To blame Stephen King when the body count goes through the roof seems like a nice little nod to the master. In his (too) short story I Blame Stephen King, Jason Finnerty lets his shuddering first person narrative try this lame excuse for causing the ultimate disaster. Like what happened in King's The Stand.
Starting with a true, greyblooded fascist idea of how to make a better world through Armageddon, the protégé gathers a small sect of devoted lunatics - only oh so goodhearted. They administer the poison and things go just too well. Finnerty seems quite intrigued by people making baaad decisions. So his ambition settles for just presenting this idea, like something you say at a dining table.
On a large subject like this, this unusually short short story doesn't deliver. It presents the idea but lacks characterization and means of identification. The subject matter is simply too overwhelming. Next time - a novel, perhaps?
And yet, the story lingers in my mind weeks after having read it. So that means it must be somewhat OK, doesn't it?

This is the first piece I have read from Jason Finnerty. It was good enough to interest me in reading more from this author. The story was very entertaining.

I read this story because I'm a Stephen King fan. This author managed to keep my attention all the way thru with a twist at the end.

This is a terrific read if you have an extra 15 minutes in your day. It tackles a very interesting subject of how we are a major threat to the planet and without us the planet would thrive. A beautifully short presentation of Science Fiction.

The stand by Steven King is a very moving and could spark several different ways to destroy mankind. I Blame it Steven King. Shows that a person cannot fully comprehend how things can go wrong. How plans are made, but things can go really wrong.

It was okay and not an over the top story; I expected better. The dialogue seemed very choppy and did not flow well.

Short and to the point, but what point? Not much love here. But it does make one read further...maybe some real King?

Would recommend Steven King not be associated with this book. Total waste of time and disappointment. Boring to say the least!
