{Read E-pub} Ï Just After Sunset ⛅ Just after sunset call it dusk call it twilight it s a time when human life takes on an unnatural cast, when nothing is quite as it appears, when the imagination begins to reach for shadows as they dissipate to darkness and living daylight can be scared right out of you Who but Stephen King would turn a Port O San into a slimy birth canal, or a roadside honky tonk into a place for endless love A book salesman with a grievance might pick up a mute hitchhiker, not knowing the silent man in the passenger seat listens altogether too well Or an exercise routine on a stationary bicycle, begun to reduce bad cholesterol, might take its rider on a captivating and then terrifying journey Set on a remote key in Florida, The Gingerbread Girl is a riveting tale featuring a young woman as vulnerable and resourceful as Audrey Hepburn s character in Wait Until Dark In Ayana, a blind girl works a miracle with a kiss and the touch of her hand For King, the line between the living and the dead is often blurry, and the seams that hold our reality intact might tear apart at any moment In one of the longer stories here, N which recently broke new ground when it was adapted as a graphic digital entertainment, a psychiatric patient s irrational thinking might create an apocalyptic threat in the Maine countrysideor keep the world from falling victim to it

    Willa After a train derails leaving its passengers stranded, David Sanderson s wife wanders away from the station and he goes looking for her.On the surface, this was a tale of people who don t realize that they re ghosts dealing with their fate Beneath, I think it s about how time slips away and the deeper the rut you get into, the harder it is to get out and do something new His Kingship picked a good tale to start the collection with.Gingerbread Girl After leaving her husband, Emily tak Willa After a train derails leaving its passengers stranded, David Sanderson s wife wanders away from the station and he goes looking for her.On the surface, this was a tale of people who don t realize that they re ghosts dealing with their fate Beneath, I think it s about how time slips away and the deeper the rut you get into, the harder it is to get out and do something new His Kingship picked a good tale to start the collection with.Ging...

    The anthology is a bit of a mixed bag It starts with Willa a story I liked least not a very good beginning , Gingerbread Girl was far better but also not fully convincing, Harvey s Dream a bit confusing but ok, Rest Stop really good, Stationary Bike ok, The Things They Left Behind interesting but not my cup of Tea, Graduation Afternoon nice with a serious undercurrent, N the best story in here, very uncanny, very Machen Lovecraft, a real highlight, The Cat From Hell , even ap The anthology is a bit of a mixed bag It starts with Willa a story I liked least not a very good beginning , Gingerbread Girl was far better but also not fully convincing, Harvey s Dream a bit confusing but ok, Rest Stop really good, Stationary Bike ok, The Things They Left Behind interesting but not my cup of Tea, Graduation Afternoon nice with a serious undercurrent, N the best story in here, very uncanny, very Machen Lovecraft, a real highlight, The Ca...

    Oh, that age has gone Oh yeah Totally For the last novel with any ounce of originality still left in it by Stephen King was surely the serial then underrated novel The Green Mile And now Now is the age of rehash boo Doctor Sleep boo boo BOO with an originality factor that registers at about 0.07% Therefore yes this ain t too bad at all, but it s no good either This is a total miss for me, for I pretty much KNOW, am certain that the writer actually manages to flourish in the sh Oh, that age has gone Oh yeah Totally For the last novel with any ounce of originality still left in it by Stephen King was surely the serial then underrated novel The Green Mile And now Now is the age of rehash boo Doctor Sleep boo boo BOO with an originality factor that registers at about 0.07% Therefore yes this ain t too bad at all, but it s no good either This is a total miss for me, for I pretty much KNOW, am certain that the writer actually manage...

    Any parting could be forever, and we just don t know Just After Sunset is the fifth collection of short stories published by Stephen King, containing 13 stories in total A lot of these stories seem to focus on the aftermath of tragedy, and how people react Whether this is pertaining to the loss of a child or the events of 9 11, it s a strong theme throughout this collection of short stories.Usually I will review short stories collectively, but I had gotten a few private messages and comments Any parting could be forever, and we just don t know Just After Sunset is the fifth collection of short stories published by Stephen King, containing 13 stories in total A lot of these stories seem to focus on the aftermath of tragedy, and how people react Whether this is pertaining to the loss of a child or the events of 9 11, it s a strong theme throughout this collection of short stories.Usually I will review short stories collectively,...

    This is probably one of Stephen King s most hard hitting collections of all time Just After Sunset is very dark, darker than most of King s material, mainly because it deals with reality just a bitthan usual and brings out deeper characters.

    There are two eras of Stephen King before and after he got clean and sober Like quite a few of his fans, some of my favorite King novels are the ones he wrote during his coke fiend days, when he was just writing whatever crazy shit ran amok through his booze addled brain Even back then, his stories were coherent and compellingly written, if sloppy at times and sometimes giving the impression of a train about to go off its rails at any moment But I really like the old King classics.That is There are two eras of Stephen King before and after he got clean and sober Like quite a few of his fans, some of my favorite King novels are the ones he wrote during his coke fiend days, when he was just writing whatever crazy shit ran amok through his booze addled brain Even back then, his stories were coherent and compellingly written, if sloppy at times and sometimes giving the impression of a train about to go off its rails at any moment ...

    I love Stephen King s short story collections I m always amazed by his ability to craft a riveting and fully fleshed out story in so few pages There have been quite a few short stories by Uncle Stevie that I would love for him to expand into a full novel As with all short story collections, there are winners and a few losers The Winners The Gingerbread Girl A story about a grieving mothers fight for her life against a sadistic serial killer Harvey s Dream About a woman who fears she may I love Stephen King s short story collections I m always amazed by his ability to craft a riveting and fully fleshed out story in so few pages There have been quite a few short stories by Uncle Stevie that I would love for him to expand into a full novel As with all short story collections, there are winners and a few losers The Winners The Gingerbread Girl A story about a grieving mothers fight for her life against a sadistic serial killer Har...
