First Line Friday #126

Welcome October, you have everything I love: cooler temperatures, gorgeous fall leaves, fall festivals, corn mazes, Haunted Houses and HALLOWEEN! This year October’s First Line Friday’s will consist of the first lines of novels from the Master of Horror himself: Stephen King! 

Now to start with today’s First Line Friday… This is a novel that has been around for YEARS and has countless covers:

The terror, which would not end for another twenty-eight years- if it ever did end- began, so far as I know or can tell, with a boat made from a sheet of newspaper floating down a gutter swollen with rain.

Welcome to Derry, Maine …

It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real …

They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them back to Derry to face the nightmare without an end, and the evil without a name.
