Short Stories. 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.
This collection includes 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 . . .
"Stephen King is an author who writes well (a feat that is not as common as one would suppose). He writes a wide variety of fiction (mystery, general fiction, horror, terror, humour) all of which is of quality. Of all his work, I enjoy his short fiction the best. This collection is an excellent example of the breadth of his talent. I still hold that his talent and popularity has allowed his work to not be as well edited as it needs to be, but short fiction is "tighter" and requires the writer to be more precise in his word selection." - Google Review.
