Published: Berkley - October 1st, 1998

From its blunt blood-soaked opening story to its sad and dark conclusion, this anthology is packed with some of horror's greatest achievements. Strange, brooding, and always unique, Barker sends us on a dark odyssey that encompasses the vastness of his genre's complex landscape—carnage, psychology, and the surreal are all on display here. The highlight might be, In the Hills, the Cities, which seems to balance this strange scale of horror with considerable ease. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell

Seeking the roots of society's fascination and obsession with horror, Poole lands on World War I. The unimaginable carnage and obliteration of life wrought by that war, according to Poole, impacted artists in their creation of horror novels and films, and, more dangerously, infected cultures, breeding Nazism, totalitarianism, and fascism. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

The police and the district attorney are certain they have got their man after a local teacher's fingerprints and DNA connect him to the vicious killing of an 11-year-old boy. The problem is that the suspect has irrefutable proof he was somewhere else at the time of the murder. What begins as a dark mystery drifts into territory that Mr. King has expertly traversed for a long time. Compulsively readable and as unnerving as an extended stay at the Overlook. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

A riveting tale of wrongful imprisonment, dark struggles, and sacrifice. A Death Row inmate shares his mysterious gift with the guards meant to oversee his eventual execution. King weaves a tale of characters in constant struggle with themselves, as well as madness, and the evil that men do to each other. One of my favorite Stephen King stories. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell

Published: Scribner - March 29th, 2016

Four novellas containing some of King's finest work—Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption and The Body (aka Stand By Me), boasting deep and engrossing tales which stray away from King's horror roots and off into a variety of literary fields such as coming-of-age, thriller and crime fiction. Some relay characters who reach a sort of breaking point, some end well while others, well—don't. Some are peculiar and a little surreal, but never overstepping. Each story feels deep and personal with subtle moments where characters get in touch with themselves and the strange journeys they're on. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell
