Can’t Sleep? Let Stephen King Keep You Company. The title of a recent New York Times article explains itself— the new Stephen King novel, If It Bleeds, is the the perfect restless midnight companion. Reviewer Ruth Franklin writes that “the straightforward cadences of King’s voice, paired with his signature sit-down-and-let-me-tell-you-a-story style, were immediately soothing. And the stories he was telling — about the seductions and corruptions of technology, the extremes of beauty and depravity in even the most ordinary life, the workings of a universe we can never entirely understand — were somehow exactly what I wanted to read right now.” If It Bleeds is a brilliant book of four new Stephen King novellas meant to make your skin crawl as you endeavor into terrifying adventure. Read it with the lights on and enjoy!
