Stephen King


24 Jan, 2006

hardcover_prop_embed (14)King publishes the apocalyptic novel, Cell, about a New England artist struggling to reunite with his young son after a mysterious signal broadcast over the global cell phone networks turns the majority of people into vicious animals. A role in the novel was auctioned off to a charity donation on eBay.

One (and only one) character name in a novel called CELL. Buyer should be aware that CELL is a violent piece of work, which comes complete with zombies set in motion by bad cell phone signals that destroy the brain. Like cheap whiskey, it’s very nasty and extremely satisfying. Character can be male or female, but a buyer who wants to die must in this case be female. In any case, I’ll require physical description of auction winner, including any nickname (can be made up, I don’t give a rip).

The role went to a Ft. Lauderdale woman who paid over $25,000 to give as a gift to her brother, Ray Huizenga, who was made a zombie slayer who later commits suicide.
