Publisher's Summary

14 classic Dean Koontz short stories. One chilling collection.

In "Strange Highways," a floundering alcoholic gets a mysterious second chance to relive the night his life began its downward spiral 20 years ago. But on this dark journey, he’ll be supremely tested by conflict with his successful, charismatic older brother, his loss of faith, and the clash between good and the ultimate evil.

Sink into this binge-worthy collection of beloved Koontz short stories, featuring denizens of hell, vengeful children, and eerily human-like robots that will send shivers down your spine.

Title Story Nearly Drove Me Insane

For starters I consider Dean Koontzs' religious beliefs his own business. I wish he respected my own desire not to hear about them a tiny bit more. However his ability to create moral and ethical characters who are also likeable may be grounded in those beliefs making him a better spokesperson than most. His stories remain exciting and frightening. But the story 'Strange Highways' is easily the most annoying story I know by him. It involves time looping itself and second chances. The result is scenes and exact paragraphs repeat again and again and again to no artistic purpose and until I wanted scream. Skip it.

A series of Dean Koontz short stories

All narrating performers were good. Disappointed to discover this was short stories. Some better than others. Consider this only average yet still entertaining.

Meh…

These stories were not very good. Wasted a credit. I don’t understand all the good reviews.
