Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to be published.
The Bazaar of Bad Dreams is the latest short story collection from Stephen King and is published on 3rd November.
A thrilling collection of
twenty stories - some brand new, some published in magazines, all
entirely brilliant and assembled in one book for the first time - with a
wonderful bonus: in addition to his introduction to the whole
collection, King gives readers a fascinating introduction to each story
with autobiographical comments on their origins and motivation... In The Bazaar of Bad Dreams
there is a curio for every reader - a man who keeps reliving the same
life, repeating the same mistakes over and over again, a columnist who
kills people by writing their obituaries, a poignant tale about the end
of the human race and a firework competition between neighbours which
reaches an explosive climax. There are also intriguing connections
between the stories; themes of morality, guilt, the afterlife and what
we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the
mistakes of the past.
