The little town of Castle Rock, Maine has witnessed some strange events and unusual visitors over the years, but there is one story that has never been told... until now.There are three ways up to Castle View from the town of Castle Rock: Route 117, Pleasant Road, and the Suicide Stairs. Every day in the summer of 1974 twelve-year-old Gwendy Peterson has taken the stairs, which are held by strong (if time-rusted) iron bolts and zig-zag up the cliffside.At the top of the stairs, Gwendy catches her breath and listens to the shouts of the kids on the playground. From a bit farther away comes the chink of an aluminum bat hitting a baseball as the Senior League kids practice for the Labor Day charity game.One day, a stranger calls to Gwendy: "Hey, girl. Come on over here for a bit. We ought to palaver, you and me."On a bench in the shade sits a man in black jeans, a black coat like for a suit, and a white shirt unbuttoned at the top. On his head is a small neat black hat. The time will come when Gwendy has nightmares about that hat...Journey back to Castle Rock again in this chilling new novella by Stephen King, bestselling author of The Bazaar of Bad Dreams, and Richard Chizmar, award-winning author of A Long December. This book will be a Cemetery Dance Publications exclusive with no other editions currently planned anywhere in the world!...

Gwendy's Button Box Reviews

  • LaDonna

    Ever since I can remember, I have been a fan of Stephen King. Do not get me wrong, I do not like everything that I have read by him. Yet, more oft than not, I enjoy the stories that King writes. Sometimes he gives us a story that makes us question our own morality and sense of decency. The novella, Gwendy's Button Box is one of those stories.

    Stephen King and Richard Chizmar take us back to Castle Rock so we can meet and follow Gwendy Peterson as she deals with possessing a button box that is

    I know short stories aren't for every reader, even for Constant Readers, but I for one-LOVE THEM! Especially when wickedly talented writers like Stephen King and Richard Chizmar have their hand in it. I saw this book sitting on my nightstand about an hour ago and I thought, "What the actual fuck am I waiting for?!"

    So I picked it up and I read it.

    And damn it was good. It was very, very good. See, people complain that short stories skimp on character development--as if one needs hundreds and hundr

    I listened to this as an unabridged audiobook read by Maggie Siff who starred in Son’s of Anarchy. I never watched that show because there’s no monsters in it (I know, I am a terrible person, no need to tell me) so I don’t know her work. I learned this from listening to the Q&A with King & Chizmar at the end of the audio. Methinks they might’ve been enamored a little with her work on the show. She’s a little flat at times but overall does a decent enough job with the material but, honest ...more

    What a fantastic book! It's stories like this that really showcase Stephen King's complexity and depth both as a writer and as a person. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this; my only gripe is that I wish the book could be longer. But c'est la vie.

    Off to find the next gem!

  • Amelia

    Squeezed this in as a last book for March.

    One of my favourite books by Stephen King.

    It is a short and quick read, only took me a few hours to read it.

    I enjoyed everything about it, and don't think there was anything that disappointed me!

    Highly recommend it.

  • Suzanne

    I loved this story! It was a really quick read but it packed a good punch! Very entertaining and imaginative.

    Gwendy Peterson lives in Castle Rock, Maine. Every morning, she jogs up the suicide stairs. One day, she reaches the top of the stairs and meets a strange man dressed in black. He offers Gwendy a gift, something he says is hers. The man in black produces a canvas bag and reveals a button box. Gwendy is drawn to the button box and gleefully accepts it, unaware of the power it holds.

    Back in February, Entertainment Weekly blew everybody’s minds by announcing a brand new novella from Stephen King. The fact that he’d written something new obviously came to no surprise. The dude is one of the most prolific writers in history. What did astonish us all, however, was the fact that this new story would evidently take place in the New England town of Castle Rock.

    Constant Readers worldwide will recognize this town as the fictionalized setting from some of King’s most classic works, s
