Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The Stephen King Companion is just the sort of reference work you need. Beahm has put together a well-researched and thoroughly entertaining guide". — Library Journal

Since 1989, George Beahm has chronicled the comings goings of the King of horror fiction in two editions each of The Stephen King Companion and The Stephen King Story, and the King fanzine, Phantasmagoria.

About Stephen King: America's Best-Loved Boogeyman, Beahm explained, "I didn't want to merely update and revise The Stephen King Story. Instead, I started from scratch and wrote a brand-new book, just as I did when I published the second edition of The Stephen King Companion, which has 80 percent new material".

From Carrie to Wizard and Glass (the fourth Dark Tower novel), Beahm thoroughly examines King's life as a celebrity and a publishing phenomenon who has published more than forty books to date. Complete with new photos taken especially for this edition and reprints of little-seen King photos unearthed from archives throughout the United States, this book is a textual and visual treat and a "must buy" for King's millions of readers.
