companion2015

In 1989, George Beahm’s Stephen King Companion appeared on the scene and became an instant hit with King fans. It was the go to bible of King information, packed with interviews, essays, inside information, rare photographs, and tantalizing trivia.

The Companion leaped onto the bestseller lists, was snapped up by the book clubs, and became known as an esential resource on King and his work.

The new, revised 320 page edition of The Stephen King Companion maintains the spirit of the original volume while updating it for this decade. It includes new material – articles, profiles, and interviews from such contributors as Clive Barker, leading King critic Michael R. Collings, and Stephen King Encyclopedia author Stephen J. Spignesi.

The first general interest book, resource guide, and reference work about the most popular novelist of our time.

From St. Martin’s Press, to be released on September 1, 2015, the third edition of The Stephen King Companion ($30). Profusely illustrated by Glenn Chadbourne and with numerous photographs, this will be George Beahm’s final word on all things Stephen King.
