All Charley Howard ever wanted was to be married, have three children and live a peaceful life in the suburbs. But the Fates had other ideas, and her happiness was not part of their plans.

In the six years after her husband's tragic death, successful businesswoman Charley has taken a small neighbourhood Bar and Grill and developed a major regional restaurant, now on the verge of a significant expansion forward. The only thing that stands in her way is PJ McCoy, a small college basketball coach.

Charley plans for her and PJ to share a lust filled weekend together, and find out whether the experience will fulfil her long sought need for renewed physical and emotional intimacy. But neither of them expected love to emerge from the weekend. And neither were they prepared to deal with the potential devastating effect that love would have on their hopes, fears, ambitions and careers. And do the Fates intervene once again and allow Charley to fulfil her deepest needs? Or is the road ahead littered with painful and ultimately insurmountable obstacles.

Stephen King
The instant #1 New York Times bestseller! Stephen King delivers an “outstanding” (USA TODAY) collection of stories, featuring revelatory autobiographical comments on when, why, and how he came to write (or rewrite) each story.

“I’ve made some things for you, Constant Reader...Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.”

Since Nightshift, published many years ago, Stephen King has dazzled an entire generation of readers with his genius as a prominent writer of short fiction. Now in his latest collection, he once again assembles a generous array of unforgettable, tantalizing tales—including those that, until recently, have never been published in a book (such as the story “Cookie Jar,” which is exclusive to this edition). There are thrilling connections between these works—themes of mortality, the afterlife, guilt, and what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the mistakes of the past. Magnificent, eerie, and utterly compelling, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams is one of Stephen King’s finest gifts to readers everywhere—a master storyteller at his very best.
