later stephen king poster large


Two of my favorite genres, supernatural and pulp, and one of my favorite authors all rolled into one? Can I get an amen? Stephen King returns to the Hard Case Crime series with Later, coming on March 2nd, 2021, from Titan Books. Having enjoyed his first two entries, The Colorado Kid and Joyland (as well as really digging everything I've read in the Hard Case Crime catalog, this is an instapurchase.

Hard Case Crime, the award-winning line of pulp-styled crime novels published by Titan Books, will publish LATER, a brand-new novel by Stephen King, on March 2, 2021. LATER tells the story of Jamie Conklin, a boy whose unusual abilities could aid his single mom and her police detective lover – but only at a terrible cost. One of the most beloved storytellers of all time, Stephen King is the world’s best-selling novelist, with more than 350 million books in print.

LATER is the third book Stephen King has written for Hard Case Crime. Both of the previous two, THE COLORADO KID and JOYLAND, were New York Times bestsellers.

Stephen King commented, “I love the Hard Case format, and this story—combining a boy who sees beyond our world and strong elements of crime and suspense—seemed a perfect fit.”

“LATER is a beautiful story about growing up and facing your demons—whether they’re metaphorical or (as sometimes happens when you’re in a Stephen King novel) the real thing,” said Charles Ardai, the Edgar Award-winning editor of Hard Case Crime. “It’s terrifying, tender, heartbreaking and honest, and we’re so excited to bring it to readers.”

Like Stephen King’s previous books for Hard Case Crime, LATER will be published initially as a paperback original, featuring an original cover painting by Paul Mann. This edition will be followed by a limited-edition hardcover that will feature two new cover paintings by awardwinning artist Gregory Manchess, one for LATER itself and one for a fictitious novel within the novel that features prominently in the plot. An ebook edition of LATER will also be available.

He's the puppet master. You don't see him, but he pulls the strings that gets things done. He's the silent partner. He's black ops. If you notice his presence, it's the last thing you'll notice — because now you're dead. He's the shadow you thought you saw in that dark alleyway. You can have a conversation with him, and when you turn around to offer him a cup of coffee, he's already gone.
