An Unabridged Novella Unavailable In Any Collection!

Tapping into our primal fears of modern technology that made Cell a #1 bestseller, Stephen King sets his sights on the latest high-tech gadget in UR, in which a mysterious e-book reader opens a disturbing window into other worlds.

Reeling from a painful break-up, English instructor and avid book lover Wesley Smith is haunted by his ex-girlfriend's parting shot: "Why can't you just read off the computer like everyone else?" He buys an e-book reader out of spite, but soon finds he can use the device to glimpse realities he had never before imagined, discovering literary riches beyond his wildest dreams...and all-too-human tragedies that surpass his most terrible nightmares.

From vintage cars (Christine and From a Buick 8) to household appliances (Maximum Overdrive) to exercise equipment (Stationary Bike), Stephen King has mesmerized us with tales of apparently ordinary machines that take on lives of their own. UR gives this classic theme an up-to-the-minute spin, resulting in a horror masterpiece for our time and for the ages. Download and start listening now!

    " An interesting premise for sure, but a poor ending in my humble opinion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Anthony | 1/8/2014

    " Good but not great short story. King makes great use of a Kindle as the "MacGuffin" and creates some memorable characters in very few words which should result in a very good story but he lets the reader down by holding back at the conclusion of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jennifer Patrick | 1/6/2014

    " I swear I think SK is drinking again! He has been churning out one fabulous story after another! If I hadn't had enough reasons NOT to buy a Kindle or sinmilar device this story has definately pushed me further into my "real books only" corner. If I bought an e-reader I would certainly get one that was a direct portal to hell and not get away with just a visit from the Paradox Police. "
