Four very good short stories.
The Langolier's: What happen's to today when it's over? A small group of traveller's finds out.
Secret Window, Secret Garden: While trying to prove his story was not plagiarized, a writer remembers a past event and feels guilty.
the Library Policeman: While borrowing books to help with a speech, a gentleman meets a strange librarian who threatens to send the Library Policeman. Why does that conjure up horrible memories.
The Sun Dog: A simple Polaroid camera causes fear in the great town of Castle Rock. No matter what you aim the camera at, the photo of a big mangy stray dog appears on the photograph.

I thoroughly enjoyed all 4 books. ( )

None of them memorable enough to remember them now, two weeks after finishing it.

I officially shocked myself with the dislike I experienced with these four stories. I remember really liking The Langoliers, and not minding Secret Garden, Secret Window. I had no memory of Library Policeman, and dimly remember thinking The Sun Dog was only okay.

This time around, quite frankly, I didn't like any of them. Maybe it was the mood I was in, I don't know, but I found all the dream sequences--a plot device that I absolutely despise--particularly frustrating, as every one of the four stories had at least one, and usually multiple sequences. I also found most of the characters, with the exception of Dirty Dave from Policemen and Kevin's father from Sun Dog.

I will say that each of the four stories had fantastic concepts, but, unfortunately, each one was buried under unsympathetic or stock King characters, interminable sidetracks, plot devices seemingly designed only to extend an already bloated story, and endings where the protagonist seems to pull the solution out of his ass. Solutions come from dreams, from dying girls, from gut feelings.

Each one of these stories are fantastic short stories of twenty-fifty pages or so, not the 200-page behemoths each one ended up being.

I'm so disappointed. I had been looking forward to this one. ( )

Classic Stephen King. Each creepy in their own way. ( )

A wonderful collection of four short stories (novella sized) from the master of horror. The stories are "The Langoliers" - one of my all time favourite King shorts, "Secret Window, Secret Garden", "The Library Policeman" and "The Sun Dog".A must read for fans of King. ( )

In the desert I saw a creature, naked, bestial, Who, squatting upon the ground, Held his heart in his hands, And ate of it.

I said, "Is it good, friend?" "It is bitter--bitter," he answered; "But I like it Because it is bitter And because it is my heart." --Stephen Crane
I'm gonna kiss you, girl, and hold ya, I'm gonna do all the things I told ya In the midnight hour. -- Wilson Pickett

"I still believe in the resilience of the human heart and the essential validity of love; I still believe that connections between people can be made and that the spirits which inhabit us sometimes touch. I still believe that the cost of these connections is horribly, outrageously high...and I still believe that the value received far outweighs the price which must be paid. I still believe, I suppose, in the coming of the white and in finding a place to make a stand...and defending that place to the death." (From the Introduction)
