I can't believe a writer can actually sell a short story as a novella for $7.00. Mr. King is riding on his name and the Constant Reader is being taken advantage of. Just After Sunset opens with a story he claims not to be the best in the book, I haven't read a good short in Sunset. The last feew chapters of Under the Dome were excellent, though I was dissappointed in the work as a whole. I've read every thing he has written. I no longer look forward to his works but I'll still give him my money. I've been a fan of his my entire life but I feel I'm being taken advantage of.
I'm sorry that you didn't like Just After Sunset. I found it to be excellent, it actually got me interested in reading his earlier short stories that I hadn't yet read. ( had always focused on novels) Not every writer ( even if he's your favorite) is going to write books that his fans "Always like". It does not mean that they are a bad author or riding on their name, it just means that that particular book isn't for you.
