Don Brautigam, and is (mostly) superior in every way to all the countless King reprints that have followed. The short novels in Different Seasons (August 1983) are my favorites of these, followed very closely by The Dead Zone (August 1980), then The Stand (Jan 1980), while Cujo (August 1982) and Firestarter (August 1981) I've always felt were somewhat minor works. I haven't reviewed any of these titles here yet but they provided me hours upon hours of pure horror entertainment, and there's not much more I want!
Carrie, 'Salem's Lot, The Shining, and Night Shift. I loves 'em all.)
