Short Story Sunday: Rainy Season
Rainy Season, Stephen King
I stopped reading King back in the late 1990s, and in truth, I’ve forgotten almost every short story I ever read of his except this one about
an arguing couple who stumble into a strange town with an even stranger secret. You can get it in his collection Nightmares and Dreamscapes here: http://amzn.com/1439102562
Lately I’ve been working on the overwhelming task of thinning out my book collection; it’s something no book lover likes to do, but let’s face it, every once in a while it has to be done, either to clear clutter or make room for more.
It’s no surprise that a good portion of my collection is devoted to short story collections. I’ve read my share of great stories, and I’ve read my share of awful ones—but I’ve also read my share of a few that blew me away to the point at which I’ll never forget them. So instead of doing a typical “Top” list, I decided instead to focus on ones which fall into the last category (please note that in my “about” descriptions I tried to be spoiler-free). Do you have any that have made a lasting impression on you? Leave them in the comments.
