Great short stories!!

Well, for whatever reason, there is no list of stories on any of the three Nightmares and Dreamscapes downloads. Anyway, I downloaded this one, Vol I, and to help future shoppers, here is the story list, in order, for this volume.

SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN, read by Whoopie Goldberg.

CROUCH END, read by Tim Curry.

RAINY SEASON, read by Yeardley Smith. (If you are a Simpson's fan, you will recognize the voice of this reader. For me, a horror story read to me by Lisa Simpson isn't a horror story. I laughed more than anything! Don't get me wrong, I adore Yeardley Smith, however, this was not a story for her talents.)

DOLAN'S CADILLAC, read by Rob Lowe. (This one is my favorite story of the lot.)

THE HOUSE ON MAPLE STREET, read by Tabitha King.

UMNEY'S LAST CASE, read by ???

HEAD DOWN, read by Stephen King.

BROOKLYN AUGUST, read by ???

As with any collection of short stories, everyone's tastes will be different. Dolan's Cadillac is the reason I downloaded this volume. I remember reading this one YEARS ago and thought is was one of Mr. Kings best non-horror stories he had written to date. The other stories are very good as well, but for me, a couple of them are quite forgettable. Bottom line; if you are a Stephen King fan, you will enjoy this download.

The best King audio books available

I owned these three volumes on tape, and I am thrilled to see them on audible. The narration is engaging, and the story telling is excellent.
