Stephen King has a new story collection coming out on April 21st! It is called If It Bleeds. The new story collection is four originals, 1 novel, and 3 novellas.
You can actually pre-order ‘If It Bleeds’ on Amazon right now! Let’s talk about this amazing cover!
The face of the rat in the cat face is so simple, yet so cool! It took me a minute to even realize what was happening here.
One of the novellas is called ‘Mr. Harrigan’s Phone’. Notice that Stephen King seems to have been focusing on technology in the last few books? ‘Cell’, or ‘UR’?
Well, this one is about burying someone with their favorite Apple product, eek!
Another one is called ‘Rat’, and the other novella is called ‘The Life of Chuck’.
The short novel in this collection is If It Bleeds and is about Holly Gibney, which is one of Stephen Kings favorite characters.
She suffers from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). She becomes obsessed with a vanishing mole on a TV news reporter’s face. Pretty weird right?
I have to be honest, there are a lot of Stephen King books I haven’t been able to finish. It’s always the long big novels that I fail to finish. His short stories and novellas I actually can get in to. For his actual novels, ‘Gerald’s Game’ and ‘Carrie’ were my favorites.
So, if you are a Stephen King fan you’ll want to watch this video of him reading the first chapter from ‘If It Bleeds’.
