From the publisher (Lividian Publications)
This product is not official or licensed by Simon & Schuster. This is an aftermarket slipcase produced by Lividian Publications, and it is a preorder that should ship in the spring of 2023. Fairy Tale by Stephen King was recently published as a new special edition hardcover by Simon & Schuster, and Lividian Publications is pleased to announce we’ll be producing an unofficial aftermarket custom slipcase to protect the book’s cloth binding and enhance its overall beauty.
Our slipcase will include one of our signature die cut windows to show off the book’s stunning cover artwork. The iridescent covering material has a soft-touch matte finish, and we’ll be using both hot foil stamping and a special silk screening technique on the front, the back, and the spine. (Design to be finalized and posted soon.)
About Fairy Tale
Legendary storyteller Stephen King goes into the deepest well of his imagination in this spellbinding novel about a seventeen-year-old boy who inherits the keys to a parallel world where good and evil are at war, and the stakes could not be higher—for that world or ours.
Charlie Reade looks like a regular high school kid, great at baseball and football, a decent student. But he carries a heavy load. His mom was killed in a hit-and-run accident when he was seven, and grief drove his dad to drink. Charlie learned how to take care of himself—and his dad. When Charlie is seventeen, he meets a dog named Radar and her aging master, Howard Bowditch, a recluse in a big house at the top of a big hill, with a locked shed in the backyard. Sometimes strange sounds emerge from it.
Charlie starts doing jobs for Mr. Bowditch and loses his heart to Radar. Then, when Bowditch dies, he leaves Charlie a cassette tape telling a story no one would believe. What Bowditch knows, and has kept secret all his long life, is that inside the shed is a portal to another world.
King’s storytelling in Fairy Tale soars. This is a magnificent and terrifying tale in which good is pitted against overwhelming evil, and a heroic boy—and his dog—must lead the battle.
Early in the Pandemic, King asked himself: “What could you write that would make you happy?”
“As if my imagination had been waiting for the question to be asked, I saw a vast deserted city—deserted but alive. I saw the empty streets, the haunted buildings, a gargoyle head lying overturned in the street. I saw smashed statues (of what I didn’t know, but I eventually found out). I saw a huge, sprawling palace with glass towers so high their tips pierced the clouds. Those images released the story I wanted to tell.”
