I've been pretty hard on Stephen King as of late, namely I haven't really liked a new release from him in a very long time. Michelle of The True Book Addict is a humongous fan of his and is always trying to convince me to give him another try, so when I saw Nightmares & Dreamscapes and The Talisman by him and Peter Straub in hardcover for $1 a piece at the Friends of the Library Book Store I figured I would give them a try. The Talisman will be a reread, but not one that I've read for many years, and Nightmares & Dreamscapes will be a new one for me. I also picked up Archangel by Michael Conner in hardcover for $1 as well, it's an alternate reality story set in Minneapolis, MN in the 1920s after a virulent plague that only kills whites.
The Secret (Of Happiness) by Demosthenes Armeniades was sent for review. It calls itself an offbeat fairytale-thriller so I'm really looking forward to this one.
