Scrupulous title
Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King
  • 1922: Three quotes to define it:

 

"And is there Hell, or do we make our own on earth?"

"The dead don't stop"

“Poison spreads like ink in water.”

 

  • Big Driver: The post reaction was full truth, from the confusion, pain, wound-licking, hiding, weighting paths, shying from the future shame to rage and wanting to get back, all the steps. The gun-totting revenge a real pipe-dream.

 

  • Fair Extension:

"This isn’t some half-assed morality tale."

Said the devil.

 

  • Good Marriage: Holy Molly, this one was disturbing and twisted and awesome. My favorite of the collection.

I’m a businessman now, but at one time I was a humble salary-man. Got fired before striking out on my own.

 

*snicker* Well, that's one way of putting it (since I'm pretty sure it's the devil spouting the line).

 

I'm leaving my thoughts on Big Driver for later (personal trigger special, yay!)

Wow... That was disturbing on all levels, start to finish. Full dark indeed.

 

Two bits on this novella are what I'm thinking on, but I'm too lazy to find the quotes: That we make our own hell right here; and that the dead don't stop.

Hah! Of course! 1930! Depression! Dust bowl! How did I miss the context part most relevant! This is... I don't know if poetic justice quite applies, but... *mad cackle*

Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King

“I can put her name and description out on the telegraph wire, if you want. She won’t have gone no further than Omaha, will she? Not on just a hundred and eighty smackers. And a woman who’s spent most of her life keepin’ house has no idea of how to hide out. She’ll like as not be in a rooming house over on the east side, where they run cheap. I could have her brought back. Dragged back by the hair of the head, if you want.”
“That’s a generous offer, but—”
The dull gray eyes surveyed me. “Think it over before you say yea or nay. Sometimes a fee-male needs talking to by hand, if you take my meaning, and after that they’re all right. A good whacking has a way of sweetening some gals up. Think it over.”

 

That's the Sheriff. Charming time to live on being a woman, huh?
