Four excellent novellas from the master of horror. King manages yet again to corner readers in the dark and send chills up their spines. These four stories cover everything from murder to deceit to terror to the human condition. King has mastered the art of putting a few odd characters together in a horrible situation and letting them slug their way out. He does so masterfully in his story, The Langoliers. In Secret Window, he writes about a troubled author who faces the trial of his life by going insane. In the Sun Dog, a young man gets more than he bargained for when a birthday present polaroid camera takes pictures from another dimension. In The Library Policeman, a public speaker reaps the wrath of an otherworldly librarian when he returns his books late and meets her hammer, a library policeman, face to face.
