Mercedesmanden - Stephen King

Mercedesmanden - Stephen King

En kold, mørk forårsmorgen et sted i Midtvesten står flere hundrede desperate arbejdsløse i kø og venter på at en jobbørs skal åbne. Pludselig dukker en stor Mercedes SL 500 ud af tågen, pløjer sig for fuld fart ind i menneskemængden og forsvinder igen. Et år senere er den pensionerede politimand Bill Hodges ved at forsumpe i dårlig dybfrostmad og endnu værre tv. Massakren på de arbejdsløse er en af de uopklarede sager han stadig ikke kan glemme, og til sin forbløffelse og rædsel modtager han en dag et hånende brev fra Mercedesmorderen selv. Hvad Hodges nemlig ikke ved, er at brevets forfatter på ingen måde er færdig med at hade og hævne sig på verden. Kælderen under det anonyme hus hvor den unge Brady Hartsley stadig bor sammen med sin fordrukne og nærgående mor, er lige så spækket med plastisk sprængstof som Bradys tanker konstant er det af forestillinger om at udløse nye katastrofer og menneskelige tragedier. Det er det bare kun ham selv der er klar over. Stille og tilsyneladende helt almindelig går han rundt blandt folk og passer smilende sine anonyme jobs, alt imens han planlægger en terrorhandling uden sidestykke – som kun den næsten udbrændte Hodges og et par meget utraditionelle hjælpere måske vil være i stand til at forudse og forhindre.

NOW A HIT NETFLIX SERIES "Hypnotic and scary." --Stephen King "I am RIVETED, AGHAST, AROUSED, you name it. The rare instance when prose and plot are equally delicious." --Lena Dunham From debut author Caroline Kepnes comes You , one of Suspense Magazine 's Best Books of the Year, and a brilliant and terrifying novel for the social media age. When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card. There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she'll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight--the perfect place for a "chance" meeting. As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck's life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck's perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way--even if it means murder. A terrifying exploration of how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation, debut author Caroline Kepnes delivers a razor-sharp novel for our hyper-connected digital age. You is a compulsively readable page-turner that's being compared to Gone Girl , American Psycho , and Stephen King's Misery .

Everyone's A Critic

Everyone's A Critic

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mrs. Everything and In Her Shoes masterfully combines Stephen King with Donna Tartt, plus a twist of Shirley Jackson, in this timely tale that spikes horror with humor and asks whose stories matterand who gets to decide. Laurel Spellman is the most respected and feared literary critic in America. For yearsmore than she wants to admitshe's written acid-etched reviews, gleefully goring sacred cows, anointing Great American Novelists, keeping the mob of scribbling authors in their place while enjoying all the perks of her position. She doesn't want to lose her spot on top of the literary worldnot any more than she wants to replace her decades-old cartoon head shot with a new photograph. But when Laurel ends up taking a group of bibliophiles on a tour of literary Paris, she meets her worst nightmare: an eager debut author of commercial fiction named Tess Kravitz. Laurel despises books like Tess's: easy reads with happy endings, where the fat girl finds true love, or happiness through yoga. She can't stand Tess herself, a chirpy, chunky blond with a tote bag full of a seemingly inexhaustible supply of her book, The Comfort Diet. But Tess is undeterred by Laurel's scorn. She makes it clear that she'll do anythingabsolutely anythingto get her book on Laurel's radar. As author and critic play cat and mouse in Paris, ominous tokens appear, dark secrets are revealed, and Laurel finds herself haunted by her history and tormented by Tess's book. The line between reality and fantasy begins to blur in a clash between an aging critic who will do anything to hold on to what she has, and a desperate author, who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Flash Fiction Online June 2016

Flash Fiction Online June 2016

I've read Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine for the umpteenth time. I've walked the ravine with Douglas Spaulding, fumed over never-mown grass with Grandpa, ridden the time machine with Colonel Freeleigh, rescued Mme. Tarot from the junk heap. Bradbury passed away four years ago this week. If you've never read Ray Bradbury before I'm afraid I must chastise you. Mr. Bradbury is an American icon. A must-read for anyone who appreciates fine literature or who loves a well-told story. Most see Bradbury as a science fiction author. He was that, but so much more. Bradbury wrote. That's all. True, many of his stories could be easily categorized as science fiction. Just as many, however, could be labeled as fantasy or even mainstream. But what makes Bradbury stand out from his peers is the way he put words on a page. He was an artist with words, a master of phrasing, a storyteller with a flair for manipulating the English language to form literary treasures. "We are cups," Bradbury once said, "constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out." Beautiful stuff. That's what we like to put on our pages. This month we have some exceptionally beautiful stuff--all speculative fiction of one sort or another. First, a foray into future dystopia from Flash Fiction Online alumnus Derrick Boden, "A Winner's Smile." Next, a heartbreaking urban fantasy piece, "A Partial Inventory of Things I Have Loved," by Michelle Ann King. From author Stephen S. Power, we're pleased to present "Mamita," a near-future science fiction story. Lastly, a reprint from our own staffer, Jason S. Ridler--"Charlatans and Magi," plus another edition of FXXK WRITING
