IT celebrates 25th birthday with collector’s edition

The enigma that is ‘IT’ first terrified readers in 1986… but the reign of terror did not stop there; with a ravenous relentlessness, Stephen King’s carnivorous creature has inflicted intellectual injury for a traumatic 25 years to date. King’s bloodcurdling contemplation of the ‘darkness that lies beneath’ is symbolised by one of horror’s most menacing of monsters; Pennywise the Dancing Clown. The inter-dimensional predatory life-form that changes form and lives in the sewers changed not only the lives of seven Derry children but the lives of millions of readers around the globe. Deeply disturbing in every way, IT treads where the mind fears to tread, it unearths what has been long buried and wanders into the depths of the soul, where no man dare wonder.

I worked on the book in a dream. I remember very little about the writing of it, except for the idea that I’d gotten hold of something that felt very big to me, and something that talked about more than monsters…
— Stephen King
