Sleeping beauties : a novel by Stephen King( Book )

43 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in 6 languages and held by 3,548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent. And while they sleep they go to another place, a better place, where harmony prevails and conflict is rare. One woman, the mysterious "Eve Black," is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Eve a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain? Abandoned, left to their increasingly primal urges, the men divide into warring factions, some wanting to kill Eve, some to save her. Others exploit the chaos to wreak their own vengeance on new enemies. All turn to violence in a suddenly all-male world

"Stacey, a brilliant, overachieving astrobiology major at Fenton College, had planned on just another lonely spring break on campus. But when a hurricane batters the small college town, downing power lines and knocking out cell phone reception, Stacey and her friends are stranded with no way to communicate with the outside world at the worst possible moment: in the midst of an alien invasion. As space insects begin to burrow into students and staff, transforming them into slobbering, babbling monsters, a conglomeration of misfits must band together to prevent the infestation from spreading. Meanwhile, Stacey's long-stifled romantic feelings for her friend Charlotte begin to surface, while the professor she had admired and respected becomes the students' worst enemy"--

The devil's own work : a novel by Alan Judd( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After Edward, a rising young author, pens a savage review of the new novel by the world-famous O.M. Tyrell, he is surprised to receive an invitation to visit the old man at his villa in the south of France. The night of their meeting, Tyrell dies, and soon after, Edward's career mysteriously starts to soar as he earns fame, fortune and critical acclaim. But despite his achievements, Edward seems haunted, even tormented. His friend, the narrator, begins to put together the pieces of the story: an ancient, inscrutable manuscript, a beautiful, ageless woman who attaches herself to whatever writer possesses it, and a bargain to achieve success at a terrible price . . . Winner of Britain's prestigious Guardian Fiction Prize, Alan Judd's modern classic The Devil's Own Work (1991) is, as Owen King writes in the new introduction to this edition, "a perfect novel about the demonic possession that is literary ambition." This edition also features a new afterword by the author, in which he reveals the inspirations for this haunting tale

"En esta espectacular colaboración entre padre e hijo, Stephen King y Owen King nos ofrecen la historia más arriesgada de cuantas han contado hasta ahora: ¿qué pasaría si las mujeres abandonaran este mundo? En un futuro tan real y cercano que podría ser hoy, cuando las mujeres se duermen, brota de su cuerpo una especie de capullo que las aísla del exterior. Si las despiertan, las molestan o tocan el capullo que las envuelve, reaccionan con una violencia extrema. Y durante el sueño se evaden a otro mundo. Los hombres, por su parte, quedan abandonados a sus instintos primarios. La misteriosa Evie, sin embargo, es inmune a esta bendición o castigo del trastorno del sueño. ¿Se trata de una anomalía médica que hay que estudiar? ¿O es un demonio al que hay que liquidar? Una fábula del siglo XXI sobre la posibilidad de un mundo exclusivamente femenino más pacífico y más justo, que hoy en día resulta especialmente relevante."--Front book flap
