A solitary finger pokes out of a drain. Novelty teeth turn predetory. Flies settle and die on an old pair of sneakers in New York and the Nevada desert swallows a Cadillac. Meanwhile, the legend of Castle Rock returns...a collection of 23 Stephen King Stories.

Quite a few good tales in this collection, including those upon which the recent Nightmares & Dreamscapes TV series was based. Includes both the excellent non-fiction baseball piece "Head Down" and the poem "Brooklyn August" which I've read first appeared in a big-league baseball program.

Another good group of King's stories. His introductions and conclusions are really insightful. I have favorite stories, and stories I couldn't wait to get through. I'm sure you will too. King is detail HEAVY, and I wonder if I don't like that style anymore. I have a "just get to the point" feeling sometimes lol...

As w/all short story collections, there are some good ones and some that are okay. I thought this was a better collection than some of his other recent material.

This book is excellent. A classic King horror short story book. I love that the Man can have maybe twenty paragraphs to grab you, suck you in and spit you out. Stories like this made him famous...

Most of Stephen King's novels are so big that it can be a little intimidating, especially for a new fan like me. The short stories are great in this collection.

A compilation of short stories of horror and mystery written by the master himself. A #1 best seller.
