Soon to be a television series on Spike TV #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King's terrifying novella about a town engulfed in a dense, mysterious mist--as humanity makes its last stand against unholy destruction ... In the wake of a destructive Maine summer thunderstorm, an impenetrable mist descends from the direction of a local military facility and infiltrates the small town of Bridgton. David Drayton and his son Billy are dragged into a living nightmare as unnatural and violent forces concealed by the mist begin to emerge, wreaking havoc in their wake. Now trapped in the local supermarket with a ragtag group of survivors, David unexpectedly faces a growing threat from within, one that promises to challenge the boundaries of sanity itself. In this horrifying mist, hearing is seeing--and believing. And what you're about to hear, you'll never forget. Originally published in his acclaimed collection, Skeleton Crew, this riveting, eerie novella proves why Stephen King is a master storyteller in short form.

Over-rated novelist, Stephen King doesn't know anything about building or sustaining horror. His books are always way too long.

What a roller coaster! From start to finish I was glued to the pages and was flipping non-stop! I highly recommend you get this in the short story collection "Skeleton Crew"
There are other very fun and scary stories in that collection. Highly recommend if you like scary and intense crazy roller coaster of a ride. And, its only 200 pages so King does not mess around and gets straight to the suspense!

My favorite story probably of all time from king. I have it in the short story collection form and I have read it over a dozen times.
When the movie came out I was nervous in watching it be/c they always wreck the movie renditions of the books. My husband persuaded me to watch it after SOME time and I didnt regret it. The movie is perhaps the closest to the written word that I have ever seen. except for the ending but thats forgivable be/c its also good and the ending in the book is only open.
Unbelievably great story. Read it. Very vivid imagery.
