Now in a mass-market paperback premium edition—the instant #1 New York Times bestseller! Stephen King delivers an “outstanding” (USA TODAY) collection of stories, featuring revelatory autobiographical comments on when, why, and how he came to write (or rewrite) each story.“I’ve made some things for you, Constant Reader. …Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.” Since Nightshift, published thirty-five years ago, Stephen King has dazzled an entire generation of readers with his genius as a prominent writer of short fiction. Now in his latest collection, he once again assembles a generous array of unforgettable, tantalizing tales—including those that, until recently, have never been published in a book (such as the story “Cookie Jar,” which is exclusive to this edition). There are thrilling connections between these works—themes of mortality, the afterlife, guilt, and what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the mistakes of the past. Magnificent, eerie, and utterly compelling, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams is one of Stephen King’s finest gifts to readers everywhere—a master storyteller at his very best.

A short story collection from Stephen King.There was nothing technically wrong with the stories contained inside this collection. What was wrong was my expectations of the kind of stories I’d be reading. A lot of them were character driven, and the stories felt flat to me. Herman Wouk is still Alive...
Leider zu viele Stories dabei, die allerhöchstens egal bis langweilig sind. Auf echte Highlights habe ich vergebens gehofft, insgesamt ist diese Sammlung für mich eher enttäuschend. Von Herrn König erwarte ich deutlich mehr.
There is a lovely story that the author tells towards the end of this excellent collection when he is approached by a lady in a supermarket who declares: You're Stephen King. You write those scary stories." SK would dispute this..."Yes I like horror stories. I also love mysteries, tales of suspense,...
I some how have missed Stephen King which seems a little bit odd to me but then again as a kid the idea of It horrified me. But I finally picked up this because I wasn't sure where to start of if I'd even like his style. Overall I really like it, though there were some that were good but just a bit ...
