A box set of Stephen King's early works, including three #1 bestsellers: Carrie, 'Salem's Lot, and The Shining.
In Carrie, a teenage girl is tormented and teased to the breaking point by her more popular schoolmates. But Carrie has a gift and she uses this gift to inflict a terrifying revenge.
In 'Salem's Lot, Ben Mears has returned to Jerusalem's Lot, an old mansion, long the subject of town lore, to work on his new book. But when two young boys venture into the woods and only one comes out alive, Mears begins to realize that there is something evil growing within the borders of this small New England town.
In The Shining, Jack Torrance's new job as the off-season caretaker at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote . . . and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.
This beautifully designed slipcase will make the perfect holiday and perennial gift.
