By Stephen King
Many authors dream of being as successful – or as prolific – as Stephen King. Each of his 50-plus books have gone on to become worldwide bestsellers, and he’s already netted another one in 2018 with his May release of The Outsider. His latest, due out on the eve of Halloween, features a small-town protagonist with an unusual affliction: He’s persistently losing weight, and the scale shows the same number no matter how many heavy clothes he puts on. The book is remarkably trim, too – at just 144 pages, it’s an easily digestible novella for a fall weekend.
