Riding the Bullet by Stephen King has been described as a “ghost story in the grand manner” and the story of “a young man who hitches a ride with a driver from the other side,” but in this special edition only available from Lonely Road Books, we’re going to show you King’s classic novella in a way you’ve never seen it before: alongside the feature film screenplay adaptation by director Mick Garris.
The road from print to the silver screen is often a bumpy one and much has been written about how a story is sometimes transformed to make it work in moving pictures. This is your chance to experience Riding the Bullet in a way only those close to the production of the film ever have. Start with King’s original novella, then flip the book over and read the original script by Mick Garris. Compare what he kept, what he had to change, and even the storytelling flourishes he added to round out the tale.
This highly collectible special edition was published in the same manner as our acclaimed edition of The Arthur Darknell Double — in the tradition of the old Ace Doubles. This is the very first Stephen King Limited Edition to be published in this manner, and it was a huge hit with the collectors.
Complete with stunning cover artwork by Alan M. Clark and beautiful interior artwork by Bernie Wrightson, this exclusive Lonely Road Books special edition was one of the most discussed small press books of the year.
