Buick 8

21

Depois da morte do policial Curtis Wilcox, Ned, seu filho de 18 anos, começa a visitar a delegacia onde o pai trabalhava. O sargento Sandy Dearborn, melhor amigo de Curtis no esquadrão, percebe a curiosidade do rapaz e decide compartilhar com ele uma estranha história, mantida em segredo há anos pela polícia da Pensilvânia. Antes de Ned nascer, o policial Ennis Rafferty e Wilcox atendem a uma chamada de um posto de gasolina e voltam para a delegacia com um Buick abandonado. O pai de Ned conhecia carros antigos e, desde o início, notou que havia algo de muito errado com aquele. Poucas horas depois, Ennis desaparece sem deixar rastros. As investigações sobre o Buick, lideradas por Curtis, revelam detalhes cada vez mais estranhos: ele se recuperava sozinho de qualquer avaria, era invulnerável à sujeira e a arranhões de toda espécie e seu motor não funcionava. No entanto, os policiais não conseguem decifrar o mistério. Agora, mais de 20 anos depois, Ned descobre o Buick e, intrigado com o possível envolvimento do carro na morte de seu pai, começa a investigar o mistério desafiador, sobrenatural e mortífero.

#1 New York Times bestselling author and master of horror Stephen King teams up with Bev Vincent of Cemetery Dance to present a terrifying collection of sixteen short stories (and one poem) that tap into one of King’s greatest fears—air travel—featuring brand-new stories by King and Joe Hill, “an expertly compiled collection of tales that entertain and scare” (Booklist).

Stephen King hates to fly, and he and co-editor Bev Vincent would like to share their fear of flying with you.

Welcome to Flight or Fright, an anthology about all the things that can go horribly wrong when you’re suspended six miles in the air, hurtling through space at more than 500 mph, and sealed up in a metal tube (like—gulp!—a coffin) with hundreds of strangers. Here are all the ways your trip into the friendly skies can turn into a nightmare, including some we’ll bet you’ve never thought of before... but now you will the next time you walk down the jetway and place your fate in the hands of a total stranger.

Featuring brand-new “standouts” (Publishers Weekly) by Joe Hill and Stephen King, as well as fourteen classic tales and one poem from the likes of Richard Matheson, Ray Bradbury, Roald Dahl, Dan Simmons, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and many others, Flight or Fright is, as King says, “ideal airplane reading, especially on stormy descents…Even if you are safe on the ground, you might want to buckle up nice and tight.”

Each story is introduced by Stephen King and all will have you thinking twice about how you want to reach your final destination.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It—publishing just as the second part of It, the movie, lands in theaters.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
