The Official Cover Of 'The Outsider' By Stephen King Unveiled, Reminisces Art Of 'A Monster Calls' By Patrick Ness

Is it just me or does the cover of Strephen King's The Outsider looks strangely familiar. Oh right, it's because it looks almost like the cover of A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and it is not such a bad thing, either. I loved it! And oh, is this also reminding you of The Upside Down from Stranger Things?

If you've seen most of the covers's of King's previous book, then you would say this cover is different in almost all planes. The prior ones are always bold and vivid in colors, almost like a slap in the face. But this one is suggestively grainy and dreamy that it does not even give a Stephen King book vibe. And as I said, it is not a bad thing.

Check out the cover of The Outsider by Stephen King.

The Outsider by Stephen King


An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories.

An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King’s propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.

The Outsider by Stephen King will be released on May 22, 2018.
