From A Buick 8 by Stephen King

For the last twenty-two years, at the back of the state police barracks in Pennsylvania, there's a terrifying secret being held in Shed B. It lures its victims in scared and terrified. However, look beyond the gorgeous chrome fenders, silver grille and exotic exhaust system; you'll find that nothing on this car works; this is because the power of the Buick 8 is not under the bonnet.
This car - this particular Buick - has lured curious officers to watch its horrifyingly memorable displays; from blinding lightshows to feeding time. Go on, take a look at it; because this particular car is an absolute work of art; it's really something that's out of this world... but don't get too close or you may be next.

I bought this book at a second-hand shop and immediately got my nose into it; finding it as mesmerising as 'Christine' and a bloody good story. I don't wish to let this one go as I want to read it again and again as the years go by.

I find that Stephen King is a writer who gets better with each book he puts out. When we think he's topped his books, he goes and amazes us one more time and does what we think is impossible and pulls out another best seller. He is one of the highest paid horror writers around and no wonder; he's a brilliant storyteller to boot! I have already talked about his life and works earlier; however there is a link to his official website on the sidebar.
