Product Description

STEPHEN KING is the author of more than seventy books, all of them worldwide bestsellers.

During the years 1966-1973, just before he published the seminal masterpiece Carrie, Stephen King wrote under two names. Under his pseudonym Richard Bachman, King wrote horror stories for magazines, followed by a series of novels, which were published in the early 80s in the collection The Bachman Books. It was on publication of his next novel Thinner that people realised the author was in fact Stephen King.

Bachman died of cancer of the pseudonym but in 1995 The Regulators surfaced and was published simultaneously with Stephen King's Desperation. Blaze, 'an essential missing piece in King's oeuvre' (Independent on Sunday) was the last novel written during Bachman's early period, and was rediscovered and published in 2007.

King's recent bestsellers include Fairy Tale and Billy Summers. Many of his titles are the basis for major motion pictures, TV series and streamed events, including, IT and The Shawshank Redemption, which is IMDb's top-rated movie of all time.

King is the recipient of the 2020 Audio Publishers Association Lifetime Achievement Award, the 2018 PEN America Literary Service Award, the 2014 National Medal of Arts, and the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He lives in Bangor, Maine, with his wife, novelist Tabitha King.

The iconic bestseller from Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman - now with a stunning new cover look.

He's got a plan. But he hasn't got a clue.

Clayton Blaisdell's capers are strictly small-time until he meets George Rackley. With Blaze's brawn and George's brains, they pull off a hundred successful cons. Then George plans the one big score every small timer dreams of: kidnapping the infant heir to a family fortune.

The trouble is that by the time the deal goes down, the brains of the operation has died. Or has he?

Now Blaze is running into the white hell of the Maine woods with a baby as hostage. The crime of the century just turned into a race against time . . .

The name on the covers was Bachman. But the imagination could only belong to one man: Stephen King.

This classic BACHMAN title will be relaunched as part of the exciting King reissue programme 2021-2024.

'BLAZE feels like an essential missing piece in King's oeuvre...compelling''King's brilliance is in making his readers root for the kidnapper rather than the authorities'Tightly written and compelling

About Author

STEPHEN KING is the author of more than seventy books, all worldwide bestsellers. His recent titles include The Institute, which was described by the Sunday Express as a 'masterpiece', The Outsider (voted winner of the Goodreads Choice Award for best Mystery and Thriller 2018), and If It Bleeds.

Many of his titles have been turned into celebrated films, TV series and streamed events including IT, 'a book which speaks to everybody' (Guardian), The Shawshank Redemption and Stand By Me.

King was the recipient of America's prestigious 2014 National Medal of Arts and the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. In 2007 he also won the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America. He lives with his wife Tabitha King in Maine.

In his 'lifetime', Richard Bachman published five novels. A sixth, THE REGULATORS, was published after he died of pseudonym cancer (a relatively painless way to go) in 1985. He developed a cult following both before and after his death. Two of his novels (THINNER and THE RUNNING MAN) were made into motion pictures.

BLAZE--both brutal and sensitive--is his final legacy. The last of the Bachman novels, written in 1973 and published for the first time. Stephen King's 'dark half' may have saved the best for last.
