I loved this had read everything in it almost twice (i'm fourteen) it feels as if i just read something (almost) as epic as Douglas Adams hitchhiker series. I only checked this out because i watched quicksilver awhile ago and it had a story that was in this book (Chattery Teeth) and now i read all of the movie adapted books (with the exeption of collections and The dark tower series.) thanks stephen.

I loved this book!!!!! Out of all the stories in this book my favorite is You Know They Got A Hell of A Band. Makin a town full of dead rock stars was genius, absolute genius. Ricky Nelson, Elvis, Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly, perfect.

I thought that there was a short story titled "The Thirteenth Floor?" I know I read that story, had to been ten years or more. It was in this book, because, I checked it out of the library. Anyway since then, I havn't been able to find that story! Was it an illusion?

I have to say, i absolutely do love reading Stephen King novels. They completely make you feel like you are in another dimension, or reality all together. But i must say i does not look to good when there is a typo in a published book. If you take a look at page 358, paragraph 3 and 5 in nightmares & dreamscapes. The name Georgie is spelt wrong on paragraph 3, but is correct on paragraph 5. It's a little disappointing to see.

i love the fact that stephen had the balls to right a story like 'you know they got one hell of a band.' its the kind of story i would love to write but never would because it seems so silly. i thought it was awesome. 'sneakers' kicks ass too

This is my absolute favorite book of short stories by Stephen King. My favortie story is Dolan's Cadillac. It wasn't scary, but it got my heart racing. Perfect revenge story. The paranoia about Dolan escaping and standing behind Robinson freaked me out!! And I love that Rob Lowe read it on the audiobook. Amazing story!! One of those predictable stories, but it still kept your heart racing, hoping Dolan would get what he's got coming. You knew Robinson would succeed. But the suspence just kills you!! You knew what was going to happen...but you didint know. It was perfect in every way. Thank you so much Stephen King.

Just want to say 'Crouch End' was my fav from this collection. It has stayed with me more than the others, which were all excellent. It just genuinely scared and intrigued me, and that's the best mix. Evoked childhood fears and ideas too.

I love this collection! This was the first book I read when I was too small to remember, and I've recently reread it and enjoyed it all over again. Stephen King is definitely one of the best writers out there.

I listened to this collection originally on audio tape. I loved it! Not to mention that the chosen talents to read the stories were a great choice. Thank you!

Here's another enjoyable collection from Stephen King. I prefer his short fiction over his longer works, and this book was a worthwhile read for me. Though some stories weren't quite to my taste, several stood out for me: "The House on Maple Street," "Sneakers,""The Night Flier," "Pops,y" and "You Know They Got a Hell of a Band" was fascinating but quite frightening. My favorite in the collection has to be "Sorry, Right Number," which was both eerie and heartbreaking.

In my opinion, this is the best short story collection (Nightmares & Dreamscapes) i have ever read. It's between this or Everything's Eventual. Stephen King is a true genius behind the typewriter or computer, and i hope he keeps on doing what he's doing.

I have just read Duma Keys. I must admit it started promising, but after four hundred pages there wasn't much spooky bits. When it did get to a spooky bit, it wasn't even that spooky. I thought I was reading a book about artists and damn paintings. There were many holes in the story, and the part with the ship didn't make any sense. It was very tedious and the ending was a let down. I have been a Stephen King fan since I was a kid. I'm in my forties now, so if I make you feel old, but I loved your earlier books. The most recent ones had being dissappointing. Lisey's story was hard to read. I gave up half way. Cell was great. Very fast paced - like a horror movie, although the ending was a little let down.

I think this is Stephen King's best short story collection so far - God, I just can't wait until Just After Sunset comes out in the bookstores. I can't find a single story that is badly written. Hell, what did you expect, it's Stephen "The King" King. Love you man - you're the best writer ever :D Sebastian, from Sweden.
