As Stephen King has continued to publish numerous works beyond one high point of his career, in the 1980s, scholarship has not always kept up with his output. This volume presents 13 essays on many of King's recent writings that have not received the critical attention of his earlier, more popular work. This collection is grouped into three thematic categories—"King in the World Around Us," "Spotlight on The Dark Tower" and "Writing into the Millennium," each of which examines a particular aspect of King's contemporary canon that has yet to be analyzed.
