From the Publisher

At HarperCollins, authors and their work are at the center of everything we do. We are proud to provide our authors with unprecedented editorial excellence, marketing reach, long-standing connections with booksellers, and insight into reader and consumer behavior. Consistently at the forefront of innovation and technological advancement, HarperCollins also uses digital technology to create unique reading experiences and expand the reach of our authors.

HarperCollins was founded by brothers James and John Harper in New York City in 1817 as J. and J. Harper, later Harper & Brothers. In 1987, as Harper & Row, it was acquired by News Corporation. The worldwide book group was formed following News Corporation's 1990 acquisition of the British publisher William Collins & Sons. Founded in 1819, William Collins & Sons published a range of Bibles, atlases, dictionaries, and reissued classics, expanding over the years to include legendary authors such as H. G. Wells, Agatha Christie, J. R. R. Tolkien, and C. S. Lewis.

The house of Mark Twain, the Brontë sisters, Thackeray, Dickens, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Maurice Sendak, Shel Silverstein, and Margaret Wise Brown, HarperCollins has a long and rich history that reaches back to the early nineteenth century and offers our publishing team a depth of experience.

Product description


“Thankfully, unlike most writers, King actually is funny when he intends to be.” — Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“King’s Thumps Dreadfulwater is a marvelous character . . . any of King’s Dreadfulwater novels will take you right out of your reading chair and into the action.” — Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“King’s books are filled with mischief and sly humour, but his words always manage to reveal some hidden truth about life which makes you look at the world in a slightly different way than you did prior to reading his work. Even his mystery stories are more than what they look like on the surface and Obsidian is no exception.”  —
