Having been a huge Stephen King fan for many years now, I find myself going back to some of the better novels he's written and rereading them - or even listening to them on audio tapes as I drive to and from work. I recently picked up Four Past Midnight again and found myself enjoying it even more the second time around. King's work is like a fine wine, tasting better with time. The first haunting tale is The Langoliers - a spooky time warp piece about plane passengers who have found themselves stuck in an alternate time where these strange creatures exist. I enjoyed the story, especially the character Mr. Toomey, but found it a tad too long for my taste. I still cringe when I think about what happened to the little girl. The second tale -Secret Window, secret Garden, is more my speed. It's about a writer who is confronted by John Shooter, an angry man who is accusing him of stealing his story. This story will twist your mind and has a great ending. A must read! The third tale past midnight is The Library Policeman - the best of the four stories. Ever been late getting your books back to the library? In King's haunted mind, you'll pay greatly for such an innocent mistake. This story was not only spooky and creepy but had characters you cared about. I really enjoyed this one. The fourth story is The Sun Dog - about a strange poleroid camera which takes photos of a mencaing dog. With each new picture, the dog gets closer and closer in the pictures. Another eerie (dog's) tail from the master of horror. All in all, this was a great collection of four creepy stories you'll love sinking your fangs in to.

S. King proves he is the master of horror. I see a few writers on the horizon with similar styles, grinding in the really horrific and unbelievable aspects of a tale, and I look forward to seeing how the King holds on to his throne.

The unfortunate 10 page sample is nothing but a waste of your time. It comprises of nothing but the pre-story junk. I was very disappointed since I'd been looking forward to getting an idea about this book, since I have been trying to get my hands on it for a while. I'm eventually going to buy it for The Langoliers, but a real sample just would've been nice. I'm not going to mark down the rating over it, but beware.

"H-h-hello....?" <p> The small voice shatters the silence in the dark room. <p> Short, rasping breaths echo from the speaker's mouth, clouding the air with unseen fog. <p> A rattling cough quavers the sunshine-yellow coat, hidden in the inky blackness. <p> "H-hello....?" <p> The voice sounds again, slightly louder this time, tinged with desperation. <p> Clover pink strands shadow the face of the figure, covering sky blue eyes. <p> A ruffle of uneasy feathers fortells the beginnings of panic setting in. <p> Hooves clop across a cold, frosty, stone floor, followed by the clank of rusting chains entrapping the inhabitant's lower legs. <p> A single, scarred and scrapped hoof is placed on the crumbling mortar of a cinderblock wall. It falls slowly, leaving a faint path of dark scarlet blood. <p> The prisoner lets out a pained sigh. <p> "Oh, Fluttershy.... what did you get yourself into....?" <p> ~~~ <p> {[ I feel like an evil, raving maniac right now. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! ~ Moone ]}
