Good news for Stephen King fans! The “Master of Horror” and novelist Stewart O’Nan have teamed up to write A Face in the Crowd, a chilling new e-book set for release August 21. It will be the duo’s second baseball-themed collaboration.
Here’s the plot summary from StephenKing.com:
“Dean Evers, an elderly widower, sits in front of the television with nothing better to do than waste his leftover evenings watching baseball. It’s Rays/Mariners, and David Price is breezing through the line-up. Suddenly, in a seat a few rows up beyond the batter, Evers sees the face of someone from decades past, someone who shouldn’t be at the ballgame, shouldn’t be on the planet. And so begins a parade of people from Evers’s past, all of them occupying that seat behind home plate. Until one day Dean Evers sees someone even eerier...”
A Face in the Crowd will be available at all the usual e-book spots – Kindle, Nook, eReader, iBookstore, Android Play, etc. Fans can also get an audio book from Amazon or iTunes.
King and O’Nan released Faithful in 2004, a book chronicling their exchanges on Red Sox baseball. O’Nan’s recent works include Emily, Alone and The Odds. Always a prolific writer, King has been especially busy the last few months, releasing The Wind Through the Keyhole, The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger – The Man in Black #2, and 11/22/63.
