Derry, Maine is not like any town you've ever visited. People disappear six times the national average.... and that's just the grown-ups, kids are worse. This week Johnny and Shane face their fears at 29 Neibolt Street, walk through grey water, and try to kill that f**king clown.
"It" is a 1986 horror novel by American author Stephen King. It was his 22nd book and 18th novel written under his own name. The story follows the experiences of seven troubled children as they are terrorized by a cosmic entity that exploits the fears and phobias of its victims to disguise itself while hunting its prey. The book has won numerous awards and is commonly blamed for igniting the fear of clowns within popular culture.
Long thought to be "unfilmable" the first half of the novel has recently been adapted for the screen to both critical and commercial success.
Stephen King has authored 50+ Novels, 6 non-fiction books, and more than 200 short stories. He was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Obama in 2014.
