Roadwork * Stephen King short story

Only Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, can imagine the horror of a good and angry man who fights back against bureaucracy when it threatens to destroy his vitality, home, and memories. It reminded me a lot of The Running Man where the guy sticks it to the system grand style and goes down in flames.… Continue reading Roadwork * Stephen King short story

The man in the black coat * Stephen King Short Story

A man in his eighties should be well past the terrors of childhood, but as my infirmities slowly creep up on me, like waves licking closer and closer to some indifferently built castle of sand, that terrible face grows clearer and clearer in my mind’s eye. It glows like a dark star in the constellations… Continue reading The man in the black coat * Stephen King Short Story

The Tommyknockers * Stephen King’s Green Light UFO

I wanna go out, don't know if I can 'cuz I'm so afraid of the tommyknocker man.” Like many of the Mother Goose rhymes, the verse about the Tommyknockers is deceptively simple. The origin of the word is difficult to trace. Webster's… Continue reading The Tommyknockers * Stephen King’s Green Light UFO

Stephen King * Thinner

Thinner is about a fat man who is cursed by a gypsy and loses weight. If that’s all there was to it I’m sure we’d all be running out to find ourselves a Romany, but that’s not how curses work. Billy Halleck, the fat man, can’t stop losing weight and it’s going to kill him. “Some… Continue reading Stephen King * Thinner

Stephen King * 11/22/63 Book review

I must say I love this book. It's hefty in size but unlike Under the dome, Insomnia or Needful Things, it wasn't filled with unnecessary description of people and places but filled with stories about life and change. And in the middle of it, the question: If you were able to change history, would you do… Continue reading Stephen King * 11/22/63 Book review
