Hodder are boosting Stephen King's backlist with new covers and new author brand lettering to direct readers to the right King title for them.

It was not long after Halloween when Stephen King received a telephone call from his editor. 'Why don't you do a book about the entire horror phenomenon as you see it Books, movies, radio, TV, the whole thing '

The result is this unique combination of fantasy and autobiography, of classic horror writing honed to an unforgettable edge by the bestselling master of the genre.

Danse Macabre ranges across the whole spectrum of horror in popular culture from the seminal classes of Count Dracula and Frankenstein. It is a charming and fascinating book, replete with pertinent anecdote and observation, in which Stephen King describes his ideas on how horror works on many levels and how he brings it to bear on his own inimitable novels.

About the Author

Stephen King has been described as one of the most fertile storytellers of the modern novel. In 2003, he was given the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He lives with his wife, the novelist Tabitha King, for most of the year in Maine, USA.
