I'll put my hands up. I'm a big fan of King's short stories.

 

This is more of the same - a mixed bag - but very much reflects the time they were written. COVID is mentioned in every tale.  

Some are straightforward, some are ambiguous, some I really don't understand the ending 😀.

 

There's dead babies, 10 foot alligators, plane crashes, nods to Invasion Of The Bodysnatchers, dead women in wells, extra-terrestrial interventions, child kidnappings.... Just your usual walk in the park with Stephen really.

 

Recommended, obviously.

I must admit I prefer Dean Koontz to King but, Tommy Knockers, Pet Seminary and IT, were superb.
