How King can take something like stars and moons drawn on a hopscotch grid and make them so disturbing is proof of his exceptional talent. I really enjoyed this book, especially the first story "Low men in yellow coats". As a fan of the "Dark Tower" series, it was good to read a bit more from it. It's a shame that a lot of people won't read a king book because they "don't like horror". They should try this book and see how King can effortlessly slip between genres and still deliver a brilliant read.
