From legendary storyteller and master of short fiction Stephen King comes an extraordinary new collection of twelve short stories, many never-before-published, and some of his best EVER. "You like it darker? Fine, so do I," writes Stephen King in the afterword to this magnificent new collection of twelve stories that delve into the darker part of life--both metaphorical and literal. King has, for half a century, been a master of the form, and these stories, about fate, mortality, luck, and the folds in reality where anything can happen, are as rich and riveting as his novels, both weighty in theme and a huge pleasure to read. King writes to feel "the exhilaration of leaving ordinary day-to-day life behind," and in You Like It Darker, readers will feel that exhilaration too, again and again. "Two Talented Bastids" explores the long-hidden secret of how the eponymous gentlemen got their skills. In "Danny Coughlin's Bad Dream," a brief and unprecedented psychic flash upends dozens of lives, Danny's most catastrophically. In "Rattlesnakes," a sequel to Cujo, a grieving widower travels to Florida for respite and instead receives an unexpected inheritance--with major strings attached. In "The Dreamers," a taciturn Vietnam vet answers a job ad and learns that there are some corners of the universe best left unexplored. "The Answer Man" asks if prescience is good luck or bad and reminds us that a life marked by unbearable tragedy can still be meaningful. King's ability to surprise, amaze, and bring us both terror and solace remains unsurpassed. Each of these stories holds its own thrills, joys, and mysteries; each feels iconic. You like it darker? You got it.… (més)

Great Collection
King provides insight on human nature by telling stories with uncanny background. Each story is distinct but has believable characters. The story I liked the best was the answer man. Perhaps the scariest is the story of the man who discovers a dead body, and finds himself a primary suspect. ( )

Overall, just a solid collection of King's shorter fiction (though, to be fair, the two longest stories are my favourites).

I'm not going to go over every story, but for my money, the best ones were

"Two Talented Bastids" (almost a spiritual—and much improved—sequel to DREAMCATCHER)
"Danny Coughlin's Bad Dream" - This one, to me, is exactly what I wanted ALL the Bill Hodges/Holly Gibney stories to be closer to, and never got. He finally nailed it.
"Rattlesnakes" - This one literally gave me a lump in my throat over the death of one of King's older characters.

Honestly, there truly wasn't a bad story in the batch, though a couple didn't quite grab me as much. But after tow one-two stinker punch of FAIRY TALE and HOLLY, this is a welcome return to form. ( )

"You like it darker? Fine. So do I, and that makes me your soul brother." Agreed! :-)

12 more short stories from Uncle Stevie! One of which, “Rattlesnakes”, is a sequel to “Cujo”! Which, if memory serves, was sort of a sequel to the “Dead Zone”. So, does make this a trilogy? It also is connected to "Duma Key" and there are creepy twins ("Shinning"?), so...
And me being the big Stephen King nerd that I am, I re-read Cujo (again!) before reading this novella! Poor Vic...

As for the stories… fun to read! Creepy too!
What did happen in that cabin in 1978? And I’ve been sober for a while now, and I’m pretty sure that’s not exactly how you do step five!
“Danny Coughlin’s Bad Dream” with the detective that spouts random numbers is a jewel of a story! Over 150 pages! I could hardly put it down!

"The world is full of rattlesnakes. Sometimes you step on them and they don't bite. Sometimes you step over them and they bite anyway."

“And a Stinky Old Bastard Shall Lead Them”

Squeak and squeak and squeak

SEE US, ROLL US, DRESS US! PUSH US!
