On the Paperback

A wonderful new store has opened in the little town of Castle Rock, Maine.  Whatever your heart's secret desire--sexual pleasure, wealth, power or even more precious things--it's all for sale.  And even though every item has a nerve-shattering price, the owner is always ready to make a bargain.

In this chilling novel by one of the most potent imaginations of our time, evil is on a shopping spree and out to scare you witless...

On The Hardcover Flap

With a demonic blend of malice and affection, Stephen King says goodbye to the town he put on the map -- Castle Rock, Maine ... where Polly Chalmers runs You Sew and Sew and Sheriff Alan Pangborn is in charge of keeping the peace.  It's a small town, and Stephen King fans might think they know its secrets pretty well:  they've been here before.

Leland Gaunt is a stranger -- and he calls his shop Needful Things.   Eleven-year-old Brian Rusk is his first customer, and Brian finds just what he wants most in all the world:  a '56 Sandy Koufax baseball card.  By the end of the week, Mr. Gaunt's business is fairly booming, and why not?  At Needful Things, there's something for everyone.

And, of course, there is always a price.  For Leland Gaunt, the pleasure of doing business lies chiefly in seeing how much people will pay for their most secret dreams and desires.  And as Leland Gaunt always points out, at Needful Things, the prices are high indeed.  Does that stop people from buying?  Has it ever?

For Alan and Polly, this one week in autumn will be an awful test -- a test of will, desire, and pain.  Above all, it will be a test of their ability to grasp the true nature of their enemy.  They may have a chance. ... But maybe not, because, as Mr. Gaunt knows, almost everything is for sale:  love, hope even the human soul.

With the potent storytelling authority that millions of reader have come to prize, Stephen King delivers an Our Town with a vengeance, an animitable farewell to a place his fiction has often and long called home.
