Amazon Best Books of the Month, November 2010: When a master of horror and heebie-jeebies like Stephen King calls his book Full Dark, No Stars, you know you’re in for a treat--that is, if your idea of a good time is spent curled up in a ball wondering why-oh-why you started reading after dark. King fans (and those who have always wanted to give him a shot) will devour this collection of campfire tales where marriages sway under the weight of pitch-black secrets, greed and guilt poison and fester, and the only thing you can count on is that "there are always worse things waiting." Full Dark, No Stars features four one-sitting yarns showcasing King at his gritty, gruesome, giddy best, so be sure to check under the bed before getting started. --Daphne Durham --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

“Just as gripping as his epic novels.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I thought this book was great. The stories were mean, much like the way he wrote long ago. I hope his next one will be just as good. Easily his best in a long while.Published on April 20 2011 by JRD
