One of my favorite collections. "Nona", "Survivor Type", "The Raft", "The Jaunt", "The Ballad of the Flexible Bullet", and of course "The Mist"... I can just go on. Gems all!

The Ballad of the Flexible Bullet alone would have been 5+

I wavered between 4 and 5, 4 and 5, and eventually went with 4. Some GREAT stories (but not all of them); to me King's second best short-story anthology.

I'm hungry!

This is my favorite collection of shorts from King. Gramma is my favorite from this one, but I also loved The Mist, The Raft, Survivor type, Ballad of the Flexible Bullet and several others.

The only stories that I just hated were the Milkman stories. uugh.

I gave this one a 4. Some hits, and one or two misses.

This is basically my favorite short story collection of his, so I had to give it a 5. :)
