    " This was one of his better short story compilations. Most of the stories were really good, creepy, scared the poo out of me or a combination of all three! Not a keeper, but that's due to lack of room on my shelves more than anything else. I'm definitely glad I read it. "

    " Read some of it, but it's shelfed for now until I have time to come back to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Amy Orton | 2/15/2014

    " A nice diverse mixture of stories. I found myself reading each of the 14 in a single sitting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Xander | 2/6/2014

    " I only read two of the stories in this collection and this review is only going to focus on one--The Little Sisters of Eluria (though 1408 was effectively creepy). This tale works as an addition to the world of the Dark Tower. There wasn't much action in it, and Roland is the only familiar character, but it was still good storytelling and quite satisfying. "
