New York: Doubleday, 1974.

First edition stated on copyright page and “P6” in the gutter of page 199. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Stephen King on the title page. A few small tape remnants to the cloth, near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. A very nice example.

Stephen King has been read by more people than any living author, and more than most dead ones. As Don Heron commented in "The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural," King specializes in "contemporary American scenes, everyday parents and kids and teenagers, vulgarly realistic language - a believable setting awaiting the coming of terror." He has become the most popular horror writer of all time. Several adaptations of Carrie have been released, including a 1976 feature film, a 1988 Broadway musical, a 1999 feature film sequel, a 2002 television movie, and a 2013 feature film remake.
