INCLUDES A CONVERSATION BETWEEN STEPHEN KING & RICHARD CHIZMAR!

Stephen King teams up with long-time friend and award-winning author Richard Chizmar for the first time in this original, chilling novella that revisits the town of Castle Rock—paired on audio with King’s Edgar Award–nominated story “The Music Room.”

There are three ways up to Castle View from the town of Castle Rock: Route 117, Pleasant Road, and the Suicide Stairs. Every day in the summer of 1974, twelve-year-old Gwendy Peterson has taken the stairs, which are held by strong—if time-rusted—iron bolts and zig-zag up the cliffside.

Then one day when Gwendy gets to the top of Castle View, after catching her breath and hearing the shouts of kids on the playground below, a stranger calls to her. There on a bench in the shade sits a man in black jeans, a black coat, and a white shirt unbuttoned at the top. On his head is a small, neat black hat. The time will come when Gwendy has nightmares about that hat…

The little town of Castle Rock, Maine has witnessed some strange events and unusual visitors over the years, but there is one story that has never been told—until now.

4.5 Gwendy’s Button Box ★★★★★
It’s odd to me that, given the emphasis in the afterward by Chizmar on getting the setting right, I don’t really recognize Castle Rock. But otherwise, this novella is a home run for me. I loved the character of Gwendy, and the mystery of the box. In true SK fashion, nothing is explained about how th...

4.0 My Review of Gwendy's Button Box
Gwendy's Button Box by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar is a tale about Gwendy and her button box. Of course the button box is enchanted, or cursed. That is up to the reader to decide. What else can I say about this book? It's Stephen King! I'm a bit bias when it comes to his books. I usually don'...

5.0 Old School Stephen King is Back
Seriously. I needed this to be longer. I wanted it to be longer. I had so many questions left and I really do hope that King follows this up with the next owner of the button box someday.
