There’s a fair amount of criticism out there about Stephen King. A lot of it is valid, but there are certain times that he’s the perfect author to be reading. Like last night when a winter storm blew through. Freezing temperatures, snow, ice, and high winds made it look like an Artic wasteland ou...

1922: A man coerces his son into helping him murder his wife. Can they keep their sanity in the aftermath? 1922 is a latter day retelling of A Telltale Heart, only with rats and a Bonnie and Clyde side-story. It's also damn good and a prime example of what Stephen King can do when he has a limited...

4.5 Stars. Very Dark and "Wonderfully Gruesome" collection. Was happy to have found this gem when cleaning and reorganizing one of my too-many to-read bookshelves here at home, and even though I find I've already read each and every one...SHEESH...I actually didn't remember the ending on a couple...

"Life is fair. We all get the same nine-month shake in the box, and then the dice roll. Some people get a run of sevens. Some people, unfortunately, get snake-eyes. It's just how the world is." Full Dark, No Stars is a collection of 4 novellas in which King explores the "dark side" to people, and...

there are times when it seems stephen king is afflicted with 'murakami syndrome'... y'know what i mean: the guy has quite the incredible imagination but large swaths of his prose makes it so you can't entirely rule out the fact that he might be a bit retarded. you also wonder why king feels the n...

Ok, I am going to review each story, as well, individually as they deserver. POSSIBLE SPOILERS 1. 1922 - This story is actually a confession of a man who has just murdered his wife. He has even dragged his innocent 14 year old son into this as well, which is very heartbreaking. I feel this story m...

I reviewed it in the Guardian - you can read the full review over at http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/nov/05/full-dark-stephen-king-review, so I'm not going to put it all up here for a while. But it begins... Novellas are an odd form of writing, and there is no love for them in publishing. Th...

Thanks to Goodreads, I have been introduced to a lot of fine authors I would not otherwise have heard of. Some have become new favorites. But no matter how enjoyable these authors' works are, none of them can compare to the security and enjoyment of going back to Stephen King. I often complain of bei...
