Another collection of short stories, Nightmares & Dreamscapes is full of hits and misses. "Dolan's Cadillac," "The End of the Whole Mess," "You Know They Got a Hell of a Band," "Sorry, Right Number," and "Umney's Last Case" were my favorites. What's great about Stephen King, though, is even the simply preposterous stories, like "The Moving Finger," are still a load of fun to read, and you still enjoy them immensely. This collection might not be for every Stephen King fan, but it's a treat for those of us who have already read all his main works.
