Stephen King, the world's bestselling author, that you do not want to visit...because it's pure hell to live there! In the desolate mining town of Desperation, Nevada, there is something very wrong. The local lawman is besieged by delusions of murderous grandeur, dead animals decorate the landscape, and visitors are few and far between. But when an unlucky group of travelers is waylaid in the desert anti-oasis, the battle lines are drawn against an ancient and unholy evil, determined to be born again! Praise for "Desperation": "[ "Desperation" is] astonishing...the terror is relentless".-- "Publishers Weekly" " "Desperation" builds to a climax reminiscent of "The Stand"."-- "Washington Post Book World" "A double dose of ghostly horror. "Desperation" is pure King, a rollicking good tale skillfully told of repugnance and godliness doing high-screech battle".-- "San Francisco Chronicle"
