Review: You Like It Darker, by Stephen King

Stephen King is a superb writer of short stories, even if he is better known as a novelist. And to call all the stories in this hefty, nearly 500 page book, “short” stories is a bit of a stretch. One of them is 146 pages long; in my day, we called that a “novella”. Another is 86 pages long. Both of them could have done with some shortening. But I’m not complaining — King knows how to tell a story, and they are all gripping, even if some have what I felt were unsatisfying endings. Recommended.
