This is another excellent collection from the master of horror, suspense and downright creepiness.

There were some stories that I didn't enjoy as much as the others, and I didn't quite get the first poem, but overall this is a string collection featuring a wide range of characters and weird concepts.

I also really liked the introduction to each story - I love getting into the heads of writers I enjoy reading. ( )

This is a group of short stories. Some are definitely better than others. Most have vague endings. He tells a little backstory about each, a bit about how the story came to him or why he wrote it and who it's for (each is dedicated to someone). I finished this a couple of days ago, and I still can't get some parts out of my head, like the man with this sick wife and dog under his bed eating ??? *shivers* Anyways, he is great about drawing me in with his storytelling even if occasionally I'm left with a feeling of not-quite-getting-it.

Stephen King never fails to deliver the spooks and thrills with horror. This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. ( )

A truly wonderful collection that's seems to capture so many amazing aspects of life, death and the great spectrum of what's in between. ( )

I shoot from the hip and keep a stiff uper lip.

(Je dégaine mon flingue et je garde mon flegme.)

AC/DC
Dedication
First words
I've made some things for you, Constant eader; you se them laid out before you in the moonlight. But before you look at the little handcrafted treasures I have for sale, let's talk about them for a bit, shall we? It won't take long. Here, sit down beside me. And do come a little closer. I don't bite.

Except...we've known each other for a very long time, and I suspect you know that's not entirely true.

Is it?
