by | Read by Will Patton, Stephen King

Horror • 20.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Yes, Stephen King, we like it darker--especially when Will Patton narrates the 12 new stories in this audiobook. Patton's usually soft voice explodes with excitement when necessary. Some of the entries from the lengthy collection are crime related, and there's not a single vampire, alien or werewolf to be found. Others are typical King horror fests. "Danny Coughlin's Bad Dream," is a 68-chapter novella that dwarfs the rest of the bite-sized works. In it, a humble janitor has a prophetic dream about a murder that he dutifully, though surreptitiously, reports to police and ends up the suspect. "On The Side of the Road," about a family accosted by killers they meet in the woods, is a brief nod to the wisdom of the elderly. And "Rattlesnakes" is a bit of a sequel to CUJO.
