So, Just After Sunset is the second volume in my Stephen King short-stories-to-shock-you-out-of-illness mini-readathon.

This is a classic collection of thirteen or so short stories, and like all such collections a mixed bunch. The usual King themes are here – fighting back against violence, creepy cats, ghosts and revenge.

Not going to go into each story but I can tell you that my favourites were:

The Things They Left Behind – a 9/11 story

N - in the the tradition of Arthur Machen and MR James but modern day creepiness

The New York Times at Special Bargain Rates – sad

Another good collection.
