Master of the macabre, mystery and plain horror, Stephen King has been a best-selling author for over 30 years now. We love his dark ways and ability to play with the unexpected, and now with the recent addition of everything from Cujo to Desperation on site there is no better way to celebrate Stephen King Month than letting his eerie stories get inside your head.

Stephen King was born in Portland, Maine in 1947. 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. Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on novels. In the spring of 1973 his novel Carrie was published, 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.

While many of his myriad fans are more than a trifle weird, the writer himself seems to be almost studiedly normal. 'My wife, my kids, they see me one way,' King has said, 'but something happens when you write, something that's not a normal thing. Whoever I am, when I'm walking around, that's one person. But somebody else writes the books.'

It is a cave inhabited by rabid bats. And Cujo falls sick. Very sick.
