The Man with the Devil's Tongue: The End of the World and Some Other Things #0.1

April Frausini can see ghosts. When she was younger, her parents had treated her like a child with a broken brain. They took April to doctors. The doctors sent her to specialists. The specialists put her on drugs. And when the drugs failed to stop the visions, the specialists zapped her brain.

After that, April told them that the ghosts had gone.

She lied.

Now she’s in college and trying to forge a future for herself, but a chance encounter with a dark spirit in a bar puts a bit of a hold on things.

A man named Jameson Talbot reaches out to her, explaining that there are worse things than ghosts to be afraid of. The spirit she saw the other night was no mere ghost, but the Devil himself in spectral form. If she chooses, Talbot promises to teach her to control her gift of sight, so that they may help others who have been tormented by these spirits, and potentially put a stop to whatever the Devil has planned.

April must choose. Go back to a life where nobody understands her or her visions? Or follow Talbot, find a purpose, and walk down a dangerous path in search of the Devil himself?

The end of the world begins with sudden volcanic eruptions along the Ring of Fire, killing thousands and displacing millions. These tragedies serve only as the precursor to the epic eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano, which annihilates all life for hundreds of miles around. Ash spreads across the United States, choking the population, smothering the crops, and grinding the country to a halt.


Then the beasts begin to emerge from the new fissures in the earth.

An armored bipedal burrower crawls out of Mt. Fuji and reduces Tokyo to dust and rubble. Eel-like sea monsters terrorize ships in the busy Pacific shipping lanes. Swarms of insectoid creatures lay their eggs in a flooded California and quickly overrun the entire state. And somewhere in the dark, ashen landscape walks a predatory behemoth with a hunger that only other giants can hope to satisfy.

Weakened by both the volcanic activity and the monsters, humanity turns to the nuclear solution as a means of fighting back. Cities are destroyed beneath mushroom clouds all around the world in an attempt to kill the monsters. But this mass destruction is in vain. Mankind's final war lasts only weeks.

Governments are disbanded. Entire countries are decimated. Our once great cities are deemed potential danger zones. But there are survivors. . .

Word is spoken of a great city capable of holding off any monster’s attacks. Pilgrims from around the world make their way over the burnt landscape, walking in the shadows of great monsters, hopeful to find this safe haven in the west… They call it New Detroit.


The Complete Omnibus tells the epic story of In the Shadow of Extinction in one big book. Readers who buy Parts 1, 2, and 3 already have the full story and will find no new content in the Omnibus edition.

#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.”
