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.

Stephen and Marvel have decided to push back the launch of the Dark Tower comic books to 2007. "Given the size of the project and all the creative talent involved, I want to give the Marvel series all the room to breathe it needs and deserves," said Stephen. "I've got so much else going on in 2006 - two novels coming out, CELL and LISEY'S STORY, and the work with John Mellencamp on 'Ghost Brothers of Darkland County.' The Marvel series is going to be a blast, and I want to have the time to enjoy it."
The 1st issue of the yet-to-be-named first arc of the Dark Tower comic series will be shipping in February 2007. The last issue of this six-issue series will be shipping in July 2007. The first hardcover collection will be shipping in October 2007.
Here it is - the completed Halloween Story. Thanks to all who participated and to Cola and James for keeping track of it along the way!
Stephen is working with Marvel to produce a series of comic books inspired by and adapted from his Dark Tower novels. The first six issues will appear monthly starting in April 2006 and then will be collected in a hardcover volume published by Marvel in time for the 2006 holidays. The comics will integrate scenes from the novels with new material, creating a linear history of Roland Deschain as a young man.
