On January 25, Stephen King published a Kindle Single called "Guns," an essay about gun violence in the United States and possible solutions. “I think the issue of an America awash in guns is one every citizen has to think about,” said King. “If this helps provoke constructive debate, I’ve done my job. Once I finished writing ‘Guns’ I wanted it published quickly, and Kindle Singles provided an excellent fit.” The e-book is 99 cents.
