    A star-studded cast of readers present unabridged tales of horror and suspense from Stephen King's classic best-selling short story collection.

    Walter says: "Great short stories!!"
    "King at his best!"
    Overall

    I originally bought these books on tape years ago and used to listen to them on my commutes, but I've since lost them and none of my cars accept tapes anymore anyway! I was thrilled to see them on audible.com and plan to download all three volumes -- some of the best short stories ever written.

    Have to disagree with the reviewer who said that "Head Down" was boring and didn't belong in this anthology. It was exciting, uplifting, and extremely well-written. The first time I heard it I was skeptical to see if King's exceptional horror writing abilities would translate well in a non-fiction story about baseball, but I was not disappointed. King could have written for Sports Illustrated....I don't know why I ever doubted him.

    Some of my other favorites include: Night Flier (great story with a great narrator who really brings out the cynicism of the protagonist), Umney's Last Case (outstanding narrator you really believe is a private eye during The Great Depression), Popsy (evil story that actually makes you root for the vampire, Joe M does a great job with it too), Dedication (Weird and almost lewd story, but well told. I love that woman's voice; she's so versatile), and It Grows On You (King's voice took some getting used to, but the descriptions in his adjectives and his allusions really make you feel like you're in Castle Rock.)

    I thoroughly enjoyed all these stories and if you stumbled upon them in your search here, I'm sure you will too. Nightmares and Dreamscapes is a MUST HAVE for any Stephen King fan!
