TITLE:Nightmares and Dreamscapes
Author: Stephen King

The master of Horror, Stephen King, serves up twenty mind-blowing short stories designed to take the reader somewhere they would have never thought he might take them in King's book, "Nightmares and Dreamscapes."

Inside, one will find a great introduction by the writer himself as he talks about what he calls Myth, belief, faith, and Ripley's Believe it or not! Also included is a history-making telescript featuring Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, as well as a startling poem about Ebbet's Field, not to mention a thesis which the author himself regards as the best nonfiction writing of his entire professional career. And as an added bonus to the author's readers, he includes his own inside accounts of how each tale was created and why.

There are no stories in this book that fans will want to skip, which includes some superb pieces, particularly "The End of the Whole Mess." This story recounts the life of Howard Fornoy and his genius younger brother, Bobby, and how the two single-handedly destroyed the world as we know it.

"Nightmares and Dreamscapes" had a surprisingly versatile selection in style and in subject matter; unquestionably a brilliant display of Stephen King's unique imagination with stories containing believable characters and haunting situations. A must read for anyone who considers themselves a fan of horror.
