What gives? Why are people obsessed with this story?
Syd Midnight Its not like there's any shortage of good Stephen King short horror stories. I'd like to see "The Jaunt", and the one where a guy drinks a can of really skunky beer and it turns him into a monster.
When his stories are like 15 pages long, that cures like 90% of his shortcomings as an author. I bet even "Tommyknockers" would have been good if it was 15 pages long. Also each of the Gunslinger books.
