Summary
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 Night Shift, Stephen King's first collection, was published thirty-five years ago, he has dazzled audiences with his genius as a writer of short fiction. King assembles twenty stories in this new collection, some of which have never appeared in print, introducing 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. The stories in The Bazaar of Bad Dreams comprise one of King's finest gifts to his Constant Listener: "I made them especially for you," says King. "Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth." -- Provided by publisher, taken from container
