From legendary storyteller and master of short fiction Stephen Kingcomes an extraordinary new collection of twelve thrilling stories, manynever-before-published, and some of his best EVER.

‘You like it darker? Fine, so do I’, writes Stephen King in the afterwordto this magnificent new collection of twelve stories that delve into the darkerpart of life – both metaphorical and literal. King has, for half a century,been a master of the form, and these stories, about fate, mortality, luck, andthe folds in reality where anything can happen, are as rich and riveting as hisnovels, both weighty in theme and a huge pleasure to read. King writes to feel‘the exhilaration of leaving ordinary day-to-day life behind’, and in YouLike it Darker, readers will feel that exhilaration too, again and again.

‘Two Talented Bastids’ explores the long-hidden secret of how theeponymous gentlemen got their skills. In ‘Danny Coughlin's Bad Dream’, abrief and unprecedented psychic flash upends dozens of lives, Danny's mostcatastrophically. In ‘Rattlesnakes’, a sequel to Cujo, a grieving widowertravels to Florida for respite and instead receives an unexpectedinheritance – with major strings attached. In ‘The Dreamers’, a taciturnVietnam vet answers a job ad and learns that there are some corners of theuniverse best left unexplored. ‘The Answer Man’ asks if prescience is goodluck or bad and reminds us that a life marked by unbearable tragedy can still bemeaningful.

King's ability to surprise, amaze, and bring us both terror and solaceremains unsurpassed. Each of these stories holds its own thrills, joys, andmysteries; each feels iconic. You like it darker? You got it.
