Nightmares & Dreamscapes - Stephen King

enjoyed both ‘Home Delivery’ and ‘Rainy Season’ - zombies and toads with sharp teeth, respectively. somewhere, a handful of stories back, this turned into a collection I love going back to. at first, it seemed like it might be merely a dumping ground for King’s forgotten, short-story leftovers, and “stashed in a drawer” mediocre misfits, but overall it has stepped up its game, and though I wouldn’t say I’m traipsing through classic and highly original masterpieces, I would say more and more of these stories are perfect October reads, that are making up for the fact that I’m apparently not going to be reading a lot of Horror novels this Halloween season, but Crime & Mystery instead, plus some Fantasy picks.
