers know King has written three non-fiction books and may have noticed his introductions and Author’s Notes to his own works; but few know of his hundreds of columns, articles, book reviews and criticism.
The Authors review all King’s published and known unpublished works from 1959 to mid-2006; over 560 published works of non-fiction (more than a dozen are revealed here for the first time) and a further nine unpublished non-fiction pieces.
