From the master of horror, Stephen King’s new collection of short stories is sure to entertain. With some new stories that had never before been published and some old favorites thrown in, there seems to something for everyone. Each story is introduced with a passage of origin or his motivation for writing it before hand and theme’s range from the supernatural to the humorous.
The characters are quite well rounded for such short stories and it’s very easy to become entangled with them, this book definitely leaves you wanting more. From the story of the columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries to the neighbourhood fireworks rivalry that gets out of hand, each tale weaved is appealing and compelling. In true Stephen King fashion he reminds his constant reader to examine the stories, “but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.”
