The classic short story collection from the #1 New York Times bestselling author.

"The mind gets up to funny tricks, doesn't it? Shadows grow faces."

A book salesman with a grievance picks up a mute hitchhiker, not knowing the silent man in the passenger seat listens altogether too well...An exercise routine on a stationary bicycle takes its rider on a captivating—and then terrifying—journey...A blind girl works a miracle with a kiss and the touch of her hand...A psychiatric patient's irrational thinking might create an apocalyptic threat in the Maine countryside or keep the world from falling victim to it.

Stories include:
-Willa
-The Gingerbread Girl
-Harvey's Dream
-Rest Stop
-Stationary Bike
-The Things They Left Behind
-Graduation Afternoon
-N.
-The Cat from Hell
-The New York Times at Special Bargain Rates
-Mute
-Ayana
-A Very Tight Place

These are just some of the tales to be found in the #1 bestselling collection Just After Sunset. Call it dusk or call it twilight, it's a time when human intercourse takes on an unnatural cast, when the imagination begins to reach for shadows as they dissipate to darkness and the living daylights can be scared right out of you. It's the perfect time for master storyteller Stephen King.

Stephen King

Stephen King was born in Portland, Maine in 1947, the second son of Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. He made his first professional short story sale in 1967 to Startling Mystery Stories. In the fall of 1973, he began teaching high school English classes at Hampden Academy, the public high school in Hampden, Maine. Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on novels. In the spring of 1973, Doubleday & Co., accepted the novel Carrie for publication, providing him the means to leave teaching and write full-time. He has since published over 50 books and has become one of the world's most successful writers.

Stephen lives in Maine and Florida with his wife, novelist Tabitha King. They are regular contributors to a number of charities including many libraries and have been honored locally for their philanthropic activities.
