The master of terror, Stephen King, found a box full of stories and manuscripts that belonged to his father. Since then, no one found out what was inside that box or if all of this influenced Kings work. This is an homage to Stephen King and his stories. In the story, “The stories’ box”, Steve tells about a box and as he grows up, he has recurrent dreams and predictions of stories that would become a successful book. In the story “The gravedigger”, an old gravedigger about to retire, after 40 years of burying people in Boad Hill, never wondered when his time to die would come or who would bury him. Because it does no good to think about death. In the story “The A girl”, a married man has several affaires with different women, until one day the A girl presents herself. A gorgeous beauty of long legs and big green eyes. But after going to a hotel, he finds out the truth. In the story “Rotten apples”, Tom loved his fruit trees, especially his apple trees when they were a color festival in the spring. He loved apples and he would eat two every day. Until one day, he feels very tired and he sees roots growing instead of fingernails. His joints start to become rigid. In the story “In the maggot’s mouth”, a shylock from the eighteenth century counts his money every night... And many, many more.

The human brain is the most complex object-organ that exists. It is able to develop several personalities at the same time, create body mutations, or decide when it will die. No psychiatrist has managed to control the array of personality disorders that exist currently and that they claim to know. And what about those unknown? Faith and madness are just two things that can exist inside the brain and manifest in an obsessive way. This is Tom's story, an eighteen year old man with a slight mental retardation and an array of mental and identity disorders about to explode in the most horrible way we could ever imagine.

The body dies but the souls live on the places where there is death. And they drive you crazy. The familiy consists of Pedro, Antonia, Juan and Pili, and they are about to become the new tenants of the House of Bonmati. Mr. Valenti and his sister Angels, the last living owners, have proposed their new tenants a good deal: If they take care of the house and the land surrounding it, and they keep it clean and tidy, they will be allowed to live there, rent-free. The house of Bonmati is a 100-year-old house, and Mr. Valenti will share its history with them gradually, like throwing petals in the wind. But he doesn't tell them the whole truth. Pili realizes there are strange faces and silhouettes all around the house, but she is the only one who can see them, and nobody believes her when she tries to tell them. Although the couple’s marriage is on the rocks, Pili is the apple of Pedro's eye, and Juan is Antonia's perfect son. But things change soon. There are ghosts everywhere, Juan can see them now, and the eerie sounds are continuously heard at all times and locations. When he enters room six, Juan is stunned by the odd woman who asks him to kiss her so as to keep safe. Eventually, the strange voices start whispering in his father's head and he starts behaving bizarrely, with a crazy look in his eyes. Then the storm breaks out, leading them to a tragic ending.

'A resonant novella set in one of King's signature locales: the small town of Castle Rock, Maine' Washington Post The small town of CASTLE ROCK, MAINE has witnessed some strange events and unusual visitors over the years, but there is one story that has never been told...until now. There are three ways up to Castle View from the town of Castle Rock: Route 117, Pleasant Road, and the Suicide Stairs. Every day in the summer of 1974 twelve-year-old Gwendy Peterson has taken the stairs, which are held by strong (if time-rusted) iron bolts and zig-zag up the cliffside. At the top of the stairs, Gwendy catches her breath and listens to the shouts of the kids on the playground. From a bit farther away comes the chink of an aluminum bat hitting a baseball as the Senior League kids practice for the Labor Day charity game. One day, a stranger calls to Gwendy: 'Hey, girl. Come on over here for a bit. We ought to palaver, you and me.' On a bench in the shade sits a man in black jeans, a black suit coat, and a white shirt unbuttoned at the top. On his head is a small neat black hat. The time will come when Gwendy has nightmares about that hat... Journey back to Castle Rock in this chilling new novella by Stephen King, bestselling author of The Bazaar of Bad Dreams, and Richard Chizmar, award-winning author of A Long December.
