Read full description of the books Årstider:
Novellsamlingen Årstider skrevs 1982. Den består av fyra korta berättelser.
Vårbedrift är en originell fängelseskildring. Andy sitter oskyldigt dömd på livstid för ett dubbelmord och gör sig själv till fängelsets mönsterfånge. Han blir snart vän med kåkfararen Red, men ingen anar Andys avancerade planer på att skipa rättvisa. Vårbedrift ligger till grund för den hyllade storfilmen Nyckeln till frihet.
I Sommardåd möter läsaren Todd, en helt vanlig amerikansk kille. När han upptäcker att en nazist bor i området blir han besatt av förintelsens grymheter. Todd manar den före detta SS-officeren att dela sin berättelse, och tillsammans väcker de ondskan till liv igen.
Höstgärning är historien om tolvårige Gordie och hans tre kompisar Chris, Teddy och Vern. Lockade av spänningen i att se en död kropp ger de sig ut på vandring längs järnvägen för att söka efter pojken Ray, som varit försvunnen i tre dygn. Utflykten får farliga följder, och pojkarna tar ett stort kliv mot en väntande vuxenvärld. Höstgärning är förlaga till filmen Stand by me.
Vinterverk berättar om Sandra Stansfield: en ung blivande mor. Som en av de första i världen får hon lära sig andningsprofylax. För hennes läkare, doktor McCarron, blir det inte bara en möjlighet att pröva en ny metod – det blir också en skräckfylld lärdom om livsviljans ofattbara krafter.
Read information about the authorStephen Edwin King was born the second son of Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. After his father left them when Stephen was two, he and his older brother, David, were raised by his mother. Parts of his childhood were spent in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where his father's family was at the time, and in Stratford, Connecticut. When Stephen was eleven, his mother brought her children back to Durham, Maine, for good. Her parents, Guy and Nellie Pillsbury, had become incapacitated with old age, and Ruth King was persuaded by her sisters to take over the physical care of them. Other family members provided a small house in Durham and financial support. After Stephen's grandparents passed away, Mrs. King found work in the kitchens of Pineland, a nearby residential facility for the mentally challenged.
Stephen attended the grammar school in Durham and Lisbon Falls High School, graduating in 1966. From his sophomore year at the University of Maine at Orono, he wrote a weekly column for the school newspaper, THE MAINE CAMPUS. He was also active in student politics, serving as a member of the Student Senate. He came to support the anti-war movement on the Orono campus, arriving at his stance from a conservative view that the war in Vietnam was unconstitutional. He graduated in 1970, with a B.A. in English and qualified to teach on the high school level. A draft board examination immediately post-graduation found him 4-F on grounds of high blood pressure, limited vision, flat feet, and punctured eardrums.
He met Tabitha Spruce in the stacks of the Fogler Library at the University, where they both worked as students; they married in January of 1971. As Stephen was unable to find placement as a teacher immediately, the Kings lived on his earnings as a laborer at an industrial laundry, and her student loan and savings, with an occasional boost from a short story sale to men's magazines.
Stephen made his first professional short story sale ("The Glass Floor") to Startling Mystery Stories in 1967. Throughout the early years of his marriage, he continued to sell stories to men's magazines. Many were gathered into the Night Shift collection or appeared in other anthologies.
In the fall of 1971, Stephen began teaching English 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.
