King should be commended for still being committed to the art of the short story. For those who are frustrated with King's sometimes epic tomes, this collection could be a suitable antidote.
However, that's not to say that this is the best collection that King has produced. Here, the quality is much more variable than, say, Everything's Eventual or Different Seasons. There are a few gems though, including 'N', which combines haunting Cthulhu mythos with OCD to chilling effect.
King also includes a couple of sombre pieces that were influenced by the September 11th attacks. These aren't sensationalistic or overly played, but sensitive and obviously the outpouring of someone trying to make sense of a situation that even now is difficult to accept.
There's much to enjoy here, despite some reservations. Here's hoping that King keeps producing these anthologies, as he's truly a master of the form.
