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.

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.

SYNOPSIS
Here are twenty superlative stories devilishly designed by Stephen King to take you where you never dreamed of going before. Included, too, are a telescript that made home screen history, a startling poem, and an essay that Stephen King regards as his best nonfiction writing.
These versatile selections vary widely in style and subject matter and vividly display the full range of Stephen King's matchless imagination. And to add to his readers' pleasure and curiosity, King includes his own entrancing inside accounts of how the stories came into being and why.

Stephen King calls this extraordinary retrospective Nightmares and Dreamscapes. But don't let his title fool you. When you read it, sleep will be the furthest thing from your mind.

Entertaining melange of stories, some utterly grotesque, some silly, and some just plain weird. Entertaining read, as always!

A great collection of shorts by King. Good for those times when you can't devote to a whole novel. Pick it up and read one when you can!

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...

23 formerly uncollected works, with King as bizarre as ever. A handful of the stories have been rewritten or dressed up for this occasion. King's introduction (a defense against the ivory tower opinions of his critics) and endnotes mentions several sources, including The New Yorker, which printed the lengthy ``Heads Down''--about Little League teams up in Maine--that King calls ``the best nonfiction writing of my life.''
Wouldn't give this up except that I finally got a hardback copy.

This was just ok. There were a couple of stories I really liked, but there were a few that just felt like a waste of time to read. Full Dark, No Stars short stories were so much better.
