This is the cover art for Six Scary Stories, a collection featuring six stories that were selected by Stephen King from a competition run by Hodder & Stoughton and the Guardian to celebrate the publication of his own The Bazaar of Bad Dreams collection. He was so impressed by the quality of these stories that he recommended that they be published together as a book.
The idea for the cover art came from King himself and is inspired from the winning story Wild Swimming by Elodie Harper.
The book will be available in trade hardcover and trade paperback editions from Cemetery Dance on October 31st. Hodder & Stoughton will also be publishing the collection as an ebook on August 25th in the UK and Commonwealth.
