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.

This is a fantastic collection of well crafted stories. In each King attains a unique voice, creating compelling characters like the Caretaker in Mrs Todd's Shot-cut, the Two rival boys in the Raft, the unforgettable Uncle Otto in Uncle Otto's truck and more - it was the first Stephen King collection I have read and I did so as I am doing a course on writing - this taught me a lot- I am convert

Bought this as a gift for my mother as she is a very big fan of Stephen King and she absolutely loves it. It was one of the few of his books she didn’t have.

A great selection of some of Stephen King's short stories. I read this book years ago, but have enjoyed re-reading it again. Recommended.

Brilliant book of short stories. Don't start reading the longer ones at bedtime because you may find the book hard to put down.

Personally I feel that this was the best short stories book that was ever written by Stephen King. If you are looking for a short story to scare you at bedtime this would be the one.
