Different Seasons (1982) is a collection of four Stephen Kingnovellas with a more serious bent than the horror fiction for which King is famous. At the ending of the book, there is also a brief afterword, which King wrote on January 4th, 1982. In it, he explains when he wrote the four novellas, as well as how his agents expressed concern he would be "written off" as someone who only wrote horror.
