Full Dark No Stars by Stephen King

Full Dark No Stars by Stephen King

“I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger…” writes Wilfred Leland James i the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up “1922″, the first tale from Stephen King in Full Dark, No Stars. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling of the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and  the maybe a side of madness.

In “Big Driver”, a cozy-mystery writer named Tess encounters the stranger along a back road in Massachusetts when she takes a shortcut home after a book-club engagement. Violated and left for dead, Tess plots revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger – the one inside.

“Fair Extension” is probably the shortest and most fun. Making a deal with the devil not saves Dave Streeter from a fatal cancer but provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment.

When her husband of more than 20 years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable and she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and definitely ends a good marriage.

I probably don’t have to reiterate how big a fan I am of  Stephen King’s work, but for those who haven’t heard – it’s HUGE!

Stephen King delivers another great collection of stories of the macob.  Not truly horror, these stories push the boundaries of mankind. Just how far would you go if…

Stephen King’s Full Dark, No Stars is worth reading even if the title is a little odd.
