Quotes & Awards

  • “An illusionist extraordinaire, King peoples all his fiction, long and short, with believable characters. The power of this collection lies in the amazing richness of his fevered imagination—he just can’t be stopped from coming up with haunting plots.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This may be the most suspenseful and moving writing he’s ever done.” 


  • “In this short story collection Stephen King shows his versatility as a writer. This collection contains, among other things, a ghost, the undead, a finger poking out of a bathroom drain, a set of chattery teeth which run amuck, and a plan to mellow out the whole world. In other words, great fun for King fans.” 


Listener Opinions

    " This is a twisted set of short stories that was marvelous. I still see some of the images that I saw while reading stories like 'Crouch End' and 'Suffer the little children'. He really went to a dark place on this one. I think Mr.King is always a good novelist and sometimes a good horrorist. This time he hit both nails on the head. "

    " Some were good stories, some were ehh... "

    " Being published in the 90s this third story collection by King proves my point that King spent that decade taking chances. In this massive tome these tales of terror (and a few sweet ones) showcase King as a writer who will write anything he can dream up or is told to by his inner characters. I love the chances he takes, especially with "Dedication": a story so elegantly written but disgusting too. As wide ranged as any of his other collection, this one just goes for entertainement first and I liked that. As a teen and early twenty-something I learned how to have fun as a writer reading these stories. King taught me that I can take my job seriously as an author but that the art can produce what you want it to: fun, blood, guts and gore. "Chattery Teeth" is one of personal favorites because the story just happens. No explanation needed or given - just for the hell of it. "Popsy" caught me off guard whereas "The Night Flier" I fell for right away. "You Know They Got a Hell of a Band" and "Rainy Season" proved to me it is how they story is told not the cliched story itself of the strange little town. These tales felt more Creepshow than ever and even with some beautiful homages and a non-fiction treat the collection justs busts with hilarious, haunting corkers. Unlike the elegance of Skeleton Crew or Just After Sunset, Nightmares and Dreamscapes acheives just what its title states...and that is all that is required sometimes. "

    " I like the latter half of the book more than the former. The last three stories and the essay were the hits!!! Hoping to read more Stephen King! "
