In the title story of this 2002 short story collection, we meet a young man with the power to channel a fantastic universe and alter our reality just by typing a few words. I have a feeling Stephen King knows just how that feels.    A writer who thinks stories are "found things" and never runs out of imagination, King seems to be something of the Dickens of our day. Yet while he may be rich and famous on account of his novels, short-story collections like this one best showcase …

Pros: Short, descriptive, not terrifying, easy read     Cons: none off hand     The Bottom Line: If Stephen King were a singer he would be Garth Brooks. Both are weavers of words.     I’ve found the difference between the novella, the extended novel, and a collection of short stories is panache. Some writers have the ability to draw your attention through a 1,000 page novel but fail to grab you with a 3 page short story, and visa versa. …

The last couple of Stephen King collections, while still always superior to most of the junk out there, were still not the greatest. NIGHTMARES & DREAMSCAPES for example, had lots of little scraps and stuff that really felt like it had come out of a long-forgotten trunk.

The weakest of the lot is LT'S THEORY OF PETS (which you can get an audio CD of, with King reading in …

King's first collection of short stories since 1993 ("Nightmares and Dreamscapes") shows the horror master still at the top of his game. There isn't a dud in the bunch. King chose the order of the stories by shuffling all the spades in a deck of cards plus the joker; and the serendipitous result, he says, created a nice balance between "the literary stories and the all-out screamers." But these stories are already a nice balance in themselves: eerie and spare, chilling and vivid, full of strong …

Often, less of Stephen King is better than more! That may seem to be a contradiction, but his later novels tend to go on to almost agonizing length, and cry out for some editing. I understand his new Dark Tower work (as yet unpublished) is 900 pages!!! Anyway, I enjoy a well-written short story occasionally, and this book is full of them. I've read a few of these stories in other places, but they are all uniformly interesting to me, some more than others, of course. It shows that King can write …
