Stephen King & Owen King - Sleeping Beauties (2nd Hand Paperback)
This is a UK first edition paperback printing with limited edition (white) cover, produced exclusively for Tesco and quite scarce now (the Tesco sticker has been removed). The copyright page has the number 1 present to confirm the first paperback edition.
As the women of the world sleep, the world awakens to a new and frightening reality.
In a future so real and near it might be now, ( . . . yes folks, it's a virus!) something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze.
If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place.
The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain?
Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women's prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously absorbing novel. Although Stephen has collaborated before, this is the first full-length collaboration between father and son writing partnership, Stephen King and Owen King.

'No longer content with dominating the horror genre for decades, Stephen King now seems set on creating top-notch chillers as a family business . . . kick-started by a very Kingish high concept . . . made immersively believable by the usual Kingian control of a vast cast of brilliantly drawn characters. Bravo!' - Daily Mail.
