The Bachman Books: Four Early Novels by Stephen King


6th printing w/ metallic embossed title fonts of this rare and out of print omnibus featuring the long out of print, banned novel "Rage." 

Solid reading copy with heavy creasing to cover and spine.  Front endpaper has a few spot stains and some loosening to top edge [see photos]

However, binding is tight and actual contents look and read pretty flawlessly.  Publishers mark across bottom of text block.

The name on the cover was "Richard Bachman," but the imagination inside could only belong to one man--Stephen King. for years readers of these four novels wrote to "Bachman," asking if the author was really Stephen King writing under a pseudonym. At last the secret is out--and so are these four spellbinding novels of future shock and suspense, now available in one volume.

RAGE - a story of disturbing psychological horror about an "extra" ordinary high school student... [long banned by King himself due to the U.S. school shooting epidemic.]

THE LONG WALK - a chilling glimpse into a future America where a macabre marathon 

ROADWORK - an eerie variation on the theme of "Home Sweet Home"

THE RUNNING MAN - a nightmare vision of a ghoulish game show.where you bet your life--literally.

The first two of these superlatively shocking novels were completed before Carrie was even begun. the others were written in between some of Stephen King's most popular bestsellers to date. And each of them is marked by the undeniable fascination of one of the most brilliant imaginations of our time.
