I was really impressed with this book. I love Stephen King, and his short stories ESPECIALLY. This are more of a hybrid between short novels and short stories. My favorite was The Langoliers. It brought back childhood memories of sitting on the couch with my mom and dad watching the movie with a pillow held tightly. Never a dull moment with King :)
4 stories, as King puts it in the introduction, "too long to be short stories, too short to be novels." This is right before he came out with Needful Things. I really think that the story "The Library Policeman" is the best. If you like King, it's a good one to read.
Excellent writing by Stephen King. I read these stories over and over. After 6 years I finally decided I'd read them enough and should trade the book in for another ;) Like most of his writing, a few of the stories are slow to start but very rewarding by the end.
