Read full description of the books Desperation / The Regulators: Box Set:

Doppelband.

Desperation:
Das New Yorker Ehepaar Mary und Peter Jackson ist auf dem Highway 50 unterwegs, der verlassensten Fernstraße Amerikas, die durch eine trostlose und wüste Gegen führt. Eine Fahrt, die zu einem nicht enden wollenden Alptraum wird. Das Paar wird von einem mysteriösen Polizisten angehalten, der sie in das verlassene Bergarbeiterstädtchen Desperation verschleppt, wo bereits andere Personen festgehalten werden. Zwar gelingt es den Gefangenen, ihren psychopathischen Peiniger zu überlisten, aber nun beginnt das Horrorszenario erst richtig. Seltsame Dinge geschehen in Desperation, es wimmelt von Wölfen, Aasgeiern und Schlangen, die von einer unheimlichen Macht beseelt zu sein scheinen. Verzweiflung und Ratlosigkeit machen sich unter den Gefangenen breit, die sich von allen Seiten bedroht fühlen. Allein ein gottesgläubiger Junge erahnt die Ursache des Übels. Sie liegt in einer alten, einstmals verschütteten Mine, wo TAK haust, eine böse Wesenheit, die ihre Existenz aus der Lebensenergie von Menschen nährt...

Regulator:
Es ist ein ruhiger Sommernachmittag in der verschlafenen Kleinstadt Wentworth, Ohio, als über die scheinbare Idylle schlagartig das Grauen hereinbricht. Futuristisch anmutende Lieferwagen durchkreuzen die Stadt und richten ein schreckliches Blutband an. Panik macht sich unter den Bewohnern breit, allzumal die Serie unheimlicher und bedrohlicher Geschehnisse nicht abreißt. Die Überlebenden können sich die mysteriösen Vorgänge nicht erklären. Nur Audrey Wyler ahnt die Ursache des Grauen erregenden Spektakels: Ihr authistischer Neffe Seth hatte mit seinen Eltern ein Bergwerk in dem Minenstädtchen Desperation besucht und war dort in Kontakt mit einem Monster namens TAK gekommen...

Read information about the author

Ebook Desperation / The Regulators: Box Set read Online! Stephen Edwin King was born the second son of Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. After his father left them when Stephen was two, he and his older brother, David, were raised by his mother. Parts of his childhood were spent in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where his father's family was at the time, and in Stratford, Connecticut. When Stephen was eleven, his mother brought her children back to Durham, Maine, for good. Her parents, Guy and Nellie Pillsbury, had become incapacitated with old age, and Ruth King was persuaded by her sisters to take over the physical care of them. Other family members provided a small house in Durham and financial support. After Stephen's grandparents passed away, Mrs. King found work in the kitchens of Pineland, a nearby residential facility for the mentally challenged.

Stephen attended the grammar school in Durham and Lisbon Falls High School, graduating in 1966. From his sophomore year at the University of Maine at Orono, he wrote a weekly column for the school newspaper, THE MAINE CAMPUS. He was also active in student politics, serving as a member of the Student Senate. He came to support the anti-war movement on the Orono campus, arriving at his stance from a conservative view that the war in Vietnam was unconstitutional. He graduated in 1970, with a B.A. in English and qualified to teach on the high school level. A draft board examination immediately post-graduation found him 4-F on grounds of high blood pressure, limited vision, flat feet, and punctured eardrums.

He met Tabitha Spruce in the stacks of the Fogler Library at the University, where they both worked as students; they married in January of 1971. As Stephen was unable to find placement as a teacher immediately, the Kings lived on his earnings as a laborer at an industrial laundry, and her student loan and savings, with an occasional boost from a short story sale to men's magazines.

Stephen made his first professional short story sale ("The Glass Floor") to Startling Mystery Stories in 1967. Throughout the early years of his marriage, he continued to sell stories to men's magazines. Many were gathered into the Night Shift collection or appeared in other anthologies.

In the fall of 1971, Stephen began teaching English at Hampden Academy, the public high school in Hampden, Maine. Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on novels.
