This book is only 70 pages. They are good stories but a very short book. I always feel very disappointed when I purchase a book only to find out afterwards how few pages it has.

Some unique ideas, well written. Although I could anticipate the ending for most, I enjoyed reading them all.

Well, I was originally disappointed because I didn't read carefully and thought these were BY King. They're not...but still the best short stories I've read in a long time.

I love king and gIve been reading his work for about 35 years now. This collection of stories from other authors is not worth the hour it took I to read it!
