That was the last one I wrote before I cleaned up my act. All are as relevant today as the day the novel was written. It is also a tale about the eternal power of love and the grace of redemption.

While walking in the woods near the small town of Haven, Maine, Roberta Bobbi Anderson , a writer of Wild West -based fiction, stumbles upon a metal object which turns out to be a protrusion of a long-buried alien spacecraft.

Once exposed, the spacecraft begins releasing an invisible, odorless gas into the atmosphere which gradually transforms people into beings similar to the aliens who populated the spacecraft. It also provides them with a limited form of genius which makes them very inventive, but does not provide any philosophical or ethical insight, instead provoking psychotic violence on the part of people like Becka Paulson, who kills her adulterous husband by fatally rewiring the TV, killing herself in the process and the disappearance of a young boy David Brown , whose older brother Hilly teleports him to another planet referred to as Altair 4 by the Havenites.

The book's central protagonist is a poet and friend of Bobbi Anderson, named James Eric Gardener , who goes by the nickname "Gard". He is a man with left-leaning, liberal sensibilities who is apparently immune to the ship's effects because of a steel plate in his head, a souvenir of a teenage skiing accident.

Unfortunately, Gard is also an alcoholic. His relationship with Bobbi deteriorates as the novel progresses.
Stephen King’s ‘The Tommyknockers’ in Works as Movie From James Wan, Roy Lee
She is almost totally overcome by the euphoria of "becoming" one with the spacecraft, but Gard increasingly sees her health worsen and her sanity disappear. The novel is filled with metaphors for the stranglehold of substance abuse, which King himself was experiencing at the time, as well as for the dangers of nuclear power and radioactive fallout as evidenced by the physical transformations of the townspeople, which resemble the effects of radiation exposure , of unchecked technological advancement, and of the corrupting influence of power.
Government agencies are uniformly portrayed as corrupt and totalitarian throughout the book, and Bobbi and Gard themselves are led into thinking that they can use the ship's "power" as a weapon to overthrow such authority figures. Seeing the transformation of the townspeople worsen, the torture and manipulation of Bobbi's dog Peter, and people being killed or worse when they pry too deeply into the strange events, Gardener eventually manipulates Bobbi into allowing him into the ship.
After he sees that Bobbi is not entirely his old friend and lover, he gives her one more chance before he finally kills her with the same gun that Monster Dugan had almost killed her with in her back field previously. However, just before she dies, Bobbi sends a telepathic APB and all the townspeople show up at her place very quickly.
