Read Stephen King’s New Short Story for Free!

Stephen King released a new short story titled “Laurie” yesterday. In a tweet, King called it “an appetizer to the main course”:

King is referring to his forthcoming novel The Outsider, which is set to come out on May 22. The story is 32 pages and centers on a recent widower named Lloyd who is gifted a puppy (the titular Laurie) by his well-meaning sister. This dog is milder than King’s famous Cujo, but the story still packs a punch.
