By Stephen King and Richard Chizmar

What if you had the power to make things happen with the touch of a button? When Gwendy is given a mysterious box with seemingly limitless potential, she is forced to grapple with her new-found ability to make potentially catastrophic choices. As the box’s steward from adolescence into her adulthood, Gwendy comes to wonder if it is she who controls the box, or the box which controls her. There is a general feeling of menace that penetrates the tone. It’s an intriguing and thought-provoking novella by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar that stays with you well after you’ve finished reading, and makes you wonder about your own sense of agency.
