  • Stephen King strikes again

    By pammaiam
    Some of the stories left me longing for more, but if someone had given me the book to read without an author’s name, I would have known- ‘this is a book full of Stephen King’s schtuff’. I read Salem’s Lot when I was 8, in 1979. Stephen King has always been and will always be my favorite author. He brings horror to paper, and that’s the best way. The imagination is so much better than even CGI.

    I like a long story. I love the Dark Tower Series the best. BUT these stories are wonderful and Drunken Fireworks was pure T bliss and euphoria!
  • Not his best collection, but still great!

    By ES the horror fan
    This collection of short stories from Stephen King disappointed me in only one way: Most of the stories were not as scary as they could have been. Otherwise, the book is totally enjoyable! Every story is a good story, but these are the best if you’re mainly looking for horror stories, as I was: Mile 81, the first story in the book, and quite a stunning opener, The Dune, which can best be summed up in one word: CREEPY, Bad Little Kid, which proves why there is probably no horror writer who handles the “bad seed” sub genre than King, Under the Weather, which is creepy and sad, The Little Green God of Agony, which seems to redefine the word TERRIFYING, That Bus is Another World, which is nothing short of horrifying, and Obits, which is compelling and disturbing! I received The Bazaar of Bad Dreams as a Christmas gift; I wanted the book because, while I am a huge Stephen King fan, I’m a bigger fan of his short stories than his novels. I’m a fan because I love horror stories, which is why I am a huge fan of his first two short story collections, Night Shift and Skeleton Crew, the only other short story collections I’ve read by him. This is the only reason I was slightly disappointed with this book. Still, I highly recommend it not only for his horror fans, but for any fan of his short story collections! Main reason: These 21 stories are all amazing!
  • Great read!

    A fantastic collection of short stories...all in the true Stephen King style. I liked the short explanation of the idea of the story prior to each one
  • Love Bazaar!!

    I am a fan of Stephen King's short stories, being that they last a few mere pages, and aren't always scary, and this current leg was awesome. He has such a passion for baseball, makes you wonder why he didn't go into broadcasting. But I am very happy to loose myself in his stories. Now don't get me wrong about the other full length books, like IT, Salems Lot and the like that were scary and excellent in their own creepy ways, which I love all the more, but being able to read various stories on one book is nice to have from time to time.
  • Love some, others are meh

    Some of the short stories in this collection are just plain incredible, while others leave me bored. It’s typical of such a large volumn of work, and I think it’s not possible for someone to like absolutely everything an author makes. But otherwise it’s a great book and I’m so glad I bought it!
  • Can’t stop reading!

  • Another side of King

    By Long legion
    I enjoyed his book of short stories, usually I'm not fond of that style. King never disappoints though and I think he is the type of writer who will never retire!
