      I understand King is a little embarrassed of this pamphlet's circulation- it's his first real publication, horror stories he wrote and printed himself in junior high with a friend. It's marginalia, mostly juvenile, but could you have done better at 12? If nothing else, this is a great look into the developing mind of one of the most iconic horror authors of all time.

      All the stories were incredibly short but very powerful. I enjoyed them a lot.
