It's defiantly my favorite story in Different Seasons. And that ending, wow, I loved it. I wish King had more of his stories end in a bang like that.
What I like about the end of this story is that we know it was five hours later and almost dark

before "they" took him down

But it is left to us -- as best we can and as we see fit -- to imagine the interim.

Simply delicious.

No need to be defiant! :D:)

Just bought a paper back of this - Apt Pupil plus the other three stories in Different Seasons - it was at the bank and the money goes to cancer - 2 bucks!
