  • Your humble reviewer is devoted fan of Stephen King (1947-) the most famous novelist in America. King is also noted for his ability to spin a good yarn in the short story genre. Skeleton Crew (strangely there is no story in this collection that is called Skeleton Crew!) contains over twenty stories. All of them are good but the ones listed below are my favorite.
    The Mist-The longest story in the book. A video retelling of the tale is now showing on the Spike network. One Maine morning a mist invades a beautiful lakeside area. The first person narrator's wife urges him to go to the grocery to stock up but on his arrival he discovers that dinosaurs have invaded the market! This tale reminds me of Alfred Hitchcock's film The Birds . It has an apocalyptic theme and is quite scary.
    Mrs Todd's Shortcut tells the enchanting story of a lovely woman who resembles the ancient goddess Diana on her auto jaunts. A romantic story with great descriptions of a New England October.
    The Man Who Who Would Not Shake Hands-Tragedy following a car wreck in distant India. Every time the chief protagonist of this tale shakes hands with someone they die!
    Beachworld-A science fiction yarn about a spaceship trapped on a planet that is nothing but sand dunes!
    Nona-A bloody tale told by a serial killer who is insane
    Survivor Tale-A grisly story of an unethical medical doctor stranded on a forbidding island after his boat sinks. Not for the queasy among us!
    The Jaunt-A futuristic tale of mind travel from Earth to Mars.
    The Raft-Four college students decide to go swimming from a raft in a lonely Maine lake before being confronting by a horrible creature that eats them!
    The Reaper's Image-An early short story by King in which the image of the grim reaper appears on an expensive old mirror.
    Light and entertaining reading.

  • I read these stories back in the 1980's when book first released and purchased this one to re-read. Whatever one may say about Steven King's uneven writing from book to book, he is arguable better at the short story format than almost anyone writing today. When he is good, his characterizations are outstanding-he never fails to make you care about the people in his stories and most are well-drawn enough to be more than memorable.

    If you haven't read them I particularly recommend the novella "The Mist" and the incredible short stories "Nona", "The Reach" (King won awards for it), and "Mrs. Todd's Shortcut.

    A wide variety of plots and moods in these tales-CHECK IT OUT!

  • Reading Skeleton Crew slowly for over a year now, using it as a bridge between various other novels and such to help with my SK addiction, I can say Skeleton Crew serves as possibly the best sampling of Stephen King considering the diversity and length it gives, all for under $10. The collection features a full novel, nineteen short stories, and even a couple poems to mix things up. One can see that this really does include so much of the best from SK when so many of these stories later ended up being adapted into TV show episodes or even movies.

    Some notables include...

    The headlining feature of Skeleton Crew is certainly The Mist, which stands as one of his fan favorites, and even though it's shorter then most of his novels, he's able to still deliver on a great balance between tension, action, and character-development better than most of his 700+page novels. This story alone almost makes it worth the price, yet it only takes up a quarter of the collection.

    As many other reviewers note, Cain Rose Up sticks out awkwardly as a too simple and too violent story of a school shooting. It feels like it should actually be the end of a much more complex and interesting story (like Rage).

    The Jaunt is probably my favorite out of the whole collection for it's delivery on a interesting idea, and the resulting payoff at the end, it's also cool to read one from SK that delves into some fun sci-fi aspects. This whole story can be read online for free, so if nothing else, at least do that.

    The premise for Word Processor of the Gods is awesome enough, a homemade computer that is able to create anything into existence that is typed into it. However, I feel that this could've been made into something much bigger and better then it is, yet still stands as a good read.

    Nona felt the most like a SK story with a near excessive amount of characters that all felt like they should be part of a bigger story (which is why most of them later show up in other stories set in the same town). It still serves as a good read, especially if recently reading Body or Hearts in Atlantis.

    The Ballad of the Flexible Bullet takes some time to build up speed into a great disturbing yet subtlety comedic story. It's one of the longer and last stories in the collection and along with The Reach it's a great note to end on.

    Overall, I would recommend this collection for any SK fan, as it features many of his most popular and memorable works (especially in terms of works that are not full novels) might even be the best place for a newcomer of Stephen King to start.

  • Great collection of stories, some far better than others, but as a whole it is a great read. I bought this because I wanted to read "The Man Who Would Not Shake Hands" as it takes place in the same universe as "The Breathing Method" which is one of my favorite shorts. While this particular short didn't live up to my hopes, I found the rest of the collection to make up for it. Particularly, The Mist and The Monkey were great reads.

  • I have loved this book for years! I bought it as a hardback when it came out originally and decided I also needed it for my kindle. Stephen King is an amazing story teller, and the ones in this book are exceptional! My favorites are Mrs Todds Shortcut and The Jaunt. The Mist is also in here, and also one of my favorites. I recommend this book for anyone who likes to get creeped out like me!

  • Great King stories. Most of what he writes is great, but I should say that I am a fan. This is one of the great ones and a must read if you are a fan or have not read as much King as some folks.

  • Another group of short stories to get me through the long and pain-filled nights.

    Each one different, but inexorably tied together. Like reading a novel, made up of vignettes.

    And yes, Stephen King…in the darkest hour before dawn…I love…
