Exclusive: GWENDY'S FINAL TASK Stephen King And Richard Chizmar Interview

In early 2017, Richard Chizmar revealed to me that he was collaborating with Stephen King on a novella called Gwendy's Button Box. He asked if I would answer some questions about events, places and people in Castle Rock, Maine, that famous (nay infamous) fictional town that has been the setting for several King novels and numerous stories. I happily obliged.

Review: 'Chasing the Boogeyman,' by Richard Chizmar

Regular readers of thrillers and mysteries can get hardened as to what really unsettles us. After all, we tell ourselves, it's just a story. But Richard Chizmar's latest novel is inspired by real events in his childhood. It's a memoir of sorts, but with fictional touches and reconstructed dialogue. Illustrated with actual crime scene photos, he tells the story of a boogeyman who terrorized his hometown of Edgewood, Md., in the late 1980s.
