by Stephen King and Peter Straub and several things have struck me. For one, it’s so much better than Talisman. And I kinda wish Stephen King had written it by himself. But mainly, the description of the old dude in the nursing home has me completely freaked out. Like nightmare hold me Mommy I’m gonna scream and cry freaked out. Even before I knew what I know about him, just the way his face is described and the strange and terrible words that come out of his mouth and his body language and his shifting eyes and the way his mind is there one minute and not the next then something grotesquely evil flashes across his face, it scares me to death. I came downstairs to pee in the middle of the night and I thought of him and pictured his face and ran back to bed and ducked under my covers like a little kid.
