This latest omnibus work has been highly anticipated among King fans whose last novella collection, Full Dark, No Stars, was published a decade ago.

Although his works of short stories are also highly revered, his novella compilations have been the inspiration behind many movie adaptations such as The Shawshank Redemption, Apt Pupil and Stand By Me.

If It Bleeds contains three other works aside from the titular story:  Mr. Harrigan’s PhoneThe Life of Chuck, and Rat.
