A Complete Guide to Stephen King Books

Facebook-Twitter-Guide-to-Stephen-King-Books-1024x535 A Complete Guide to Stephen King Books

Last updated on April 23, 2017, this is a complete guide to Stephen King books. Below, you will find each book title, the original publication date, a description of what the book is (whether it’s a novel, short story collection, non-fiction, or a work of another sort), the first edition cover image of the book, and relevant links to materials about the book for further study.

As this website develops, you will also find that this page is updated with links to other articles related to each of these books within this site. I want to develop this into as much of an all-encompassing resource as I reasonably can, and doing so starts with structure. This is a step in that direction. If you would like to be updated on the progress behind this website, please submit your email to us using the form at the top of your page.

With regard to the page counts, different sources reflect different page counts. I have not taken the trouble yet to pick up each individual first edition copy to see how many pages it was. I will eventually do that. Just be warned that, if it somehow matters to you to have an exact page count, these may be slightly off.

Let us begin.
