NEWS - LATER
I want to put together a page with photos of you all and your copy of Later. All you need to do is send me a photo (this should open an email but if it doesn’t, send the photo to info[a]liljas-library.com) of yourself and the book (any edition works) and I’ll post them here. If you don’t want to send it by email you can also post it on the facebook page and I’ll grab it there. I would also like to ask you to include your name, town and country so that I can list that with the photo. You can see what it will look like at the Mr Mercedes page, the Revival page, the Finders Keepers page, Bazzar of Bad Dreams page, End of Watch page, Charlie the Choo Choo page, Gwendy’s Button Box page, Sleeping Beauties Book page, Outsider Book page or the If it Bleeds Book page.
Check out all Later photos here.
Let's get those photos collected! Some of you are even on all pages, GOOD WORK!
King talks movies and Later with Drew Barrymore.
Later is a nice little book with quite few characters for a King book but as usual they are what carries the story forward. And the story is an interesting one. It might sound like something you have read or seen before but not quite with this twist that King has put upon it.
The set will also include three exclusive art cards showing a variant cover of each book – the original Glen Orbik cover for The Colorado Kid, the Robert McGinnis limited-edition hardcover cover for Joyland and the Greg Manchess limited-edition hardcover cover for Later.
The set will be released on September 14 but you can pre-order your set over at Amazon.com
Here is King's tweet about it.
Thanks to Ami Sandler

“I love the Hard Case format, and this story — combining a boy who sees beyond our world and strong elements of crime and suspense — seemed a perfect fit,”
- Stephen King
“Later is a beautiful story about growing up and facing your demons — whether they’re metaphorical or (as sometimes happens when you’re in a Stephen King novel) the real thing. It’s terrifying, tender, heartbreaking and honest, and we’re so excited to bring it to readers.”
- Charles Ardai, the editor of Hard Case Crime.

SOMETIMES GROWING UP
MEANS FACING YOUR DEMONS
The son of a struggling single mother, Jamie Conklin just wants an ordinary childhood. But Jamie is no ordinary child. Born with an unnatural ability his mom urges him to keep secret, Jamie can see what no one else can see and learn what no one else can learn. But the cost of using this ability is higher than Jamie can imagine - as he discovers when an NYPD detective draws him into the pursuit of a killer who has threatened to strike from beyond the grave.
LATER is Stephen King at his finest, a terrifying and touching story of innocence lost and the trials that test our sense of right and wrong. With echoes of King's classic novel It, LATER is a powerful, haunting, unforgettable exploration of what it takes to stand up to evil in all the faces it wears.
