The #1 national bestseller about a famous novelist held hostage by his “number one fan” and suffering a frightening case of writer’s block—that could prove fatal. One of “Stephen King’s best…genuinely scary” (USA TODAY). Paul Sheldon is a bestselling novelist who has finally met his number one fan. Her name is Annie Wilkes, and she is more than a rabid reader—she is Paul’s nurse, tending his shattered body after an automobile accident. But she is also furious that the author has killed off her favorite character in his latest book. Annie becomes his captor, keeping him prisoner in her isolated house. Annie wants Paul to write a book that brings Misery back to life—just for her. She has a lot of ways to spur him on. One is a needle. Another is an axe. And if they don’t work, she can get really nasty. “Terrifying” (San Francisco Chronicle), “dazzlingly well-written” (The Indianapolis Star), and “truly gripping” (Publishers Weekly), Misery is “classic Stephen King...full of twists and turns and mounting suspense” (The Boston Globe).

Surprising as it may sound, many people take comfort in their own misery. Feeling too good for too long (or even feeling good at all) can be scary for people, explains Anne Katherine. "Achievement creates anxiety. Intimacy leads to fear. Happiness produces uneasiness. Pleasure causes pain. The solution to this dilemma: what feels good has to be stopped. I call this an addiction to misery." Katherine's fascination and perspective book provides immediate assistance to those people who think they might be making choices that keep them at a "carefully calibrated level of existence--beneath bliss and above despair."

On a beautiful spring morning in 2004, Brian Foutz heard a car door slam shut in his driveway. He walked to his window, expecting to see his daughter, Victoria, returning from an overnight stay with a friend. Instead he saw two officers from the county sheriff's office. The officers were coming to deliver news that would change Brian's life forever. Once inside, the officers told Brian that his daughter wouldn't be coming home. At only eighteen years old, Victoria had been shot in the head and killed. From Misery to Ministry is the story of how Brian and his wife, Leah, find the strength to overcome the loss of their daughter. Brian and Leah offer a moving, intimate account of Victoria's funeral, the trial of her accused killers, and their efforts to find meaning after the grief and heartbreak caused by their daughter's death. With advice on dealing with sudden rushes of emotion, seeking professional counsel, and maintaining a loving marriage in the face of the darkest of tragedies, From Misery to Ministry is a powerful tool for any family that has lost a loved one. Brian and Leah bless all readers with their honesty, their vulnerability, and their message of hope.

Fight the Misery Conspiracy: Reclaiming Your Right to be Happy takes an unapologetic look at the dynamics of our society and points out very distinctly the oft-overlooked delusions that sabotage our joy and send us looking for love and peace in all of the places they can't be found. With irreverent humor, poignant anecdotes and a down-to-earth slant, Fight the Misery Conspiracy provides readers with practical resources for overcoming the negative dynamics that creep into our individual and collective mindsets. Written for survivors of addiction, illness, violence and financial collapse, it appeals primarily to those seeking a progressive spiritual solution to their trauma. Keying in on the dynamics of isolation, guilt and divisiveness found with addictions, codependency and clinical depression, the teachings of spiritual teachers, both ancient and contemporary were integrated for solutions to these issues that work.

Cartoon is a comedy about cartoons and the joy of misery. As Siegfried, the cartoonist, remarks; ‘If you cut succulent slices off people, then everyone laughs. However, if the scalpel slips, then you’re down to the bone. But then, of course, comedy is tragedy speeded up.’ An Evening with the G.L.C. is a play about public morality versus political expediency, and it exposes the dire state of London. Labour Councillor Rennip, who is on the G.L.C., faces some very awkward questions from his son on the combative TV Current Affairs programme ‘Confrontation’. Shakebag is a farcical comedy about an amateur company’s chaotic rehearsal of Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream on the Bard’s birthday while the amused ghost of Shakespeare looks down from on high at the antics of his thespian ‘mechanicals’. Succubus is Lili, who may, or may not be, a Mesopotamian storm demon or the Moon Goddess Herself. Mark, the Born-Again Christian, confronts Lili with his burning secret, and the play explores female myths, male fears, paganism and Christianity. 'Cartoon works superbly as a terse, racy and very funny comedy about divorcees, fractured affairs, bizarre accidents and general insanity.' -Evening Standard 'An Evening with the G.L.C. is a passionate, searing play, in which David Pinner presents some disturbing, eye-opening facts about the politics in London.' - Time Out
