A star-studded cast of readers presents unabridged tales of horror and suspense from master storyteller Stephen King.
The Stephen King Amusement Park - an unnerving experience, with rides every which way to hell...and a few to glory.
A solitary finger pokes out of a drain. Novelty teeth turn predatory. The Nevada desert swallows a Cadillac. Meanwhile, the legend of Castle Rock returns...and grows on you. What does it all mean? What else could it mean? Stephen King is here with a powerful collection of stories - a vast, many-chambered cave of a volume.
The long reach of Stephen King's imagination will take you on a roller coaster to places you've never been before. You will lose sleep. But Stephen King, writing to beat the devil, will do your dreaming for you.

Three of my favorites:
In "Dolan's Cadillac" we live through years of obsessive investigation and planning for revenge. A man traps the mob boss who ordered his wife's death and systematically covers up all evidence of his crime. Perfect.
If you could remove mankind's violent tendencies and bring about "The End of the Whole Mess" of murder and war, you would do it, right? Even if it wasn't the smartest thing to do.
In "Suffer the Little Children" we meet Miss Sidley, a teacher who has been taking care of children all of her adult life. One day her students begin acting strangely...so she takes care of them.
This book is highly recommended for Stephen King fans and readers who enjoy a well-crafted story that makes their brains squirm for a day or two after reading.
Top reviews from other countries
Similar to Night Shift, Skeleton Crew - many short stories (approx. 20).
Differs from Four Past Midnight and Different Seasons - they have fewer but longer stories.
The notes section describes King's inspiration for each story and is interesting.
Readers will find a favourite story, mine was Dolan's Cadillac.
King writes great short stories but this collection doesn't seem to have many stand out stories (compared to other collections).
Worth reading if you are a fan.
If new to King and short stories, Different Seasons is highly recommended first as it contains the classic, Rita Haywood and the Shawshank Redemption.
