The main story involves a world gone mad where everyone has gone insane and has started killing each other and the few people unaffected need to work to stay together and work out what they have in common which keeps them from going insane too. This is one of those stories where you wish it was longer as you really start to get involved in the world when it ends. After this main story is four short stories (Without You, I Am An Exit, This Is Not An Exit, and 'The King', In: YELLOW) containing murder, suicide and dead rock stars.
The collection of stories is solid, with plenty of story and gore to please any horror fan; but like I've mentioned if you are a Keene fan then some will be familiar to you but these stories are well worth re-reading; and if your new to Keene then this will show you what he is capable of.
********"Jack's Magic Beans" is comprised of one novelette and four short stories, see customer images for a complete listing of this booklet's contents. The first, and best, story is 'Jack's Magic Beans', and it's also part of Keene's ongoing complex multiverse that has involved so many of his novels.
One ordinary day everything goes to hell when a young man at a Save-A-Lot decides to kick to death an old lady, he is in turn impaled on a mop handle, then that man is murdered, and so the slaughter commences as the murder frenzy goes into high gear. And while not everybody is effected, only those quick on their toes escape being chopped up into fish bait.
As it happens, only four people are quick enough to avoid a bloody and horrible death. They are Marcel Dupree, an obsessive compulsive; Sammi Barberra, a bulimic; and Angela "Angie" Waller and Jack Bartlett who are both depressives. They escape immolation by barricading themselves in the store's walk-in freezer.Read more ›
