Nightmares and Dreamscapes by Stephen King

I recently finished the Dark Tower series, which is mostly fantasy rather than horror, so I had forgotten how utterly creepy Stephen King’s imagination can be. I had been of the opinion that King peaked in the 80’s and had lost his touch since then, but this collection of stories has forced me to revise that opinion somewhat. Some of these stories really creeped me out, but all of them were seriously entertaining. King has never yet produced a single work of fiction with serious literary merit, a fact of which he himself is all too aware, but his ability to spin an enthralling story is unsurpassed. These stories won’t give you much to think about…but they just might make you sleep with the lights on.
