Publisher's Summary

This collection of short stories from the master of modern fiction is available only as an audiobook. In Blood and Smoke, Stephen King takes us inside a world of yearning and paranoia, isolation and addiction. It is the world of the smoker. In this audio-only collection, the now politically incorrect habit plays a key role in the fates of three different men in three unabridged stories of unfiltered suspense. In Lunch at the Gotham Café, Steve Davis is suffering through intense withdrawal - from both nicotine and his wife. His desperation for a cigarette and for his ex are almost too much to bear, but that's nothing compared to the horrors that await him at a trendy Manhattan restaurant. In 1408, Mike Enslin, best selling author of "true" ghost stories, decides to spend the night in New York City's most haunted hotel room. But he must live to write about it without the help of his ex best-friends, his trusty smokes. And in In the Deathroom, a man named Fletcher is held captive in a Central American stronghold. His captors will use any torturous means necessary to extract the information they want from him. His only hope lies with his last request - one last cigarette, please. Features the tale 1408, now a Dimension Films motion picture starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson.

Excellent!

Very cool to have the stories read to you by the author. The middle story, "1408", is creepy and intense - a great ghost story.

Smokers Beware

Stephen King always suprises you. If you enjoy reading something besides the standard "Scary Carrie" stories, try this collection which represents an amalgam of short works on the theme of smoking. Not only will you enjoy the stories, you'll probably find ample reason to quit smoking after doing so.

Masterful storyweaver, so-so narrator

I love Stephen King. I have been collecting his books for as long as I can remember. These stories all appear elsewhere and I have read them all previously, and enjoyed them. This is a collection of three excellent stories, my only slight negative comments are:
1. I think that something King's character Paul Sheldon said in 'Misery' rings true - that you might be a good storywriter, but not necessarily a good storyteller! I was a little disappointed with Stephen King's narration. Found it somewhat bland.
2. The topic this is supposedly based on, smoking, is rather a loose connection at best.
But these are minor complaints really, the stories themselves are great and I enjoyed listening to them, after having read them before.
