Stephen King To Release New Short Story


Prolific author Stephen King has unveiled plans for a very special release for his next offering: an ebook published exclusively in French and German.

According to his website, the warm welcome he received on his visit to Germany and France last November (pictures from that trip above) inspired him to write a new short story, Bad Little Kid. To thanks his fans there, they'll receive the exclusive release of it in their native tongue: Böser kleiner Junge In German and Sale Gosse in French.

It will be released initially as an eBook only on March 14th, and marks the first new published material of the year for King.

You can check out the artwork below, and according to Stephen King France on Facebook, the synopsis involves 'A devilish kid who inevitably causes the disappearance of loved ones, a dirty kid who led the accounting officer George Hallas in the corridor of death. And that could one day cross your path...'
