Weaker than predecessors
Just After Sunset: Stories - Stephen King

A weaker read for me than his other short-story collections on the whole. N. is spectacular, though.

 

Willa: OK sentimental ghost story

The Gingerbread Girl: Good thriller

Harvey's Dream: Now we are talking. For extra kick, which one was?

Rest Stop: Awesomesauce!

Stationary Bike: If not writing, then images. And addictions. I love how he has his "go to" obsessive mind-itches that he always comes back to write about.

The things they left behind: I liked bits and pieces *shrug* I tend to avoid lit on the topic

Graduation Afternoon: Vignette building for that last snapshot. Meh

N. : This one was freaky scary. Likely because we all are little OCD. Best one in the book.

The Cat from Hell: Liked this one, and that gruesome end!

The New York Times at special bargain rates: Liked the idea. Sweet and sad.

Mute: I found this one funny in a bewildering way.

Ayana: People passing it on. A lovely concept. 

A very tight place: It was good. And gross (so very gross). And good.

“Have you ever read ‘The Great God Pan,’ by Arthur Machen?”

“It’s the most terrifying story ever written,”

 

Damn it, King! Stop adding to my tbr!

I had this one slotted for my supernatural square, and it'll likely fit, but I might shuffle things a bit.

 

I'm starting the third story, but so far it would fit

Gwendy's Button Box
Gwendy's Button Box - Stephen King,Richard Chizmar
He had been watching her yet, all she was concerned about was whether she made it to the top of Castle View. She needed to lose some weight, she was not starting middle school with the name Goodyear, the blimp could have its name back. When Richard approached Gwendy, she hesitated. Holding a box in his hand, Richard was sure what he was about to give her, would change her life. As Gwendy listens to Richard explain the box’s magic, I could feel the excitement and uncertainty that Gwendy was feeling, it all seemed too easy and worrisome.
 
The box worked it magic for Gwendy, a few times she was frightened by how powerful this box actually was. Her best friend becomes a shadow as Gwendy accepts her new power and runs with it. She is everything she wanted to be and more, but was this what she really wanted?
 
I thought this was a fantastic, short novel and I liked the pace, the storyline and the characters. It was the anticipation of Gwendy’s future with the box that kept me transfixed to this novel. Her curiosity, her future and her situation was centered around the box, the box that could change her, if she wanted.
