My favourite of the short stories collections
on 11 January 2014
Maybe it's because it was the first set of his short stories I read, or maybe because it's from what I call his 'riding the crest' phase between '85 and '89 - where we would get Pet Semetary, Thinner, Eyes of the Dragon, The Gunslinger, Misery, the complete and uncut version of The Stand, and of course his Magnus opus, IT - but I think this collection is all killer, no filler. From the gruesome novella The Mist to the heartrending treatise on death and home, The Reach, it's all good. Kisses in the dark from a stranger, indeed.
