CELL SPOILER: "Based on the information given in the final third of Cell—I’m thinking about the reversion back toward the norm of the later phone crazies—it seems pretty obvious to me that things turned out well for Clay’s son, Johnny. I don’t need to tell you this, do I?”
Simon & Schuster Audio will be releasing the unabridged audiobook on CD and for download in June 2006.
Stephen King brilliantly revisits themes his fans will happily recognize in STATIONARY BIKE-a streamlined fever dream of a tale, in which an ordinary household object assumes otherworldly powers and a familiar journey takes a terrifying twist.
When commercial artist Richard Sifkitz finally gets around to having that physical he'd been putting off for years, and his cholesterol comes back dangerously high, he does what so many thirty-something, junkfood-eating couch potatoes have done before him: he buys a stationary bike, and vows to ride it regularly.
Unlike many a mid-life exercise convert, however, Richard actually starts to ride his new stationary bike. A lot. Soon he's spending so much time on his bike that he decides to put his artistic talents to use and paint a mural on the wall opposite his stationary bike - a picture of a quiet country lane that he can easily imagine himself pedaling down for hours at a time. Yet it turns out that Richard's mural is no ordinary picture - and soon his stationary bike is taking him places he doesn't want to go ... and can't stay away from.
A riveting riff on artistic frustration, midlife mortality, and hard-won redemption, STATIONARY BIKE is a thrill ride that could come only from the mind of Stephen King. And Narrator Ron McLarty, bestselling author of THE MEMORY OF RUNNING: A Novel, knows his King: he's previously read FAITHFUL:
Two Diehard Boston Red Sox Fans Chronicle the Historic 2004 Season and the classic, SALEM'S LOT.
STATIONARY BIKE will be available in June 2006 for the first time on audio and as a stand-alone story. It was originally published in the fifth installment of the Borderlands series of horror anthologies, edited by Elizabeth E. and Thomas F. Moneteleone.
