This came to me in the 'I Don't Want to Move It Bookbox.' Thanks very much!

From the back cover: 'In places where fear dwells and blood runs cold, sinister forces and unspeakable things are working the Night Shift. From the depths of darkness where hideous rats defend their empire, to dizzying heights were a beautiful girl hangs by a hair above a hellish fate, Night Shift will plunge you inot the subterranean labyrinth of the most spine-tingling, eerie imaginations of our time.'

Because I like my books to travel, I'm going to send this one in a ray! I am into low stress bookcrossing, so please don't feel like you have to rush. If you need to keep the book more than a few weeks, please just make a journal entry to let us know when you'll be able to finish and pass it on. The last person in the ray is free to do what they like with the book. All I ask is that they keep it moving somehow. Enjoy!

Here is the list as it now stands. I may do some rearranging if more people ask to join, but I always do my best to honor people's shipping preferences.

Great stories by the master of story telling. I read this on holiday and it was perfect for that.

Another good book from a good writer. This book has reinforced my ideas about King, the central theme of which is that he doesn't play to his strengths. He writes superb psychological chillers, but he insists on bringing in tentacled beasts and common-man-turned-exorcists which seem right out of Lovecraft and low budget movies (in that order). All his stories proceed superbly till he suddenly decides to turn flitting shadows into grotesque monstrosities, at which point it all starts going downhill. The few stories where he avoids such cheap cliches are real gems. It's really amazing how he weaves in his observations on human emotions and relationships into his stories. This man deserved more acclaim than he got. My favourites from the collection are:-

The Boogeyman
Strawberry Spring
Children of the Corn
The Man Who Loved Flowers

Thanks to everyone in the ray! PMing Angelfirestar for address.
