"A master storyteller at his best--the O. Henry Prize winner Stephen King delivers a generous collection of stories, several of them brand-new, featuring revelatory autobiographical comments on when, why, and how he came to write (or rewrite) each story. Since his first collection, Nightshift, published thirty-five years ago, Stephen King has dazzled readers with his genius as a writer of short fiction. In this new collection he assembles, for the first time, recent stories that have never been published in a book. He introduces each with a passage about its origins or his motivations for writing it. There are thrilling connections between stories; themes of morality, the afterlife, guilt, what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the mistakes of the past. "Afterlife" is about a man who died of colon cancer and keeps reliving the same life, repeating his mistakes over and over again. Several stories feature characters at the end of life, revisiting their crimes and misdemeanors. Other stories address what happens when someone discovers that he has supernatural powers--the columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries in "Obits;" the old judge in "The Dune" who, as a boy, canoed to a deserted island and saw names written in the sand, the names of people who then died in freak accidents. In "Morality," King looks at how a marriage and two lives fall apart after the wife and husband enter into what seems, at first, a devil's pact they can win. Magnificent, eerie, utterly compelling, these stories comprise one of King's finest gifts to his constant reader--"I made them especially for you," says King. "Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.""-- "From a master of the short story, a collection that includes stories never before in print, never published in America, never collected and brand new- with the magnificent bones of interstitial autobiographical comments on when, why and how Stephen King came to write each story"--… (mer)

Slow start here but once you get to Ur things pick up and I really enjoyed almost every story after that one.

I tend to have mixed feelings about King but I tend to like his short stories more than his full length novels. What really shines here are the intros from
King to each story. I love it when he talks to constant reader and gives the backstory on his story ideas and writing. ( )

This collection is aptly titled - a lot of the stories end in gruesome and bitter ways. In recent years, King's style has long since changed from the rural characterizations of his 1970s early work to a more grand guignol approach. Some will like that, and I can enjoy it in small doses. The most positive aspect of King's short stories are the tight, controlled, on-point writing within the confined space. Personally, I think his longer novels could stand some more aggressive editing. His short stories - especially this collection - seem to have gone through a round or two of outside influence.and I think that helped a lot. In a story like "Herman Wouk is Still Alive," the bitter ending needs to get wrapped up with a punch, and that happens here. I think that impact would have been lost in an extra 10 pages, for instance (I also read this story in its original magazine appearance, and something about it being in a book gives the narrative more weight...I was not as unsettled by the ending in the magazine, as I was here. Strange...).

"A Death," I think will appeal to King's longest-running fans. It's the story that captures the rural-speak "Night Shift" vibe the closest. "That Bus is Another World" is close to the grim view a lot of the stories in "Skeleton Crew" had - it's not supernatural, not even horrible in a direct, specific, "it's happening to me" way - it's the 'distance' from the horror that makes it terrible. If that makes sense.. "Mile 81" is sort of like "Mrs Todd's Shortcut," except not so benign.

Very few of the stories are straight-up supernatural. Ultimately, it's four stars for me because of that. I loved "Night Shift," for example, because of the supernatural/horror elements of the stories. They weren't "real." This collection IS real - these events, mostly, COULD happen. And frankly, that took some of the fun away for me - which isn't to say I don't appreciate the writing. As Stephen King has gotten older he's much more attracted by the grimness of what's right in front of him, rather than fictional tales of zombies or vampires. We see that not just in these stories, but his new "Finder's Keepers" trilogy, which is mostly a real-world setting, with a little supernatural influence. That same vibe is through most of these stories.

But I like ghost stories where I don't have to think that world doesn't actually exist. I like horror of creatures beyond my imagination that might not actually show up to murder me (I really liked "Revival," which WAS old-school horror)...and these stories by King are a world that could/does/will exist - and that IS a very true bazaar of bad dreams!

Book 77 by Stephen King. It's hard not to admire this man's dedication to his craft and the manner in which he puts together his stories. I really enjoyed the prelude that he provided to each story and giving some background to how the story was birthed which I found fascinating. Some of the stories such as Blockade Billy and Drunken Fireworks, I had read previously as stand-alone books or perhaps on another short story compendium that SK released previously, however the retelling by the voice over actors gave them a different dimension and added to the aura of the story which breathed new life into an old tale. Off-course, some of the stories are better than others, but a trip back into SK land is a rare treat and I found myself savoring the stories and not wanting it all to end. As a constant reader, I appreciated the references and similarities to his other stories the Easter eggs that I have come to look out for and pause for a moment as the memories all come flooding back to the reference in question what a pleasure! Now that for me is what sets SK apart from others, the ability to swiftly take you away on a journey to a land faraway and oftentimes scary but you go willingly and with eagerness for what lies ahead. Thanks SK for another beauty from another constant reader. ( )

I enjoyed the narration by Stephen King and the other readers.

The stories are amazing, and even the "Baseball Story" kept my interest.

It is my habit to listen to my Audibles or music with one earbud in while I work at the library. When we are busy with patrons, I stop.

There are projects where I scan old photos, or index books. This day, I was entering data from an old card catalog onto a spreadsheet.

While I was listening to the first story, my supervisor turned around to ask me a question. At that time, every hair on my body was standing straight up. I had shivers running up and down my back.

She said, "Are you okay, you look like you've seen a ghost!" It took me a minute to move and hit the bars to stop the story. I clenched in horror, and I love the feeling. It is a well visited library. Many people come. It is not like I am alone, but it SCARED me silly.

Thank you Stephen King, I love how you work the craft! Kudos. ( )

I've made some things for you, Constant eader; you se them laid out before you in the moonlight. But before you look at the little handcrafted treasures I have for sale, let's talk about them for a bit, shall we? It won't take long. Here, sit down beside me. And do come a little closer. I don't bite.

Except...we've known each other for a very long time, and I suspect you know that's not entirely true.

Is it?
