    Editorial Review

    Since his first novel was published in 1974, Stephen King has stretched the boundaries of the written word, not only bringing horror to new heights, but trying his hand at nearly every possible genre, including children's books, graphic novels, serial novels, literary fiction, nonfiction, westerns, fantasy, and even e-books (remember The Plant?).

    1-0 out of 5 stars Other than Kenyon, awful compilation
    I didn't like one story in this book other than Kenyon's, and even that wasn't her best.The book was actually so bad that I resent the money I paid for it.And to add insult to injury, the other book I bought that was a compilation including Kenyon was even WORSE.Just a total waste of money.Two of the stories are written in the first person -- and come on, are you a 12 year old writing a story for composition class? -- and all of them are hokey and, to be blunt, lame.

    2-0 out of 5 stars severely disappointed
    Severely disappointed is the only way to describe my reaction to this anthology.I ran right out to buy this book because of all the positive reviews.Save your money and buy it used.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Some are silver and the others gold, but all GREAT!
    To say that I was looking forward to this book for the authors that I already know and love is an understatement.I couldn't wait to read L.A. Banks' story and Sherilyn Kenyon's.However, I have to say that I not only enjoyed the stories from the authors that I am already familiar with and love, but I enjoyed the stories from the authors who were previously unknown to me as well.What a great introduction to something new!I am definitely going to be broadening my book collection with some new authors and of course will continue on with the ones I love and know already.This was a book filled with interesting, romantic and exciting tales and I would recommend it to anyone.KUDOS to these writers for a capital accomplishment.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Original Erotic Horror Novel
    When people mention erotic horror, which is a phrase thrown about continuously nowadays, I immediately think of Ray Garton's "Live Girls". There may have been other books that came before this one to pioneer the new sub-genre of horror but Live Girls was the first I was exposed to. In this regards, I find myself unbelievably lucky.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Unique, gritty, vampy...
    Just now finished reading Live Girls. It's been a while since I've read straight horror and I reentered the genre with Ray Garton. I'm glad I did. The book was well-written with solid, realistic, flawed characters. Some of the things in there I hadn't seen before. I applaud Mr. Garton for breaking new ground - and for giving people new reason to avoid peep shows! Seems kind of obvious in hindsight that vampires would frequent the sex clubs - what a great way to shop for food! I'm glad to hear that there's a sequel and will be sure to read it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I "Hole-Heartedly" Enjoyed Live Girls!
    Ray Garton's Live Girls is everything a good horror novel should be: hip, edgy, fast-paced, and entertaining. But it goes one step further. It's everything a good vampire novel should be, leaving behind the Victorian trappings of Bram Stoker's Dracula and moving swiftly into twentieth-century Times Square. Thankfully there are no whining Anne Rice types brooding about the futility of life while sipping absinthe and applying black nail polish. This novel takes a fresh, original look at undead bloodsuckers and is more From Dusk Til Dawn than Interview with a Vampire. In my book, that's a very good thing.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Dropped call....
    As a huge Stephen King fan I really looked forward to reading this book but was quickly disappointed.There's no real character development.I would like to know who Tom was before the pulse or what Alice was like before the pulse. It started off very strong but towards the middle it started to lag and then eventually stopped.I didn't feel like I was reading a true Stephen King book at all. This felt like a third rate 'The Stand' with cell phones instead of a flu virus. 'The Stand' was a much better read.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Sorry, Wrong Number
    What happens if one day everyone within hearing range of a cell phone were to suddenly go insane?What if that insanity caused those afflicted to attack everyone within sight?Stephen King asks these questions in this book.Unfortunately, our protagonists never find why and King makes me wish that he had picked the protagonists that located the source of the pulse.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Not one of Stephen King's best
    The idea behind this book is a good one, like many of King's book: what if at one point in time, every person in the world who talks on or listens to a cellular phone receives some "signal" or "pulse" that acts like a "reset" button on a computer, erases his or her personality and leaves only primal madness, aggressiveness and eventually a sense of flocking with others of their kind? And what if a few people who were smart or lucky enough not to receive that "pulse" and have been able to figure out that the cell phones are the cause, get together and set off on a journey towards possible sanity?

    2-0 out of 5 stars Great reads ruined by horrible characters
    The other reviewers will tell you about the book.I've read most of Preston and Child's works, including the other two books in this trilogy, and they are a good read.What gets very old and nauseating is the continual saps to modern feminism.I guess it's a necessity to get published today, but you'd think that at least SOME male authors would get tired of grovelling just to get published.I guess most people will sell their souls for money.Just about all the men in P and L's books are either wimps, effiminate, weak, bumbling, stupid (or liars or murderers), cry-babies, scared of their own shadows, and thoroughly unlikable (even Pendergast has his moments).The women, of course, are, without exception, tough, brilliant, shrewd, fearless, always right, on the rise to the top, always outsmarting the men, able to knock out a 7 foot, 300 pound man with a single karate chop to the neck (forgive the slight hyperbole), totally unfeminine, and just as unlikeable as the men.The stories are very good; it's unfortunate Preston and Child couldn't have come up with better, more realisticly human, less insulting characters.This slop may play in New York and California, but in Texas we still want our men to be men and our women to be women.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great trilogy
    Preston and Childs have ended this trilogy with a great high adventure read. Agent Pendergast is a most intriguing central character as are the supporting cast members.The ending leaves one to believe that there could be yet another novel.....????
    5-0 out of 5 stars A fitting conclusion to the trilogy...but is it really the end?
    This book was billed as the capper to the Pendergast series, when all of the plot threads left by "Dance of Death" would be neatly sewed up. Much to my delight, the authors were apparently seduced into keeping things going. Not to give the plot away, but I doubt that we've seen the last of Diogenes, and the last sentence in the book just screams "continuation."

    1-0 out of 5 stars Something STINKS and it is not the zombies
    WARNING! This book WILL offend a lot of fans.
    5-0 out of 5 stars It's feeding time
    A while ago, Mark Millar spun a tale during his run on Ultimate Fantastic Four in which an alternate reality was introduced in which Marvel's first family were zombified flesh eaters.Well, just imagine if pretty much all of the Marvel universe heroes and villains were the flesh eating undead, only they still had their powers and wits about them.Robert Kirkman, best known for his incredible Walking Dead series, knows a few things about zombies, and the yarn he spins here is one of the guiltiest pleasures you'll ever read.Magneto is seemingly the inly unaffected super-human on the planet, and he's face to face with Captain America, Spider-Man, the Hulk, Giant Man, Luke Cage, Wolverine, Daredevil, Thor, and every other Marvel hero you can name who has been zombified.Soon enough, the Silver Surfer arrives to Earth foretelling of the coming of Galactus who plans to devour the planet.And oh yeah, guess who the Marvel Zombies plan on devouring too.Sometimes predictable, loaded with dark humor, and wonderfully drawn by Sean Philips; Marvel Zombies is a fleshy treat.From Spidey's self loathing ("I can't believe I ate my wife and aunt!") to Giant Man keeping Black Panther alive and sawing off a few parts to eat, Marvel Zombies may not be a Marvel MAX title, but it's definitely not for the squeamish.A big load of fun that's over too quick, Marvel Zombies is a worthy pick up for longtime Marvel readers looking to see the company's icons in a different, slightly decomposed light.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Visually pleasing, short on story line
    Let me preface my review by saying that outside of the Walking Dead series, I have read very little graphic novels/comic books since I was a kid.So if you are a passionate fan of the genre, you may not gain much incite from my review.If you are a fan of the Walking Dead series or zombie works in general, my review is pointed more at you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bravo, King.
    Nearly a year after reading this epic series, I decided to come on to Amazon to see how it was rated among fellow junkies. I was not at all surprised to see that the reactions to this book, not unlike most books on Amazon, spanned quite broadly across the 5-star spectrum. The biggest difference I noticed between this and other books is that regardless of what the viewpoint of the reviewer was, the description behind it was often lengthy and passionate. Most of the negative reviews are negative because King left the reader feeling betrayed, empty and hurt -- and some people can't deal with that kind of emotional burden. The beauty of his "magnum opus" is that he achieved exactly what he intended to. Out of the near 600 reviews this novel has received, very few of them are one-liner reviews shooting the book down without a second thought. Call me crazy, but I think the cascade of emotional response from his readers speaks for itself with regards to the integrity and brilliance of this series and even this ending.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Dark Tower
    The Dark Tower is the 7th book in the Dark Tower Series by Stephen King. It is about a Man, Roland, and his quest for the Dark Tower. He picks up many companions on the way and has a huge adventure through out the books; I thought this was a great finish to a great series.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Series ever written with the perfect ending.
    Book seven in the series "The Dark Tower" finally brings the much-awaited ending to a story that is impossible to put down.When I began reading this series, I became entrenched in the story, its characters and most importantly how it made me feel about life, and the world we live in.For those people who criticize the ending, I suppose it isn't for everyone, but you have to admit you didn't see it coming, and that my friends is what a true storyteller is able to do.After you finish the story, continue into the author's note to understand what I mean.As for the author, well he is brilliant as usual.The visualization you, as a reader, are able to create in your mind is unbelievable.The different worlds, the landscape, the characters, the language, and of course the story.Stephen Kings put it best when he asked everyone reading the books "I hope you are reading this for the story and not the ending."Anyone can write an ending, but to tell a truly wonderful story is impossible for most.I have recommended this series to many, and I not know of one who has disliked it.To read this sort of story, you have to keep an open mind, let your fantasies run wild and for GAN'S SAKE put down the remote, grab a glass of scotch and immerse yourself into the story.You will not be disappointed, this I promise.The scariest thing about this series, and about the ending, is that you can actually picture it happening, not just to the character but also to yourself.While my review isn't to break down the book, you can do that for yourself.It is more to entice you into reading it, but not for the ending (though incredible), but for the story and the journey.ENJOY! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Plain everyday wanting to write
    I'm your plain everyday wanting to be writer. I found, 'On Writing' to be one of the best books I've read. Mr. King writes of his childhood and life in the first part of this book, then in the second half gives advice on how to write, which I have highlighted and marked up something awful. I was one of those teenagers he talks about in his book, that failed English in high school, and thought I was dumb, because of it. I did write as a child, only for myself, not like Mr. King who wrote for Dave's Rag. I loved the parts that spoke of his and his brothers dreams, escapades, or just having fun growing up. It brought back memories of me and my brother. I've read a few books by King, but I find I loved this one the most. I'm one of the older crowd, five years older then Mr. King. I wish he would write more books on plain everyday life, as he lived with his brother and mother, for me and others out there who don't want to read murder, mystery, etc. I'm not saying I didn't like Misery, because I did. I guess now in my elder years I'm just looking for a little less anxiety. I guess I'm what you call "old" and want to think of the world as a loving place and nothing more. I know I'm just dreaming about loving your neighbor, but I "do" believe that people are out there to love one another. I tried my hand at self publishing a book named, "Fears Flutterby", maybe if Mr. King reads this he can give me some tips.
    5-0 out of 5 stars As Much of a Writer's Manual as a Riveting Tale Told By a Master Story Teller
    I am not sure how I should classify ON WRITING. It is part memoir, part guide or manual, and part autobiography. As a reader, this book entertained me. As a writer, this book empowered me.
    5-0 out of 5 stars On Writing, by Stephen King
    So you've finally come to it: you wake up in the morning, and decide to heck with this nine to five job, bills, and a squinty-eyed boss that smells like old tobacco - you want something better out of life. You've decided to do what you always wanted to do; become a writer, and create worlds and whole universes for a living.

    Annoying.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Something for the rest of us..
    I keep hearing about how many people get offended by this series and want it banned, or make comments about how "sick" one would have to be to enjoy this or get turned on by it. I find all this very sad. Imagine having a series of books that you love, that you've read when you were much younger and adored ever since. Well, that's me and this series. I read quite a bit of erotica as an early teen, and most of it bored me, vanilla sex, everyday occurances, and the same. This was something unique, and also something that happened to turn me on very much so, as I had fantasies of being forced to become a sex slave. Beyond those fantasies, I'm a normal girl. Anyways, I guess my point is, if the 'normal' erotica isn't doing much for you, or if you just want a unique fantasy world erotica, check this out and ignore all the silly outcry.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Way beyond ridiculous.......
    This book was nothing like its advertisement.I thought it was going to be a new take on the sleeping beauty fable, but it wasn't.It took the fabled character Beauty and made her a sexual slave at the mercy of a medival sex ring. All the surrounding kingdoms sent beautiful princes and princesses to this castle as a tribute.This young royals were subjected to horrific tortures and were treated worse than livestock. The characters who led this sex ring claimed it made these spoilt royals better people and better rulers when they were returned.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Stationary bike - A decent King tale in Audio CD format
    Stationary Bike is a Stephen King story that is reminiscent perhaps of his days writing under the name Richard Bachman.With this audio book format, we have a story that is strong in character development and imaginative themes.Its only downfall perhaps is that it is to short of a story and leaves an ending that finds closure with the main character but at the same time, a somewhat uninteresting outcome.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Stationary Bike - OK
    I read everything and anything King, he is my favorite author. This short story is interesting but predictible.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Stationary Bike MOVES

    5-0 out of 5 stars Klarkashton of Atlantis
    If you like Howard and Lovecraft and Dunsany, you will like Clark Ashton Smith.His stories are little constructions for the most part with words as archaic and arcane as his subject matter.These stories should be read separately and from time to time.Too much could be an overdose.

    1-0 out of 5 stars What happened Laurell K?
    I was a fan of the Anita series from the beginning.The last couple books were dissapointing, but I went ahead and bought this one in the hopes things would have improved.They have not.The nearly non-existent plot takes a back seat to the gratuitous sex scenes.The characters have stopped developing along with any interesting story lines.I'm sad to say that I'm now giving up on this series.This will be the last Anita book I read.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful AND Hot
    I'm always on the edge of my seat waiting for the next Laurell K. Hamilton, and always on edge of my seat as I read. The beautiful prose, the characters who become so real that you genuinely care what happens to them - and think about them long after you've closed the book - make reading her a one of a kind experience. And then there's the sex scenes! They're so evocative, so original in the way they're imagined and described that Ms. Hamilton absolutely stands alone. She is an Original and a treasure, and I know I'll be grateful for every new book that comes out.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Stop, please.Just stop.
    Ms. Hamilton, please just stop writing Anita Blake novels.The Anita we all knew and loved is gone.Let the Anita of your first books rest in peace and start something new.Please. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Doesnt age like wine
    The book is well written but never delivers the punch it tries to build. It borders on 'who cares?' as it drags and drags on. The new generation of readers will not get the stuggle of a man living in a futuristic 70's though wriiten in the 50's. Its supposed to take place in the seventies which it clearly is not.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Snoooooooze
    I thought "I am Legend" was a real snooze - pretty boring actually. I also thought it wasn't very well thought out. Matheson poses some questions throughout the story but never answers them. So you never really know how the plague starts or why. You never fully understand how it spread and how the main character ends up where he is. Then you never understand why the woman het meets is the way she is. Then the ending is sort of like "oh well, it's about time to wrap this up - I know, let's just kill off the main character, that'll do." I was very disappointed. I tried the next story and found it to be even more disappointing and so I stopped reading the book.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Maybe just a little too much hyperbole
    This is actually the original novel (170 pages) and some additional short stories written over the next thirty five years (the last in 1989).

    4-0 out of 5 stars I found myself having a good giggle now and then
    I avoided the book for quite sometime, not really sure why, it was a hot topic of conversation at uni and it's sealed cover was a good gimmick -at the time.As a rule I'm not into gore however since the novel was a critique of corporate America in the eighties I thought it might be worth an attempt, only problem however you cant cover your eyes and ask if the nasty bits are over yet.After you've been desensitized, the violence becomes comic and I found myself having a good giggle every now and then, I should also add there were times when i couldn't.Ellis has great wit and eventually you get to really like the protagonist; at arms length. Patric is wonderfully vein and obsessive about the unimportant, i loved his little music review asides, he does one of a Whitney CD, ironic that she is the embodiment of the downs side of the 80's.I wouldn't judge the book by the movie it really is a much better read.I've read other works by ellis this is the best out of the lot i've read. I don't know if it is a generational thing however he is def. 1 of the best writers of my imagination, i mean my generation.

    4-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the book, 3 for my reaction
    When my book club picked this book, I was worried. I didn't live in America during the 1980s, so I don't really know what it was like. The pages and pages of brand-conscious description at first confused me, but then I understood that Ellis was creating a dizzying world of superficiality and bizarre values. His psychopath camoflauges himself in the shallow world of 1980s NYC astonishingly easily.
    5-0 out of 5 stars American Classic
    This book captures, albeit graphically, the desperation to fit in, to conform in America. All the characters focus on where and with whom they are eating dinner, what everyone else is wearing, and how much their apartment is worth. People's names and faces are interchangeable.

    2-0 out of 5 stars If Koontz couldn't tell a good story...
    I would have left this book in the airline seat back on my way to the exit.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Could have been much better
    Unlike the other reviewers, I enjoyed the first book more. Deucalion, the most interesting character, is not utilized enough in this book and there are more storylines than necessary. Deucalion and Victor Helios (Frankenstein); Randal Six and Arnie; Erica Five and Victor; the two detectives. Less would have been better.
    4-0 out of 5 stars An Easy Read
    Dean Koontz's Frankenstein books, each of which are co-authored by other writers, are entertaining, quick reads. While I am looking forward to the next installment, and am interested in what happens to the characters, I can't help wondering if they would be "better" if Mr Koontz wrote them alone. The normal Koontz-ian character development doesn't seem as thorough, and the build-up of suspense is not as acute. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Story: Amazing Writer.
    Readers must applaud Ms. Rice for her courageous and highly educational historical-oriented 'Christ The Lord: Out Of Egypt'.The research conducted by Ms. Rice, combined with the necessary rudimentary style of dialogue, the ability of the author to dive into the soul of a young boy coming of age while creating accurately the atmosphere and setting that took place during the early years of Jesus is astonishing.Simply put, I loved this book.
    5-0 out of 5 stars When did Christ know that He was the Messiah?
    This is the question posed by this wonderful novel by Anne Rice. I had never read anything by Ms. Rice before this, but I LOVED this book. Her scholarship and research are excellent. She places you right in the first century amid the sights, sounds, political tensions and emotions of the Jews at that time. You really get a sense of what the people were like and how devout they were.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and Inspiring
    I was enraptured with this novel.I have always wondered what Jesus' childhood may have been like.I feel that she has captured the innocence, mystery, confusion, and everyday life of Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and their extended family.In addition, the details with which Anne Rice speaks on Jewish traditions, the Temples, and their faith shows her love of research and need for realism in her novels.

    I started reading this book to my kids when they were both around the age of four.Now they are about six and eight and they still love it.Funny book.

    My son and I have read this book over and over and over again.Whether it's Halloween time or not this book will be a sure favorite of kids' who like the dark side.Don't take this to mean that the book is dark or scary.What I mean is that if your kids have a taste for spookies then this book will not fail to please.Great pictures with subtle hidden pictures that show that the spookies and such aren't real in this haunted house.The text is fun to read outloud to the wee ones.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best of the field.
    I'm reviewing this as an afterthought. Of its genre "The Stand" is, without question the best. And the story is, in my opinion, the greatest Stephen King has done. I've read the other reviews and I won't go into specifics, however, if you enjoy reading end of it all types of stories you will love this book. Another reviewer complained about it being lengthy. Well, you don't have to read it to realize that. But the story and characters are original and well developed. The plot progresses smoothly to an exciting climax with lots of incredible things happening throughout. And I've read it three times.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Much too long and much too boring....
    Stephen King is a master of suspense, but for whatever reason he decided to leave his trademark out of this apocalyptic 'masterpiece.'
    4-0 out of 5 stars steven king at his best
    well i got screamed at by my mom for reading this book.she found out it was longer than the bible and got really fired up saying i shouldve read the bible.anyhow,the plot is simple.a doomsday plague is released killing near everyone.everyone left either gave visions from this old chick or a weirdo.its like the ultimate showdown between evil and good.............well thats what you are led to belive in 1800 plus pages of agonizingly meticulous details.then the end comes and it really sucks.i personaly think he had a deadline to meet or something and cut the book short.its hard to put down but its got its faults. ...
