Four early novellas: Rage, The Long Walk, Roadwork, and The Running Man. After Columbine, Rage and The Bachman Books were allowed to go out of print, but the other three are still available as separate paperbacks.

A rare treat for Stephen King devotees- four spellbinding novels under one cover, published under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman, but with all the gripping suspense of wintage King.
Rage- a high school Show-and-Tell session explodes into a nightmare of evil...
The Long Walk- Only death can keep you from the finish line- in the ultimate competition of the all-too-near future...
Roadwork- What happens when one good-and-angry man fights back is murder- and then some...
The Running Man- In the year 2025, the best men don't run for President, they run for their lives...

Read this book a long time ago, right after Schwartzneger made "The Running Man". The story is only vaguely like the movie. The story I really liked and remember the most was "The Long Walk". I'm not a big horror fan, but I enjoyed this book.

This version includes the controversial novella "Rage." In later editions, "Thinner" replaces this novella in the collection.
