Recommended for: short story lovers, Stephen King fans
Read in July, 2008

I found this book to be hit or miss. Most stories were good with a few being must-reads and few being skip-able.

The highlights:
Jerusalem's Lot - A prequel of sorts to his novel 'Salem's Lot told through a series of letters.
Night Surf - A side-story that fits in with The Stand telling the story of a few teens as they deal with Trips.
I Am The Doorway - A more traditional science-fiction tale with a Stephen King twist.
I Know What You Need - A psychologically introspective story concerning love.
The Last Rung on the Ladder - A story of guilt.
One for the Road - Another story dealing with 'Salem's Lot this one being a sequel.
The Woman in the Room - Tough love from a son to an elderly mother.

Of note:
Trucks - Made into the B-Movie Maximum Overdrive.
Children of the Corn - Read it if you want the real story.
The Lawnmower Man - Nothing like the movie (which is why King sued the filmmakers)
