Reviews

"This is for the Cujo-level rabid fan." --Booklist "[Beahm] has done a wonderful job with the book, its text, its illustrations, its photos...well, all of the books contents are well worth reading. This is a book every King fan will want to read no matter if you are like me and need to know everything there is about him or if you just read his books and don't care about much more. You will still enjoy this book and it will give you a better insight into King and his writing." --Lilja's Library on The Stephen King Companion "There's so much to this sumptuous new book on King, and though it's over double the size of the previous Stephen King Companion, it's just as fun to read. King fans looking for a deeper glimpse into the books and the man who wrote them couldn't do better than Four Decades of Fear from the Master of Horror, now the definitive first stop on the journey into Stephen King criticism." --Cemetery Dance "The completeness of Beahm's analysis coupled accessible writing style make this book extremely absorbing. Owing to its tone and format, this title will appeal most to fans of King, who will find that its insights lend a new light to their favorite tales." --Library Journal (starred review) "Beahm's revelations are true to my heart as someone who has appreciated the scope of Stephen King more every year... [A] totally viable literary reference book that is up-to-date and inclusive." --Daily Press (Virginia) "Beahm does a remarkable job of presenting all aspects of King's life, including his family and their values . . . A sure winner with King fans or those curious about the man behind the legend."--School Library Journal "Just what the fans of the nation's most popular writer needed: a sprightly collection of artifacts, interviews, speeches, trivia, opinions, and pictures about their man and his books."--Booklist "To his credit, the Companion doesn't assume that everything King touches is perfect. This gives the whole effort credibility, which books of this type often don't have."--The Washington Post "The Stephen King Companion is the best guide to the entire trajectory of King's work . . . All in all, this is a treasure chest of information, plus photographs."--Sunday Record (Middletown, N.Y.) This is for the Cujo-level rabid fan.
