This review is from: Full Dark, No Stars (Hardcover)
Stephen King has had a sort of renaissance lately - the stretch of novels from Cell to last year's Under the Dome is King in top form, easily as good as (if not, in some cases, better) than his classics from the 70s and 80s. Full Dark, No Stars does not disappoint.
"1922" and "Fair Extension" are worth the price of admission alone - the latter is probably my favorite of the four stories/novellas that comprise Full Dark, No Stars. But don't get me wrong - the other two stories are great, too. And all four stories together, with their common theme of retribution and payback, make for an engrossing read.

Duma Key was 2007 wasn't it? Last year's Stephen King release was Under the Dome.

Yup. Thanks for catching my mistake - I've edited my review.

I agree completely. I love Stephen King but he did go through a so-so period. But you're right, since the Cell he's back to his prior excellence. I loved Duma Key, marvelled at Under the Dome, and this new one ranks up there with the best of his novellas. He is one of the best writers of the last 40 years and keeps topping himself.
