PLAZA & JANES – Libro Cuento de hadas Stephen King/ Fairy Tale Book


Estoy seguro de que puedo contar esta historia. También estoy seguro de que nadie se la creerá. Eso me da igual. Me basta con contarla. Para mí —y está claro que para muchos escritores, no solo los novatos como yo—, el problema es decidir por dónde empezar. (…)
Y ahora, mientras pienso en esas cosas, veo un claro hilo que conduce a lo largo de los años hasta el señor Bowditch y el cobertizo cerrado con candado detrás de su vieja y ruinosa casa victoriana.
Aunque un hilo puede romperse fácilmente. Por tanto, no un hilo, sino una cadena. Una cadena sólida. Y yo era el crío con el grillete en torno a la muñeca.


Legendary storyteller Stephen King goes into the deepest well of his imagination in this spellbinding novel about a 17-year-old boy who inherits the keys to a parallel world where good and evil are at war, and the stakes could not be higher – for their world or ours.
King’s storytelling in Fairy Tale soars. This is a magnificent and terrifying tale about another world than ours, in which good is pitted against overwhelming evil, and a heroic boy – and his dog – must lead the battle.
Early in the Pandemic, King asked himself: “What could you write that would make you happy?”
“As if my imagination had been waiting for the question to be asked, I saw a vast deserted city – deserted but alive. I saw the empty streets, the haunted buildings, a gargoyle head lying overturned in the street. I saw smashed statues (of what I didn’t know, but I eventually found out). I saw a huge, sprawling palace with glass towers so high their tips pierced the clouds. I saw a magic sundial that could turn back time. Those images released the story I wanted to tell.”
