With all of the craziness currently going on in the world, it seemed like we all needed some good news, and none other than Stephen King himself has stepped up to the plate.
Originally set to be released in early May, King’s new compendium hit the shelves on April 28th 2020.
If It Bleeds features four brand new novellas penned by King, which according to its publisher, Scribner, will “pull readers into intriguing and frightening places”. The four stories are titled Rat, Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, The Life Of Chuck and the titular If It Bleeds.
King is, of course, no stranger to the novella format, with multiple Hollywood blockbusters being created on the back of the author’s shorter stories, including Shawshank Redemption and Stand By Me.
