"A master storyteller at his best--the O. Henry Prize winner Stephen King delivers a generous collection of stories, several of them brand-new, featuring revelatory autobiographical comments on when, why, and how he came to write (or rewrite) each story. Since his first collection, Nightshift, published thirty-five years ago, Stephen King has dazzled readers with his genius as a writer of short fiction. In this new collection he assembles, for the first time, recent stories that have never been published in a book. He introduces each with a passage about its origins or his motivations for writing it. There are thrilling connections between stories; themes of morality, the afterlife, guilt, what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the mistakes of the past. "Afterlife" is about a man who died of colon cancer and keeps reliving the same life, repeating his mistakes over and over again. Several stories feature characters at the end of life, revisiting their crimes and misdemeanors. Other stories address what happens when someone discovers that he has supernatural powers--the columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries in "Obits;" the old judge in "The Dune" who, as a boy, canoed to a deserted island and saw names written in the sand, the names of people who then died in freak accidents. In "Morality," King looks at how a marriage and two lives fall apart after the wife and husband enter into what seems, at first, a devil's pact they can win. Magnificent, eerie, utterly compelling, these stories comprise one of King's finest gifts to his constant reader--"I made them especially for you," says King. "Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.""--… (mehr)

First of all, and most importantly, if you don't yet know, this collection contains a story loosely connected to [The Dark Tower] series. The new entry into the vastly interconnected world is called Ur, and it's one of the best in the collection. Get this book for that reason alone. But if you need more incentive, every story is preceded by a lengthy note from Uncle Stevie on the concepts or origin of the story. That kind of stuff is a hook for us Constant Readers. The only negative thing to say - Uncle Stevie is not a poet, except for that one ditty he penned for [It], maybe. The shorts are worth coming for alone - but there's so much more to sink your teeth into here, if you can before the stories sink their teeth into you.

The Dune, The Little Green God of Agony and Afterlife were my favs of the bunch but I wouldn't read any of them again.
-----------

Actually already re-read The Dune. I like that one.

Mile 81 3* - Classic Stephen King style story. Looks like an ordinary mud covered car but nope it's a people eater.

Ur 3* - Guy gets pink Kindle that belongs to him in a parallel universe. He can do searches and read stories by authors who died here but not there.
Reads about a bus accident his GF is on. Tries to make the accident not happen. He is successful but gets his Kindle taken away


Bad Little Kid 3.5* - A man on death row tells his lawyer why he killed the kid. Slow reveal about all that has happened and instigated by the bad little kid.
In the end he trapped him and shot him like six times. Warns the lawyer to watch out for him after he is put to death. Lawyer finds the bad little boy's hat on his car seat after leaving the execution


A Death 3* Free here:https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/03/09/a-death-stephen-king I dread the day I have to be on a jury because I am so gullible. This story involves a man accused of a crime and the struggle to believe his cries of innocence or trust the weak evidence against him. Kind of like Dead Man Walking, where we know the final answer by the end of the story but we go both ways, innocent/guilty throughout the whole movie.

Blockade Billy 3* - Team missing a catcher. They call up a young player who can be a temp while they find a permanent player. He is a good player but there are
a couple of questionable injuries to the opposing team. ex ankle of the batter is cut. We find out that the real temp was murdered along with his parents and cows and the hired help showed up in his place.


Drunken Fireworks 2* - Firework battle across the water/river between neighbors.
Ended with one special firework that turned into an UFO maybe. Was bored so not paying full attention


Premium Harmony 3*
Batman and Robin Have an Altercation 3*
The Dune 4*
The Bone Church 1*
Morality 3*
Afterlife 3.5*
Herman Wouk is Still Alive 2*
Under the Weather 2*
Mister Yummy 3*
Tommy 2*
The Little Green God of Agony 4*
That Bus is Another World 3*
Obits 3*
Summer Thunder 2* ( )

I love Stephen King’s short stories - they are always such a pleasure to read and I really love the fact that they’re basically mini Stephen King books that can be enjoyed during a lunch break - or - if you’re brave, right before bed.

What I Liked:

I love the fact that Stephen King introduces each story and gives it a little background

Ur was by far my favorite story - 1. It connects to the Dark Tower 2. An ereader that has access to all the books from ALL the worlds?!?! - Um, yes please.

Obits was also a really great story and reminded me a lot of “Everything’s Eventual” which was my favorite story in “Everything’s Eventual”

Ok - so basically i really just loved all the stories

What I Didn’t Like

Why weren’t there more stories?

So yeah - all in all I am never disappointed in Stephen King short story collections - they’re always great reads!

The Bazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King

A fantastic collection of short stories. Each has it's own theme. Some intense, thrilling, mind boggling and thought provoking, but all very good. I also enjoyed the introduction to each story, as he explained what motivated him to write (each) story. It was very interesting to get into the mind of my favorite Author. I highly recommend The Bazaar of Bad Dreams to fans of Stephen King and those who enjoy the Bazaar. ( )
