Stephen King publishes From a Buick 8
From a Buick 8 is a novel by horror writer Stephen King.
Published on September 24, 2002, this is the second novel by Stephen King to feature a supernatural car (the first one being Christine, which like this novel is set in Western Pennsylvania). According to the book sleeve: "From a Buick 8 is a novel about our fascination with deadly things, about our insistence on answers when there are none, about terror and courage in the face of the unknowable." The title comes from Bob Dylan's song "From a Buick 6", and is also clearly an homage to H.P. Lovecraft's short story "From Beyond", with which the novel shares thematic and plot elements. Award winning independent publisher Cemetery Dance Publications published a signed Limited Edition of the book which sold for $500 or more on eBay.
