    Ricky, did you like Bazaar of Bad Dreams? I'm about halfway through, and really enjoying it more than I had expected.

    I guess as a whole I enjoyed it, but wish there were more "dark" stories like his earlier collections. What's your favorite so far?

    I thought of my post last night when I read "Morality" and thought: "What the eff did I just read?!" That one was just too weird.

    Other than that little disturbing piece, I really liked Batman and Robin Have An Altercation and Mile 81.

    I really liked Batman and Robin. I also really liked Drunken Fireworks, Ur, and Herman Wouk Is Still Alive. Bad Little Kid and The Dune were the ones that came the closest to "classic" King, I guess, but I think those three were my favorites.
