Tracing the Trails Ebook.jpg

For over forty years, Stephen King has been one of the biggest names in literature and popular culture.

In 2013, author and Constant Reader Chad A. Clark embarked on a journey, not of miles but of pages and words, reading all of Stephen King's works. Every book and short story, in the order they were released.

What lies between these covers are his reflections along the way, the search for inspiration in a style of writing that has evolved over all this time. A trip from Castle Rock to the depths of Derry. From the Blasted Lands to the farthest reaches of Mid-World.

For all of us who have been lost in many a King book and pined for the chance to look him in the eyes and say, "We thank you."

With an introduction by Richard Chizmar and tons of guest reviews, this book is over 400 pages of pure King fandom. A co-production with Darker Worlds Publishing.



"Poetic, unnerving, and heartbreaking. The partnership between Boden and Lutzke yields the kind of story that leaves you aching and unsettled. Long after finishing, I couldn’t stop thinking about Maggie, her boys, and what happens out behind the barn."

- Kristi DeMeester, Author of BENEATH.

The boys crept to the window and watched as Miss Maggie carried the long bundle into the barn, the weight of it stooping her aging back. Rafter lights spilled from the barn doors and Davey saw an arm fall from the canvas-wrapped parcel. He smiled.


“She got someone!”

Both children grinned and settled in their beds, eyes fixed to the ceiling.


This was family growth.
