Stephen King Wiki

First edition hardcover of Different Seasons, King's first non-horror anthology.

Different Seasons is the 15th book published by Stephen King, and was his second collection of stories. The book was released by Viking on 27 August 1982, and collected four novellas. King has stated that the collection was "lucky", because it did not contain horror. The book has spawned three very well-received film adaptations, Stand by Me, The Shawshank Redemption and Apt Pupil.

  1. Hope Springs Eternal: "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption"
  2. Summer of Corruption: "Apt Pupil"
  3. Fall From Innocence: "The Body"
  4. A Winter's Tale: "The Breathing Method"
