Surrender to the worlds that Stephen King has created. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb talk about the horror author’s latest collection of novellas, featuring gems for longtime fans and new listeners alike. Stephen King was honored earlier this year with a lifetime achievement award from the Audio Publishers Association, and the care he takes with his audiobook narrations is apparent. Three narrators familiar to Stephen King fans return to narrate a coming-of-age tale, a story of a descent into darkness, and what our reviewer calls “King’s most imaginative work in years.”
