The stories in editor Martin H. Greenberg's collection are probably better than what you'd expect from something called "Freddy Krueger's
Seven Sweetest Dreams." To be fair, this sort of book appeals to a very specific fan, one who enjoys slasher movies, reading, and possibly reading slasher stories. It's hard to imagine a casual horror fan or reader picking up a book based on the "Nightmare On Elm St." series. And so, this book was written specifically with fans in mind, which is great.

I bought this book back when Freddy ruled the big screen (and the small screen, if you include the short-lived TV series).

The stories are a good for a creepy read; just before bedtime.

Picked this book up for the story Dead Highway, Lost Roads written by Philip Nutman. Enjoyed it quite a bit... Let's face it Alice from Nightmare 4 is in it. Loved it.

It's a compliation.

So some stories are good and some are bad, some authors know who Freddy is and some barely researched enough to write a few pages' tale. The book is worth buying for Fred Heads based purely on the stories by those who got it right.

'Asleep At The Wheel' is a particular stand out.
