From legendary storyteller and master of short fiction Stephen King comes an extraordinary new collection of twelve thrilling stories, many never-before-published, and some of his best EVER.

Stephen King, renowned for his mastery of the macabre, offers readers a tantalising journey into the shadows with his latest collection, You Like it Darker. In this captivating anthology comprising twelve stories, King delves deep into the recesses of existence, exploring the darker facets of life, both literal and metaphorical, with unparalleled finesse.

With over five decades of literary prowess under his belt, King showcases his narrative virtuosity in tales that traverse themes of fate, mortality, luck, and the enigmatic realms where reality bends and twists unpredictably. Drawing readers into realms where anything is possible, these stories resonate with the weighty profundity of his novels while delivering an immersive and gratifying reading experience.

In the afterword, King candidly shares his passion for transcending the mundane and embracing the exhilaration of escaping ordinary life—a sentiment echoed throughout the pages of You Like it Darker. Through each story, readers are invited to share in this exhilaration time and again.

In Two Talented Bastids, the mysterious origins of two skilled individuals are unraveled, shedding light on the secret behind their remarkable abilities. Danny Coughlin's Bad Dream explores the repercussions of a fleeting psychic revelation, setting off a chain of events that irrevocably alter numerous lives, including Danny's own. Meanwhile, Rattlesnakes serves as a sequel to the classic Cujo, as a bereaved widower's quest for solace in Florida leads to an unforeseen inheritance fraught with perilous conditions.

In The Dreamers, a reticent Vietnam veteran embarks on a job opportunity only to discover the ominous consequences of meddling with forces beyond comprehension. The Answer Man probes the nature of foresight, pondering whether it is a boon or a curse, and offers a poignant reminder that even amidst profound tragedy, life can retain its significance. Throughout these narratives, King's unparalleled ability to shock, mesmerise, and evoke both terror and solace shines brightly.

Each story within this anthology unfolds with its own unique blend of suspense, delight, and intrigue, leaving an indelible mark on the reader's psyche. Through every twist and turn, You Like it Darker delivers an iconic literary experience that satisfies the craving for darker tales. If you're drawn to the shadows, this collection promises to satisfy your deepest desires.
