Kurzbeschreibung

Stephen King: Uncollected, Unpublished by Rocky Wood is the most comprehensive review of the Stephen King works you've never read, including coverage of nearly one hundred unpublished and uncollected works of fiction--novels, short stories, screenplays, and poems!

Best of all, this eBook features the complete text of two lost works written by King, including an entire chapter from King's unpublished 1970 novel Sword in the Darkness that has never been published anywhere in the world!

Stephen King: Uncollected, Unpublished also gives in-depth coverage to the nearly one hundred variations and versions of King's published stories--edits, updates, and changes King made between reprintings of his work.

Details about the two works written by Stephen King that are printed in this book:

-The first and only publication of a very long chapter from King's unpublished 1970 novel Sword in the Darkness--one of the lost Stephen King novels that only a handful of people in the world have ever read! This novel will never be published, and this is your only chance to catch a glimpse of a young Stephen King developing his craft. The raw power that would eventually make him the bestselling horror author in the world is definitely evident in this very long excerpt!

-The first book publication of the obscure King poem "Dino"--previously only published in a small literary magazine and just recently discovered at the E.S. Bird Library of Syracuse University in New York!

In addition, the author has discovered and taken detailed notes about a work previously unknown by the King community -- "Molly," which was King's original screenplay submitted for The X-Files. It is a completely different story from what was later produced for the series as "Chinga" and the authors give in-depth coverage to the differences!

Here are some other examples of what you'll find in Stephen King: Uncollected, Unpublished:

-Over one hundred entries detailing all of King's uncollected and unpublished works, many of which have never been available for public discussion

-In-depth descriptions and discussions of several unpublished King novels such as Sword in the Darkness and incomplete novels such as George D X McArdle

-Detailed overviews of dozens of King screenplays that were never produced, including his own adaptations of Cujo, Children of the Corn, The Dead Zone, Desperation, Dolan's Cadillac, Night Shift, The Stand, and his adaptations of other classic novels such as Something Wicked This Way Comes

-Essays covering two dozen of King's lost and hidden works that are not available anywhere in the world, such as "An Evening at God's" and the infamous "Squad D"

-Details of eight new and previously unheard of King stories discovered in the Stephen King papers at the University of Maine

-Details of two King stories published in his high school newspaper and other stories King wrote as a child and teenager

-A complete Stephen King bibliography covering nearly four hundred works of fiction and non-fiction

-Instructions on finding the original appearances of King's lost works that appeared in obscure publications, and suggestions on how you can add these rare works to your collection.

I am an avid King reader and have been collecting his works gradually over the years through various outlets and was afraid I would never have the chance to read - let alone own - this amazing book from Cemetery Dance. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled across the Kindle edition a year after resigning to the fact that the limited (20,000 copies) run was beyond my wallet!

To be clear, this is not a novel. If you have read Tolkien, as an example, this is more akin to the works that Christopher Tolkien undertook in his "History of Middle Earth" series. Far from a mere list of works, this tome is massive and highly enjoyable to any King fan. I have always been fascinated by the author's process and this book gives readers a glimpse into the mind of King that is rarely seen or talked about. Details on un-produced screenplays (both original and some for very famous directors), missing short stories from childhood publications, and even an entire chapter of a read-with-permission-only manuscript at the University of Maine are highly sought after and fascinating to read.

I read somewhere that some readers of the print version of this book were upset that this offered only a summary of works. If you're like me and find reference sites like imdb.com interesting then this book will not disappoint. The magic of Kindle allows you to download a sample beforehand, and I would highly suggest that you do so. I will agree that this book is not for everyone since it is more like an overview of hard-to-find and lost works by King, but I will say that I never felt cheated by the format of the book. Some of these pieces will never be published - but through this updated work, fans of King can experience these obscure stories and perhaps they will ignite the imagination, which, for the price, is a done deal.

HASH(0x9aff65c4) von 5 Sternen Awesome NONFICTION book ABOUT King's work 19. Juli 2012
Von Bryant Burnette - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I was surprised by some of the reviews of Rocky Wood's excellent book on this page; they seem to have been written by people who are too ignorant to have bothered to read even the most basic information about the product they were buying. Gosh, folks, even a cursory glance at the cover ought to informed you that this is not a book BY Stephen King, but a book ABOUT Stephen King, by Rocky Wood. So frankly, if you bought this thinking that it was some sort of magical new collection of previously unpublished stories by King, I'm not sure what to say to you, other than to suggest that in the future you ought to pay more attention to your actions. You should also take some accountability for them, rather than blame an author for writing a book you didn't understand.

Now, that's what "Unpublished, Uncollected" isn't. Let's talk about what it IS.

For hardcore Stephen King fans, it is AWESOME. THAT'S what it is. Why is it awesome?

I'm glad you asked.

(1) It includes a seventeen-page chapter from "Sword in the Darkness," which is an unpublished novel King wrote in the early 1970s. In addition to that, Wood has provided a very detailed synopsis of the entire novel. We King fans may never be able to read the novel itself, but thanks to Rocky Wood, we've got a thorough recap of the plot, plus a sample chapter. (There is also a full reprint of a King poem, "Dino.")
(2) There are similar recaps -- though, sadly, no sample sections -- for other unpublished (or extremely rare) King works such as "The Aftermath" and "Slade," and even some for unfinished works like "George D.X. McArdle" (a Western novel King once began).
(3) Did you know King wrote an "X-Files" episode? You probably did know that. Did you know that the episode, as originally written, was ADTLY different from the episode that was finally produced? Well, it was. There is a lengthy section in this book on the differences between "Molly" (the original teleplay) and "Chinga" (the final episode). As a big X-Phile, I was totally charmed by this section.
(4) For collectors, there are sections here about stories you may never have heard of that can still be tracked down. This ranges from newer short stories (such as "The Dune" and "Premium Harmony") to older ones -- such as "The Crate," "The Night of the Tiger," and "Weeds" -- that have never found their way into one of King's collections.
(5) There are detailed analyses of stories that were published on their own and then later worked into novels. For example, if you've read "The Tommyknockers," you know the story of Becka Paulson. But did you know that story was previously published -- in a radically different format -- as "The Revelations of Becka Paulson"? Did you know sections from other novels -- such as "It" and "Cujo" -- also had excerpts that were published in formats different from how they appeared in the final novels? Rocky Wood will tell you the differences between the versions.

Those are just the tip of the iceberg.

This book is probably not for everyone. If all you care about is reading King's stories -- and frankly, that's understandable -- then it is probably not for you (except for the chapter from "Sword in the Darkness"). If, however, you have an interest in ALL of King's work, even the works you may never get to read for yourself, this book is an absolute treasure.

Odds are, you know already whether this book is for you or not. If you think the answer is no, give it a pass.

If you think the answer is yes, then trust me: the answer IS yes.

HASH(0x9bc919d8) von 5 Sternen Only a review of King's works, not his actual works 1. September 2011
Von MamaBear007 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I suppose I should have read the description more closely. I bought this for my husband because he loves everything Stephen King. This doesn't actually contain Stephen King's works; in this compilation, Rocky Wood tells you what Stephan King said in his unpublished works. My husband would have much rather read King's material himself (and formed his own opinion) than to read somebody else's review of Kings materials. This is too much like a book report written by a student who had read King's works.

HASH(0x9afbaba0) von 5 Sternen An Excellent Resource, and apparently Frequently Slandered 22. März 2014
Von Troy Blackford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
NOTE: Every single one-star review this book has is unfair. How could a book called 'Stephen King: Uncollected, Unpublished' by a different author be a published collection of Stephen King stories?! HOW?!? Anyway, deep breath. Now for the review...

This is an amazing and exhaustive non-fiction guide to the works by Stephen King which have not been collected, and those known pieces that have not been published. There are a LOT! This book is almost 500 pages. Stephen King has so many well-known books and short stories that it is kind of a shock how many released stories that have never been featured in his collections exist, and still more how many stories, novels, and screenplays have been finished but never released or never finished. This was really well researched, with minimal editorializing. Sometimes, I didn't agree with the author's opinions on some of the work, but that was fine because those kind of opinions were kept to a scholarly minimum.

A fine resource for those curious about the uncollected or unreleased work of Stephen King, ranging from his high school newspaper days (and even before!) to about 2010. Highly recommended.

Did not know there were this many unpublished stories out there. Not something for a straight read through, but a must for fans.
