Read full description of the books:
Día 1 de octubre: Dios está en los cielos, la bolsa está a 10.140, la mayoría de los vuelos llegan a tiempo y Clayton Riddell, un artista de Maine, casi salta de alegría por Boylston Street, en Boston. Acaba de firmar un contrato para ilustrar un cómic que le permitirá mantener a su familia con su arte en vez de tener que dar clases. Ya ha comprado un regalo pequeño (¡pero caro!) a su sufrida mujer y tiene claro lo que va a regalar a su hijo Johnny. ¿Por qué no algo para sí mismo? Clay presiente que todo va a ir mejor a partir de entonces.
Pero bruscamente se transtorna todo: se produce una devastación masiva, causada por un fenómeno que más adelante le llamarán EL Pulso, que se reproduce a través del teléfono móvil. De todos los teléfonos móviles. Clay, junto a unos cuantos supervivientes desesperados, se encuentra arrojado a una edad oscura, rodeados por el caos, la hecatombe y una masa humana degradada a su estado más primitivo.
Parece que no hay forma de escapar a esta pesadilla. Sin embargo, una flecha indica a Clay el camino de su casa en Maine; mientras él y sus compañeros de viaje avanzan entre escenas espeluznantes hacia el norte, empiezan a ver los crudos signos que confirman la dirección: KASHWAK=NO-FO. Una promesa, quizás. O una amenaza.
Hay miles de millones de teléfonos móviles en el mundo. ¿Quién no tiene uno? Esta novela fascinante, absorbente y cruel de Stephen King no solamente hace la pregunta “¿Me oyes ahora?”, sino también responde, y de forma muy, muy inquietante.

Read information about the authorStephen Edwin King was born the second son of Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. After his father left them when Stephen was two, he and his older brother, David, were raised by his mother. Parts of his childhood were spent in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where his father's family was at the time, and in Stratford, Connecticut. When Stephen was eleven, his mother brought her children back to Durham, Maine, for good. Her parents, Guy and Nellie Pillsbury, had become incapacitated with old age, and Ruth King was persuaded by her sisters to take over the physical care of them. Other family members provided a small house in Durham and financial support. After Stephen's grandparents passed away, Mrs. King found work in the kitchens of Pineland, a nearby residential facility for the mentally challenged.
Stephen attended the grammar school in Durham and Lisbon Falls High School, graduating in 1966. From his sophomore year at the University of Maine at Orono, he wrote a weekly column for the school newspaper, THE MAINE CAMPUS. He was also active in student politics, serving as a member of the Student Senate. He came to support the anti-war movement on the Orono campus, arriving at his stance from a conservative view that the war in Vietnam was unconstitutional. He graduated in 1970, with a B.A. in English and qualified to teach on the high school level. A draft board examination immediately post-graduation found him 4-F on grounds of high blood pressure, limited vision, flat feet, and punctured eardrums.
He met Tabitha Spruce in the stacks of the Fogler Library at the University, where they both worked as students; they married in January of 1971. As Stephen was unable to find placement as a teacher immediately, the Kings lived on his earnings as a laborer at an industrial laundry, and her student loan and savings, with an occasional boost from a short story sale to men's magazines.
Stephen made his first professional short story sale ("The Glass Floor") to Startling Mystery Stories in 1967. Throughout the early years of his marriage, he continued to sell stories to men's magazines. Many were gathered into the Night Shift collection or appeared in other anthologies.
In the fall of 1971, Stephen began teaching English at Hampden Academy, the public high school in Hampden, Maine. Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on novels.
