A collection of essays on Stephen King and his works up to The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger. I believe this was the first book of its kind dedicated to King.

Overall, I would say this is an good read if you wish to learn more about King's earlier works and gain some insight on the writer.

The particular edition I have is

Stephen King criticism of some of his early works. Entertaining compare-and-contrast between his books and his movies.
