Book Description

June 30 2009
For the first time on CD! Vintage Stephen King at a great low price!

Stephen King's unparalleled imagination is in full force in this collection of four unabridged short stories originally found in the classic, Nightmares & Dreamscapes. Stephen King and an all-star cast of readers bring to life these timeless stories from the darkest places.

Mysterious machinery begins to take over The House on Maple Street. A private detective finds out that he is merely the character in crime novel in Umney's Last Case. In the non-fiction piece Head Down, King chronicles the 1989 season of his son Owen's little league baseball team and their journey to the Maine State Championships. And as a companion to Head Down, Brooklyn August takes a nostalgic look back on the glory days of professional baseball.

Stephen King, Tabitha King, Robert Parker, and Stephen J. Gould lend their voices to this haunting collection of classic stories that no Stephen King fan should be without.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stephen and his wife tell the tales Sept. 14 2009

For a road trip, there is nothing like a good book.... on audio. Stephen and his wife, and other narrators, read the text with the appropriate nuances.... excellent product.
And no one else can scare the heck out of you like Stephen King!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what you might be expecting April 18 2011
By A. Sharp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I liked this collection but if you are looking for horror and horror only, this is not the right collection for you. Tabitha King does a beautiful job reading the title story, which is very creepy, and the story about the 30s detective is also very well read by Robert Parker (but whatever you do, don't read the copy on the back of the box because it gives away the ending! Is no one paying attention? It's like turning to the back of the "Sixth Sense" DVD box and reading, "A therapist treats a little boy who sees dead people only to learn that he himself is dead."). My favorite piece was the only one Stephen King reads himself but it is not a horror story; it's not even a fictional short story. It's a beautiful, almost play-by-play account of a series of play-off games involving his son's Little League team. The writing doesn't get any better than this, it's very lyrical and emotional, and King reads it beautifully, but be sure this is what you want before you buy this collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stephen King April 16 2010
By B. Brents - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As usual, I loved this book, but then again - I really love Stephen King. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because the last two CDs are an essay that King wrote about his son's little league season. I personally liked it, but if you are looking for typical Stephen King, then you may not like this one as much.

I would definately recommend buying it to any Stephen King fan. Also, the price is very good for a 5 CD set.

this is NOT your typical King fare. soooooo not good. they should pay you to read it. It was packaged well and shipped promptly. however, it reads like it's more for children than adults. must be some of his stuff that didn't sell once upon a time.

2.0 out of 5 stars boring June 27 2013
By Rosie Ceaser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD audio book was so boring. The first 3 cds were ok. But the last 2 were filled with 12 yr old Little League baseball game. I was so very bored. I had no idea what that was even on there for. So, his kid won state, that is great for him, but do not bore us with all the little details. It drug on and on. I am so sorry I spent good money for the CD audio book. I wish I would have known. I would never have ordered it. Do not waste your money.
