A rare treat for Stephen King devotees-four spellbinding novels under one cover, published under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman, but with all the gripping suspense of vintage King. Rage— The pressures have become too much for teenager Charlie Decker, and he explodes with shocking consequences—shooting two teachers and holding a class of 24 students as hostages. Strangely, frighteningly, Charlie's captives become his cohorts in a final confrontation. The Long Walk—Sponsored by the New American Government and under the watchful eye of the Major, the Long Walk begins. Exactly 100 men and boys are participating in this 450-mile marathon that changes subtly from an innocent rivalry into a grueling life-and-death struggle. Roadwork—Barton George Dawes is facing unalterable changes. A new highway coming through town is forcing him to move his home and the laundry that's been his life for 20 years. Unable to cope, Bart plans his ultimate stand against progress with chilling precision. The Running Man—In a futuristic civilization, Ben Richards is beset by the age-old problems of unemployment and a critically ill child. In desperation, he becomes a contestant on "The Running Man," a bizarre game show that will earn him a fortune or result in his death!
