"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. In this new collection he assembles, for the first time, 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, revisiting their crimes and misdemeanors. Other stories address what happens when someone discovers that he has supernatural powers--the columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries in "Obits;" the old judge in "The Dune" who, as a boy, canoed to a deserted island and saw names written in the sand, the names of people who then died in freak accidents. In "Morality," King looks at how a marriage and two lives fall apart after the wife and husband enter into what seems, at first, a devil's pact they can win. Magnificent, eerie, utterly compelling, these stories comprise one of King's finest gifts to his constant reader--"I made them especially for you," says King. "Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.""--… (lisätietoja)

Stephen King has a certain charm, winning you over not with his prose—which is just okay at best—but with the heart and soul of his stories.

I liked almost all of the stories in this collection, especially the ones that dealt with everyday life in its most banal form. King shines when his characters are people like you and me, facing things me and you would probably face. He infuses the daily with the extranormal, making it almost as if we’re looking through a slightly distorted mirror at ourselves.

But hey, we have the supernatural stories too. And they’re fantastically out there, mixed with the Americana that we have all come to know and love.

Keep on writing, you brilliant bastard. I look forward to more amazing short stories from you. ( )

I don't know which I liked more about this book, the stories, or King's stories behind the stories. As both a fan of King and a writer of horror myself, this lifting of the curtain provided a fascinating glimpse into the mind of the most popular writer of our generation. In fact, in some ways, I almost consider this a semi-sequel to [b:On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft|10569|On Writing A Memoir of the Craft|Stephen King|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1436735207s/10569.jpg|150292].

But the stories...ah, the stories. A couple left me cold (Bad Little Kid, Afterlife), as is to be expected in any collection. Some I'd read previously, (Ur, Blockade Billy, Morality, Mile 81, etc.). But then, some absolutely hit the bull's eye for me. Batman and Robin Have an Altercation, Mr. Yummy, That Bus Is Another World, Obits.

And then there were two that just knocked it out of the park for me, and these are the ones that reignited the feeling I had as an early teen, digging into those first Stephen King novels and having my mind blown. The first was Herman Wouk Is Still Alive, an absolutely heartbreaking tale of the people that America tends to forget, or pretend don't exist, and the very last story, Summer Thunder, a very quiet--and very disquieting--tale of the end of the world. This last one took me back to Night Shift's Night Surf.

I love King's novels, and often, the longer the better. But it's collections like these that remind me of what a master of the short story and novella he really is.

Damn, I love this guy's writing. ( )

The Dune, The Little Green God of Agony and Afterlife were my favs of the bunch but I wouldn't read any of them again. ETA: Actually, already re-read The Dune. I like that one.

I dread the day I have to be on a jury because I am so gullible. This story involves a man accused of a crime and the struggle to believe his cries of innocence or trust the weak evidence against him. Kind of like Dead Man Walking, where we know the final answer by the end of the story but we go both ways, innocent/guilty throughout the whole movie.

What to say about Stephen King? The man can write. Really, really write. You forget the words are there and you see the story unfold around you kind of writing. But man, the stories he chooses to tell with that gift are not up to the same standard. This was an interesting vignette, the perfect length for what it is, wonderfully written for what it is, but I can't say I cared. An enjoyable five minute read. I just wish he'd unleash that gift on a story really worth telling. ( )
  amyotheramy | May 11, 2021 |
I never describe myself as a big Stephen King fan but I do really like the guy, even when he's giving me something that feels like a pile of unrelated scraps. Some of King's short story collections have been fantastic but in general he's a writer that needs space to get to where he's going and his short stories can be hit or miss because of that. So this collection had some good pieces (the last one made me cry) but most were just okay, which for King isn't great. The thing that almost made me bump this up to a four was actually his sections at the beginning of each story where he told us a little about what led to that story. King can talk about the process better than mostly anybody and that's makes sense because the guy is prolific as all hell. When he dies they'll be pulling stories out from underneath his mattress for years. ( )
