Originally published in 1987, Misery was nominated for the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel in 1988, and was later made into an Academy Award winning film starring Kathy Bates and James Caan, as well as an off-Broadway play of the same name.


Misery’s protagonist is Paul Sheldon, a writer famed for his Victorian-era romance novels that revolve around the life and loves of Misery Chastain. Following the completion of his latest book, Paul is rescued from a near fatal car crash by his self-proclaimed #1 fan Annie Wilkes, who transports the writer to her home only to hold him hostage after discovering what Paul has done to Misery in his latest book. Annie forces Paul to write a new book modifying the story – no matter what it takes.

Stephen King's Misery, Artist Gift Edition

Great packaging and prompt delivery, but crazy high custom fees. It's such a beautifully executed book though, and I didn't expect Dave Christensen to be included on the signature page as well. Well worth the price.

Beautiful Book!

As always, Suntup has delivered an over-the-top beautiful edition. You can see the quality of the book immediately, and once you have it in your hands, you won’t want to put it down. The art is wonderful, and absolutely perfect. I can’t recommend Suntup highly enough.
