Product Description

For the first time on CD! Vintage Stephen King at a great low price!

Stephen King's unparalleled imagination is in full force in this collection of four unabridged short stories originally found in the classic, Nightmares & Dreamscapes. An all-star cast of readers bring to life these timeless stories from the darkest places.

One man's pursuit of world peace turns deadly in The End of the Whole Mess. Stephen King puts his spin on the familiar duo of Holmes and Watson in The Doctor's Case. In The Moving Finger, menace arrives poking out of the drain of a bathroom sink. And a young, pregnant widow takes on a zombie attack inHome Delivery.

Matthew Broderick, Tim Curry, Eve Beglarian and Stephen King lend their voices to this haunting collection of classic stories that no Stephen King fan should be without. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars The End of the Whole Mess is Brilliant!
EDIT: After a day of using it I knocked it down one star, for the packaging and whatnot.Go to the end of the review for that.

These four stories, from the "Nightmares & Dreamscapes" collection marks the first time I've been able to get my hands on the story "The End of the Whole Mess" on disc. While like much of King's short story collections, N&D is a hit and miss affair (often more miss than hit), I have to say that "The End of the Whole Mess" might very well be his finest story in the book.

I first heard the story read years ago at a public library that had the books on tape.Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Election) read it, and his voice is perfect for this story. He perfectly nails every note, every inflection, every stammer and stutter of the character, as the character slowly loses his mind.

Without ruining the story, it's about a man who along with his brother tried to bring world peace to the planet, with devastatingly horrific results.They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions.No more is this evident than in this story here. You have people who mean the very best, and their intentions are noble, except as with most everything, no matter how hard you try, no matter how many outcomes you plan for, there's always going to be that one you didn't calculate, which results in disaster.

And that's "The End of the Whole Mess" in a nutshell.

The other short stories on this four disc package are alright, but fall into the "miss" category, at least for me. Other people have enjoyed those short stories, I just didn't get into them.For audio books you have to appreciate the voice of the reader, and for me while Broderick's voice was excellent for "The End of the Whole Mess", I just didn't get into the other three.

"The Doctor's Case"is a spin on the Sherlock Holmes/Doctor Watson type of story, and is read by Tim Curry (Stephen King's "IT", Rocky Horror Picture Show)."The Moving Finger", no doubt will plague those who've had nightmares about what's in your bathroom sink, and is read by experimental musician Eve Beglarian.

And rounding out the four stories (each on it's own disc) is "Home Delivery", which deals with a young pregnant widow who is being attacked by Zombies, which is read by the author himself.

I bought this specifically for "The End of the Whole Mess" so the other three stories I won't listen to very much, if at all.

I kept going back and forth over the last several months on whether or not to get this, and finally I bit the bullet and did, and I'm glad I did.

A few things about the packaging and discs.

It comes in a box that you open up at the top and it acts like a slipcase of sorts, only you can seal it.Inside that is a folded box that unfolds to reveal four discs in little pockets.So they can be scratched if you're not careful, but they are not tightly fitted in there, so it shouldn't be a big problem.

Also, when I inserted the disc into Itunes to rip it to my harddrive, the tracks were not named, nor were there any information to be had via the net (by searching Itunes/Windows Media Player).

So the tracks are simply "The End of the Whole Mess Disc 1 Track 1" and so on. Not a major deal to me, although it would have been nice if there had been names.Although when it's not split by chapters, I guess it might be hard to label a short story split into 18 tracks.

The tracks are NOT split evenly, so it's not like they cheaply just set it to 5 minutes per track or anything.It looks like a regular album, tracks of different lengths.Just no names. The album title is there though, and the artist is listed as "Stephen King".

Hope you enjoy it if you get it!As I said, The End of the Whole Mess itself is worth the price of admission!

EDIT:Okay so after ripping the whole cd of "The End of the Whole Mess" I put it on my Ipod, and then listened to it later.For some unknown reason, the first 14 tracks of the disc is The End of the Whole Mess, while the last four tracks are the beginning of The Doctor's Case read by Tim Curry.There is no rhyme or reason to this, as each disc is labeled as a separate story.

Then when you insert Disc 2 "The Doctor's Case", it picks up where it left off on Disc 1.

The cassettes did this on the Nightmares & Dreamscapes Tape, as many stories were too long for a single cassette, although End of the Whole Mess was on 1 tape by itself.

I don't know why they did this, and didn't even label it as such. Eitherway, I was forced to knock a star off for this.

Editorial Review

Product Description
Among the four unabridged selections from Stephen King's chilling collection of short horror fiction, Skeleton Crew, is the author's rendering of ""The Raft."" Book available.Amazon.com Review
In the introduction to Skeleton Crew (1985), his secondcollection of stories, King pokes fun at his penchant for "literaryelephantiasis," makes scatological jokes about his muse, confesses howmuch money he makes (gross and net), and tells a story about gettingarrested one time when he was "suffused with the sort of towering,righteous rage that only drunk undergraduates can feel." He winds upwith an invitation to a scary voyage: "Grab onto my arm now. Holdtight. We are going into a number of dark places, but I think I knowthe way."

And he sure does. Skeleton Crew contains a superb short novel("The Mist") that alone is worth the price of admission, plus twoforgettable poems and 20 short stories on such themes as an evil toymonkey, a human-eating water slick, a machine that avenges murder, andunnatural creatures that inhabit the thick woods near Castle Rock,Maine. The short tales range from simply enjoyable to surprisinglygood.

In addition to "The Mist," the real standout is "The Reach," abeautifully subtle story about a great-grandmother who was born on asmall island off the coast of Maine and has lived there her wholelife. She has never been across "the Reach," the body of water betweenisland and mainland. This is the story that King fans give to theirfriends who don't read horror in order to show them how literate, howcharming a storyteller he can be. Don't miss it. --FionaWebster ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Skeleton Cruise
over one third done through this book.It's pretty good, especially the one about the Word Processor of the Gods.Type in your wish and it does just that.Very creative.

5-0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 stars; superb
For the casual fan of Stephen King or just the Stephen King fan who has only read his longer work, this is an excellent book. The collection features 22 works, which includes nineteen short stories, a novella ("The Mist"), and two poems ("Paranoid: A Chant" and "For Owen"). In addition to the introduction, in which King directly addresses his readers in his signature conversational style, Skeleton Crew features an epilogue of sorts entitled "Notes" wherein King discusses the origins of several stories in the collection. The stories are collected from science-fiction and horror anthologies (Dark Forces, Shadows, Terrors, and New Terrors) genre magazine publications (Twilight Zone, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Startling Mystery Stories, Weirdbook and Fantasy and Science Fiction) and popular magazines (Redbook, Gallery, Yankee and Playboy).

The opening story, "The Mist," is, simply put, great. After a thunderstorm in Maine, David Drayton and his son Billy go to a supermarket, only to find the building surrounded by mist from the outside. This is a completely engrossing and compelling read. Frank Darabont, who directed "The Shawshank Redmption" and "The Green Mile," also King works, made a film version of the story in 2007, and that is definitely worth seeing, as well.

To me, this book rivals "The Stand" or "It" as one of King's best. Just about every story here is excellent, and through the course of reading the book, one can really appreciate his versatility as a writer.

5-0 out of 5 stars simply the King
From the chilling uncertainty of "The Mist" to the creepiest toy monkey story you'll ever read, King takes you to all the strange but familiar places inside your head and heart, alternating shades of light and dark. As a writer, King first makes me want to give up in frustration, then delights and inspires to continue. This may be the best story collection of the latter half of the 20th century.

5-0 out of 5 stars King, yes! Short stories, yes!
You can't go wrong with Stephen King. These short stories are a nice change of pace if, like me, you've been enjoying his 1,000 page novels (It, the Stand, Needful Things). You get the same quality, but in bite size chunks that you can put down for a while and come back to later. The story about the guy stuck on the island, in particular, sticks with me. How does King come up with this stuff?

3-0 out of 5 stars So-So
I just recently began reading Stephen King again.After finishing "Cell" and having my King obsession growing again, I picked up "Skeleton Crew."Some of my favorites would include "The Mist," "The Raft," and "The Jaunt." I would recommend this collection with the disclaimer that not all of the stories are great.However, if you just read the aforementioned three stories, it would be worth your time. ... Read more

Product Description
A collection of short stories by Stephen King. "Suffer the Little Children" is read by Whoopi Goldberg, "Crouch End" is read by Tim Curry, "Rainy Season" is read by Yeardley Smith, "Dolan's Cadillac" is read by Rob Lowe. Stephen King reads an introduction.Amazon.com Review
Many people who write about horror literature maintain thatmood is its most important element. Stephen King disagrees: "My deeplyheld conviction is that story must be paramount.... All otherconsiderations are secondary--theme, mood, even characterization andlanguage."

These fine stories, each written in what King calls "a burst of faith,happiness, and optimism," prove his point. The theme, mood,characters, and language vary, but throughout, a sense of story reignssupreme. Nightmares & Dreamscapes contains 20 shorttales--including several never before published--plus one teleplay,one poem, and one nonfiction piece about kids and baseball thatappeared in the New Yorker. The subjects include vampires,zombies, an evil toy, man-eating frogs, the burial of a Cadillac, adisembodied finger, and a wicked stepfather. The style ranges fromKing's well-honed horror to a RayBradbury-like fantasy voice to an ambitious pastiche of RaymondChandler and RossMacDonald. And like a compact disc with a bonus track, the book endswith a charming little tale not listed in the table of contents--aparable called "The Beggar and the Diamond." --Fiona Webster ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars The Brooklyn Bridge, Over and Over Again
In his introduction to this collection, Stephen King recalls being a credulous youngster who believed all sorts of things--from the reality of Santa Claus to Richard Nixon's plan to get the country out of Vietnam.He is still like this, and willingly accepts the recurring disappointments in exchange for the ability to believe in a story and bring it to life.In this collection, his third following Night Shift and Skeleton Crew, King believes into existence twenty-two stories--and one nonfiction piece--intended to scare the reader "...so badly you won't be able to go to sleep without leaving the bathroom light on."Some of them deliver all too well.

Three of my favorites:

In "Dolan's Cadillac" we live through years of obsessive investigation and planning for revenge.A man traps the mob boss who ordered his wife's death and systematically covers up all evidence of his crime.Perfect.

If you could remove mankind's violent tendencies and bring about "The End of the Whole Mess" of murder and war, you would do it, right?Even if it wasn't the smartest thing to do.

In "Suffer the Little Children" we meet Miss Sidley, a teacher who has been taking care of children all of her adult life.One day her students begin acting strangely...so she takes care of them.

This book is highly recommended for Stephen King fans and readers who enjoy a well-crafted story that makes their brains squirm for a day or two after reading.

4-0 out of 5 stars Expect the expected--and the unexpected
One of the many things I love about Stephen King as a writer is this--when you read one of his works (whether short story, novella, novel, or epic novel), you get exactly what you expect, along with a bit of what you don't expect. And that's one of the characteristics that make him such an entertaining and amazing author--he keeps building his repertoire and impressing you with talents that you didn't know he had. This collection of short stories allows King to showcase many of the talents you'd expect from him, as well as a number of talents he doesn't often get an opportunity to showcase in his novels. There's a revenge tale reminiscent of Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado" ("Dolan's Cadillac"), a story featuring creepy kids ("Suffer the Little Children"), stories about animated things that shouldn't be animated ("Chattery Teeth" and "The Moving Finger"), apocalyptic tales ("The End of the Whole Mess" and "Home Delivery"), an homage to Lovecraft ("Crouch End"), and what is probably one of King's best short stories, "The Ten O'Clock People"--all pretty standard, and well done, Stephen King fare. And then there's the unexpected--a teleplay ("Sorry, Right Number"), a Sherlock Holmes story ("The Doctor's Last Case"), a poem ("Brooklyn August"), and--the most pleasant surprise of all--a non-fiction piece about King's son's Little League team ("Head Down"), which resulted in an effect I never imagined a piece of Stephen King's writing would have on me: I cried. I will continue to sing the praises of Stephen King and insist that he is one of the most under-rated and under-appreciated writers around. Despite his massive popularity, he is often derided as a one-dimensional writer with no skill outside of his chosen genre--horror. "Nightmares & Dreamscapes" offers ample proof that that is not the case at all. Read it, and be surprised.

2-0 out of 5 stars 2 stars for Seller;5 stars for book
The book had many interesting short stories.I would recommend the book but not the seller, Thriftbooks.The book they sent me had pages out of order.For example, you're reading on page 342 and the next page is 382.The pages were mixed up throughout the middle of the book.All the pages were there but not in order.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good fun, lots of chills
This collection is chock full of everything King aficionados love, and it'll easily hook the uninitiated.There are many different samples on display, from one of King's true oldies (a Castle Rock story originally published in a college literary magazine, and feeling its roots very deep...when the autumn pumpkins get loving detail, you know it's a young man's voice) to something he finished in about three days in the year this was published.They are, for the most part, very good, full of story and gab, which is what you expect from King.I especially liked 'Popsy', which is a sort of child abductor revenge fantasy meets vampire tale (parents everywhere are confronted with their greatest nightmare and must give a cheer at the end), 'Suffer the Little Children', which kept me up for HOURS later that night, 'Rainy Season', which walks the line between horror and humor very well (the only time King tips his hand is when he name drops 'The Lottery'...you'll see what I mean), and 'Umney's Last Case', since it's clever and I'll gobble up anything Raymond Chandler-esque.

There are actually only a couple of bumps in the road.King's Sherlock Holmes story is passable Conan Doyle, at best.If you want a BRILLIANT modern attempt, read Neil Gaiman's 'A Study in Emerald.'King probably gets a moderate grade because Holmes requires icy precision, subtle restraint and a wry, nimble style of writing, and King, much as I love him and much as he has great talent, is not especially gifted in those areas.(I could be wrong, but I think Holmes makes a pussy joke somewhere in there...reader, I cringed.)

Still, there is much to enjoy here.I won't give a blow by blow of everything I liked (which was a lot), and everything I didn't (which was a little.)Instead, I'll take on two stories, my favorite and the one I liked least.

Crouch End- King goes to Lovecraft country, and I absolutely didn't want it to end.Everything you love about King-- the sense of place and character, dialogue and dialect, rising sense of terror, and flat out crazy, tentacled monsters living under the city streets-- is here.It's also one of the best examples of story and mood working together, instead of fighting with each other.A young couple visiting London go to meet the husband's colleague in Crouch End.The moment they enter the suburb, I became unsettled.It got worse from there.The wife, who (spoiler) lives to tell the tale, notices the strange orange light, the claw-handed child, the people with rat heads (but she imagined it...?), the one-eyed cat who seems to become a vagrant under a bridge later.The woman's tale is interspersed with the kindly officers at the police station, who listen to her story and don't know what to make of it.The editing in this tale is very good, so that the action unfolds as you might see it on television or at the movies.I won't say what happens to the husband, or how it ends, but it's very satisfactory, very frightening, and also very creepy.I had to turn on the lights when I was done, and it was only afternoon.King's command of the British dialect in this is nearly always spot on, and he makes everyday things in the light of day appear sinister and evil.The plotting, writing, everything is good here.Happily, most of the collection falls into this area, though I think this is the best example of the book.

Home Delivery- Unfortunately, everything that is right about Crouch End is wrong about Home Delivery.The story starts out as some kind of Lifetime movie, with an incredibly mousy woman, unable to cope without a man.She once married a dashing sailor, you know, who showed her love, until...until he was drowned at sea.Now, weak minded and pregnant, she must face the void alone.And then the zombies eat the president.Not kidding.That's basically the next line.King's instincts here are wrong, between trying to play all this nonsense dead serious and the wall to wall folksiness of EVERY F---ING SITUATION.The down home charm is one of the reasons I like King, but if you were up in a space shuttle, watching space worms eat your compatriots' brains (don't ask, it'll make sense) and knowing you're next, would your last musings to the world via satellite be 'I did so like all of them, especially the fat guy who dug around in his nose.'Yeah, it's a British character.King's knack for the Brit dialect vanished on this one.Sometimes, it does seem like King will be folksy if it kills him.Then the pregnant woman fights the Ray Harryhausen (in my mind) sailor husband back from the grave, zombies you know.And the men of the island town machine-gun the whole graveyard.And the woman is happy that she'll have a home delivery.Probably the two greatest failings here were the decision to, as I said, play it straight, and the relentless down home chat.Honestly, Steve, I know you have an ear for dialogue.I BELIEVE YOU.

Still, snark ended, this is a very good, creepy read, excellent for curling up with on a dark night.Going through it, piece by piece, you see and understand how much love King has for the craft, how hard he works at it, and how much joy it brings him.It's bound to bring you happiness as well, even if it's the squirming, terrified kind of happiness.It'll do.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great RIde
I really enjoyed this book, its a lot like enjoying classical music. The moods, the tempo and the pacing of the stories is so enjoyable. The story that still freaks me out to this day is "Home Delivery" simply for the scene that takes place in the space shuttle!! King could have made a whole novel based on that scene. But he didn't and that is what makes him so good at the short stories. I think a good short story forces your mind to ask "what would have happened if the story kept on going"? Not that his novels do not do the same, but in the short story King is forced to put down the bare bones of the story. The other stories that blew me away were: The Night Flier, The Moving Finger, Crotch End and My Pretty Pony. My Pretty Pony shows the depth of King's thinking on the philosophy of time. The Ten O' Clock People is a nice story but to me it's just a ripe off of John Carpenter's They Live. All in all not a bad collection of stories. ... Read more

Product Description
"For any child fortunate enough to have this  generous book...the kings and heroes of ancient  legend will remain forever matter-of-fact; the  pictures interpret the text literally and are full of  detail and witty observation."--Horn  Book.

"The drawings...are excellent  and excitingly evocative."--The New  York Times.Amazon.com Review
No education is complete without a large slice of Greekmythology. And there's no better way of meeting that literary quotathan with the D'Aulaires' book. All the great gods and goddesses ofancient Greece are depicted in this big, beautiful classic, lovinglyillustrated and skillfully told. Young readers will be dazzled bymighty Zeus, lord of the universe; stirred by elegant Athena, goddessof wisdom; intimidated by powerful Hera, queen of Olympus; and chilledby moody Poseidon, ruler of the sea. These often impetuous immortalsflounce and frolic, get indiscreet, and get even. From petty squabblesto heroic deeds, their actions cover the range of godly--andmortal--personalities.

The D'Aulaires' illustrations have a memorable quality: once poredover, they will never leave the minds of the viewer. Decades later,the name Gaea will still evoke the soft green picture of lovely MotherEarth, her body hills and valleys and her eyes blue lakes reflectingthe stars of her husband, Uranus the sky. No child is too young toappreciate the myths that have built the foundation for much of theworld's art and literature over the centuries.This introduction tomythology is a treasure.

We are reading Greek Myths along side our Greek history lessons.My daughters, 9 and 11, love listening to me read 1 story and show off the picture per day.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read
This book came highly recommended.I've enjoyed reading it and it will be kept as a reference book in my library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Priceless and Timeless
Oversized with gorgeous and revealing illustrations, this amazing book will strike young children with awe about the mighty power of human imagination and - about Greek gods, goddesses both major and minor as well as the mortal descendants of Zeus. The masterfully retelling of Greek myths that flows in well-organized order brings to life such immortal tales of Persephone, Prometheus and the Nine Muses. I received formal training on Greek mythologies in college and though I loved these Olympian gods radiantly, it was not without pain just to figure who's whose son or daughter from Homer, Virgil and Ovid. Fortunately for my children (and I), we have D'AULAIRES' BOOK OF GREEK MYTHS that comes with helpful Zeus' family tree, index of gods' names and a constellations map. This is the definite volume on classical mythology that any family library cannot do without.

5-0 out of 5 stars So good I refused to return it to the library. . .
This is the one and only book I ever refused to return to the library.I was about five when I first found it, and I was so enthralled by the pictures and the stories that I just could not bring myself to return it. Even at that tender age I already had a long history as a library scofflaw when it came to returning books, but I always gave in eventually.Finally my mom had to pay the library for it, and that book has a place of honor on my bookshelf today, thirty years later.With over twelve nieces and nephews, I make sure each one has their own copy.I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

4-0 out of 5 stars Interim judgement...
This is an interim judgment because the book was bought as a present for my grandson's 9th birthday and he hasn't seen it yet. He is becoming interested in Greek and Roman myths and I hope that the intended reading age of 9-12 will be appropriate. ... Read more
