The Stephen King Amusement Park - an unnerving experience, with rides every wich way to hell... and a few to glory.
A solitary finger pokes out of a drain. Novelty teeth turn predatory. The Nevada desert swallows a Cadillac. Meanwhile, the legend of Castle Rock returns... and grows on you. What does it all mean? What else could it mean? Stephen King is back with a powerful new collection of stories - a vast, many-chambered cave of a volume.
In story after story, the long reach of Stephen King's imagination and the no-holds-barred force of his storytelling will take you to places you've never been before. On a roller-coaster through the macabre and monstrous, via cutting-edge explorations of good and evil - and on to a hearfelt piece on Little League baseball.
You will lose a good deal of sleep. But Stephen King, writing to beat the devil, will do your dreaming for you...

The story of how the Nevada desert swallows a whole grey Cadillac with its owner Dolan a...
Bardzo nierówny zbiór. Były w nim teksty tak nudne i nieprawdopodobne, że niemal nie dało się ich czytać, ale znalazłem też kilka perełek, które moim skromnym zdaniem zasłużyły na miano znakomitych, a nawet genialnych! Styl i warsztat pisarski oczywiście godny pochwalenia, jak to zazwyczaj bywa u Mi...
whoo - on the day dear Patrik shows me his Lord of the Rings figurines, I read this...
These stories I didn't much like. Didn't like at all. Didn't devote any brain space to remembering, either. It would seem that I have utterly forgotten more books than most people will ever read. That's sad on so many levels.
