The Boogeyman: Another good and creepy tale. I didn't feel much sympathy for the rather unpleasant protagonist.
The Man who loved Flowers: Short and with an ending that I wasn't expecting, though in hindsight the clues are there.
Jerusalem's Lot: Effectively told through letters and journal entries. I thought King built up a nicely oppressive and eerie atmosphere, and managed to sustain it to the end. Good scene when the creatures are confronted in the cellar.
The Mangler: Very good except for the ending. I squirmed at King's description of the guy getting his arm ripped off.
Apparently this had a basis in reality. When the TV miniseries version of The Shining originally aired, the TV station that aired it where I live sent a reporter to Maine to film "Stephen's Kingdom" segments to air during the 11:00 news on those three nights. One of the places the reporter visited was an industrial laundry where Stephen King worked when he was a college student. The man that was interviewed said that someone lost an arm to the flatwork ironer while King was working there.
Oct 29. Very probably the first single author anthology I ever read, and a useful introduction to the short story and how it works. Managed to fit in two favourites, Jerusalem's Lot which I can now see is an H P Lovecraft tribute act, but still works brilliantly as a marvellous horror story in it's own right. King does period horror very well. Children Of The Corn. Always loved this one. Even rushed to the cinema back in the 80s to see the big screen version despite reviews that quite rightly gave it a kicking as it gave away the mystery of the deserted Gatlin right at the start. Superb story.
