What the Critics Say

"Hypnotic." (The New York Times Book Review)
"To find the secret of his success, you have to compare King to Twain and Poe - King's stories tap the roots of myth buried in all our minds." (Los Angeles Times)
"Buy Different Seasons. I promise you'll enjoy it.... He creates people who are so alive, you can almost sense them." (Minneapolis Star-Tribune)
