Stories that Stick in the Mind

I've talked before about stories that are so compelling to read that you remember them long after you've read them. So, Saturday night everytime the trick-or-treaters knocked on the door and I reached for the door handle to open the door, I hesitated as Guy Bellerantis' Tricked You Good in the regular edition of Emerald Tales flashed through my mind.

Thanks, Guy, for creeping me out on Halloween night.


  1. I love stories that stay with you. I have never looked at fog the same way since I read Stephen King's The Mist, and that was over 10 years ago.

  2. I agree with Cherie about Stephen King. He makes you look at something in a totally different way and you never see it the same again: such as Red Tennis Shoes (Sometimes They Come Back), a balloon (It), a cat (Pet Cemetary)...I could go on and on.

  3. See, I know Stephen King would give me nightmares for a year. That's why I don't read him.
