    Book details

Take three of the leading names in contemporary horror writing, commission one-third of a book's worth of stories from each, and the result is DARK VISIONS.

Stephen King leads off with three stories, including "Sneakers", about a very unusual haunting, and "Dedication", one of the most powerful and unsettling of all his works.

Dan Simmons pays homage to Philip K Dick with "Metastasis", one of three highly accomplished stories.

And George Martin rounds off the book with the brilliant werewolf novella, "The Skin Trade".

DARK VISIONS is a brilliantly original showcase from three masters of the macabre.

    Great book

    If one takes into account these are tales from the 80s, then this becomes a very welcome, rather enjoyable horror reading experience. I revisited it fairly recently and even today it manages to keep its punch. Brought to us by three masters of horrific and fantastic worlds, I would say my favourites are 'Sneakers' and 'Metastasis', although the bizarre 'Dedication' and George RR Martin's 'The Skin Trade', a werewolf story written long before the author became a cult figure, are also ones to recommend. 'The Skin Trade', it turns out, was actually bought by Cinemax and should become a new TV hit soon. If you like King, Simmons and Martin, and if you're considering buying this, chances are you probably do, then you will definitely not regret snatching this book.

    Besides the point that this is 'old shoes', its really fun to read.A great werewolf has closed himself in.

    "Reploids" was the only Stephen King story I hadn't seen in other collections. The other two, "Sneakers" and "Dedication" can be found in "Nightmares and Dreamscapes" (1993), which I fully recommend buying instead of "Dark Visions" if you're a Stephen King fan. Because "Reploids" is a just a blip, a short story never reprinted anywhere because it's not really all that significant. ONLY worth it if you aim to read ALL King's works, no matter how small or obscure.Dan Simmons' "Metastasis" just plain sucks. SO unworthy to follow King in any book.However, the other two Dan Simmons stories are good. Not gimmicky like the first one, but really, really very nice. "Vanna Fucci Is Alive and Well and Living in Hell" is absolutely worthy to be in any collection with Stephen King in it, because it contains some very well-aimed criticism of televised religion business, and also some nice existencial horror mixed with some plain good gross-out. And "Iverson's Pits" just might make you see war, and dying in it, in a different way.All stories date from 1988, just like this collection itself, actually. So I expect to find GRRM's story in some of his other, later collection.So yeah, if you expect to find something new here, you won't. Except for Dan Simmons, I guess.Also, this book was very hard to get, even from Amazon, I had to wait for 3 months until they finally got it in stock.
