About the author

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Arvin Loudermilk hand wrote his first novel—a high school superhero fantasy based embarrassingly, and almost entirely, on himself—at the age of seventeen. A ‘sequel’ followed, but his focus soon turned to the intricacies of comic book writing. 

In May of 1989, Arvin met Mike Iverson, a skilled illustrator and designer, and together they created the comic book series Vigil, a crime fiction epic featuring a gun wielding vampire vigilante. Hot on the heels of a thousand pages of Vigil, they produced a sci-fi comic called Collective. 

In the years that followed, Arvin became more and more convinced that Collective and Vigil would be natural fits in the world of prose. The development process to shift to this new creative platform was long and frustrating, but the end result, an assortment of novels and novellas, began its long-term publishing schedule with the 2012 release of In a Flash.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The latest from legendary master storyteller Stephen King, a riveting, extraordinarily eerie, and moving story about a man whose mysterious affliction brings a small town together—a timely, upbeat tale about finding common ground despite deep-rooted differences.

Although Scott Carey doesn’t look any different, he’s been steadily losing weight. There are a couple of other odd things, too. He weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. Scott doesn’t want to be poked and prodded. He mostly just wants someone else to know, and he trusts Doctor Bob Ellis.

In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King’s most iconic stories, Scott is engaged in a low grade—but escalating—battle with the lesbians next door whose dog regularly drops his business on Scott’s lawn. One of the women is friendly; the other, cold as ice. Both are trying to launch a new restaurant, but the people of Castle Rock want no part of a gay married couple, and the place is in trouble. When Scott finally understands the prejudices they face–including his own—he tries to help. Unlikely alliances, the annual foot race, and the mystery of Scott’s affliction bring out the best in people who have indulged the worst in themselves and others.

From Stephen King, our “most precious renewable resource, like Shakespeare in the malleability of his work” (The Guardian), Elevation is an antidote to our divisive culture, as gloriously joyful (with a twinge of deep sadness) as “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
