Nightmares & Dreamscapes (Stephen King)

A collection of short stories, several being published for the first time, offers a spine-tingling journey to the nightmare world created by a master of sheer terror and grotesque imagination.

Found this book at my family's home back when I went back for Raya last year and to be honest I'm not a great fan of Stephen King though I did read a few books from him. This book is a collection of short stories (some never published before) in 1983 and was even made into 8 episodes mini series for television. 

Below are the stories featured in this book:

1 Dolan's Cadillac   (Castle Rock, February—June 1985)
2 The End of the Whole Mess   (October 1986 issue of Omni)
3 Suffer the Little Children   (February 1972 issue of Cavalier)
4 The Night Flier   (Prime Evil - 1988)
5 Popsy (Masques II - 1987)
6 It Grows on You    (Fall 1973 issue of Marshroots)
7 Chattery Teeth    (Fall 1992 issue of Cemetery Dance)
8 Dedication  (Night Visions 5 - 1988)
9 The Moving Finger   (December 1990 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction)
10 Sneakers   (Night Visions 5 - 1988)
11 You Know They Got a Hell of a Band (Shock Rock - 1992)
12 Home Delivery (Book of the Dead -1989)
13 Rainy Season (Spring 1989 issue of Midnight Graffiti)
14 My Pretty Pony (My Pretty Pony limited edition coffee table book - 1989)
14 Sorry, Right Number (Previously unpublished)
15 The Ten O'Clock People (Previously unpublished)
16 Crouch End (New Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos - 1980)
17 The House on Maple Street (Previously unpublished)
18 The Fifth Quarter (April 1972 issue of Cavalier)
19 The Doctor's Case (The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - 1987)
20 Umney's Last Case (Previously unpublished)
21 Head Down (April 16, 1990 issue of The New Yorker)
22 Brooklyn August (Io #10, 1971)
23 The Beggar and the Diamond (Previously unpublished)

As with all other Stephen King novels, these short stories are tales related to supernaturals and thriller, if not actually ghost stories and they are certainly interesting if you like the genre.

As for me, I have not read past 10 pages yet since I find them boring.
