    The overall theme of this collection whether Stephen King realizes it or not is that lazy little sin we call sloth If you're a no account layabout the Langoliers will come and eat you up If you're too lazy to write your own material John Shooter might come calling Can't be bother to take back that library book Here comes the Library Policeman to suck you dry And if you wanna make a fortune not by working but by profiting off other people

    Four Past Midnight is a collection of four stories that some would call novellas but really they are closer to novels They were written when Stephen King was supposedly “retired” I think we can safely say many novels and stories later that he is never going to retire I recently saw him on a Zoom meeting thr

    “Then his lids closed slowly over his slightly bloodshot eyes and Mort Rainey who had yet to discover what true horror was all about fell asleep” I usually enjoy King’s short stories and novellas uite a bit Unlike many he has a consistent talent with shorter works It’s sort of ironic he shines so heavy

    This isn’t my favourite King collection but it does have some spectacular stories despite that I love the first three stories and I think they each stand out for very different reasons They’re all very uniue stories but I think The Library Policeman has to be my favourite out of the four mainly because I actually used to have nightmares a

Four Past Midnight

The Bram Stoker Prize winner for Best Fiction Collection four chilling novellas from Stephen King that will “grab you and not let go” The Washington Post“Stephen King is a master storyteller and you will never forget these stories” raves the Seattle Times about Four Past Midnight This collection guaranteed to keep readers awake long after bedtime features an introduction and prefatory notes to each novella by the author One Past Midnight “The Langoliers” takes a red eye flight from LA to Boston into a most. 4 tosses 3 hits no bad statistic in this highly varying collection of short works from the man himselfLangoliers is a bit of a controversial thing one of the rare cases King is using some Sci Fi and cosmic horror elements although he doesn t seem to have cared so much about the characterization as one is used to by him Something is just missing it s most possible that King just isn t the man for combining worldbuilding and characters seems to make him or the characters he is letting do the work nervousSecret Window Secret Garden is an escalating blackmailing stalking story with a very finetuned end something closer to a psychological thriller psychothriller than the horror King is usually writing inspired by real world problems The Library policeman reminds me of his stories with other strong mad frightening lead female characters such as the Dark Tower witch and the misery nightmare nurse with elements of the old evil from It I would call it the best of the 4 novellas because it would have had the potential for a full novel much could have been added here The Sun Dog is the classic immediate Kingian gotcha a simple camera used to write a story about occultism haunting and greed even including some ethics about money playing with some flashbacks before view spoilergiving the antagonistic character what he deserves and letting him take a long way of gold fever to self destruction instead of easily just destroying the danger hide spoiler

REVIEW Four Past Midnight

Unfriendly sky Only eleven passengers survive but landing in an eerily empty world makes them wish they hadn’t Something’s waiting for them you see Two Past Midnight “Secret Window Secret Garden” enters the suddenly strange life of writer Mort Rainey recently divorced depressed and alone on the shore of Tash Lake Alone that is until a figure named John Shooter arrives pointing an accusing finger Three Past Midnight “The Library Policeman” is set in Junction City Iowa an unlikely place for evil to be hiding. A woman who would steal your love when your love was really all you had to give was not much of a woman Reviewing collections is so difficult and my brain is literal mush right now so I ll make it easier by breaking it down story by storyThe Langoliers might possibly be my favourite in this collection It grabbed my attention from the very beginning and didn t let go Flying is scary enough but imagine waking up from your on flight snooze to find the plane practically empty eerie stuff 4 starsI have never watched the movie for Secret Window featuring Johnny Depp before so I went into the novella Secret Window Secret Garden knowing absolutely nothing Which was probably a huge reason why I did find it uite enjoyable Although somewhat predictable I enjoyed the themes and the general storyline around every author s worst nightmare accusation of plagiarism 4 starsAs for The Library Policeman geez that was hard going An entertaining story but I can t remember the last time I had to set aside a book because a scene was too graphic for me I also got some intense Pennywise vibes with our featured creature A stark reminder to everyone to return your library books 35 starsAs always it was good to visit Castle Rock in The Sun Dog The story centres around a Polaroid camera that is producing some strange and alarming photos And we get to spend some time with a member of the infamous Merrill family However maybe this would have been suited to a short story rather than a novella it dragged on slightly I thought But loved the Lovecraft shoutouts with the mention of Arkham and Dunwich 35 starsOverall an entertaining collection A welcome component is King introducing each story I always love these 35 stars

But for small businessman Sam Peebles who thinks he may be losing his mind another enemy is hiding there as well the truth If he can find it in time he might stand a chance Four Past Midnight “The Sun Dog” a menacing black dog appears in every Polaroid picture that fifteen year old Kevin Delevan takes with his new camera beckoning him to the supernatural Old Pop Merrill Castle Rock’s sharpest trader aims to exploit The Sun Dog for profit but this creature that shouldn’t exist at all is a very dangerous investme. 35 StarsI m not sure Uncle Stevie knows the definition of a short story The four stories in these collection are like novellas or short novels As with all story collections the ratings vary The Langoliers 2 StarsThe first story was my least favorite The premise is great several passengers on airplane awaken to find everyone else on board has vanished That sounded great but after the first 50 pages the story just dragged and the story was overly long It just wasn t a fun read Secret Window Secret Garden 4 stars This was my favorite story out of the collection even if it was a little predictable A writer dealing with a divorce and writers block opens his door to a man claiming the writer plagiarized his storyThe Library Policeman 35 StarsA man pays an unforgettable and terrifying visit to his local librarySo close to being my favorite but just overly long The Sun Dog 3 StarsA boy receives a very strange camera for his 15 the birthdayThe only true horror story in this collection but like a lot of Stephen King works the ending was a little Meh Four Past Midnight was a good collection but not one of his greats Its still a great addition to your King collection
