Stephen Edwin King was born the second son of Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. Parts of his childhood were spent in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where his father's family was at the time, and in Stratford, Connecticut. When Stephen was eleven, his mother brought her children back to Durham, Maine, for good. King sold his first professional short story, The Glass Floor, to Startling Mystery Stories in 1967. Ur is a novella released originally for the Amazon Kindle and made available for download on 12 February 2009. In an interview in October 2010, King stated that he did not write the novella for the money: "I did it because it was interesting. I'm fairly prolific. It took three days, and I've made about $80,000. You can't get that for short fiction from Playboy or anybody else. It's ridiculous." The story concerns English instructor Wesley Smith, who is haunted after a nasty break-up by his ex-girlfriend's parting shot: "Why can't you just read off the computer like the rest of us?" Prompted by her question and piqued by a student's suggestion, Wesley places an order for Amazon's Kindle eReader. The device that arrives in a box stamped with the smile logo, via one-day delivery that he hadn't requested, unlocks a literary world that even the most avid of book lovers could never imagine. But once the door is open, there are those things that one hopes we'll never read or live through. Enjoy free online English audiobook “UR”, a breathtaking novel by Stephen King.
