    Olivia "So many books--so little time.""

    This is a collection of novellas and short stories in which someone is being stalked. Most of the stories are very good.

I'd like to reiterate my opinion that Dean Koontz may be the most overrated author of all time, as said opinion has been strengthened by reading his "the rats of NIMH go EVIL!!!" story here.... Also have to mention that I think TWO stories about truckers getting killed off for revenge is one too many for one book... The Rex Miller story is rather clever, but more a detective tale than horror.

    3/10/2010 : Finished these stories last night. Of all the stories in this book only ONE is by a woman--and it was the very last story. It freaked me out -- arachnophobe! I enjoy reading Koontz at almost any time and "Trapped" was the entire reason for buying the book. And re-reading de Lint's "Sacred Fire" was fun even though I of course have all his collections, which means I already have "Sacred Fire" in another book :-) Trapped • (1989) • novella by Dean R.

    Decent collection of shorts, and a novella with stalking as the central theme. Each writer has come up with a unique spin on the idea. While some stories are extremely well written, some are just okay. The draw here would be the Dean Koontz novella that opens things up, but seems to fall flat. Stalkers is great for a nostalgia read, but aside from that, there's not much here for a repeat reading. Most, if not all of these stories were released by the authors themselves and placed in their own s Decent collection of shorts, and a novella with stalking as the central theme.

    This is a nice collection of stories of terror and mystery. All about either a stalker or stalkee. I liked almost all the stories. The only two bad stories were "Darwinian Facts" and "Jezebel." All these stories were written in the late 80s. As a sign of those times, two stories was about truckers and CBs were integral part of a trucker's life back then. The best story was "A Day in the Life" but that is mainly due to being a big Repairman Jack fan. This is a nice collection of stories of terror and mystery. All about either a stalker or stalkee.

    So far so good. As with any short fiction collection, it has it's ups and downs, but overall these are really good tales about stalkers in all their forms... the things that go bump in the night, hit men, etc. The stories are ranging from those set in our world to those set in somewhere that is slightly off. I'd definitely recommend. More later. -- Overall level of writing in most stories is quite high. Definitely recommend this one! So far so good.

    Again with another bad read for me. Started out just so-so. Was disappointed in the McCammon story. I made it to page 219 before closing the cover for good. I can handle little boys squishing frogs and fish (though it is extremely gross). I can not handle it when the writer moved them up to puppies. As soon as I I read the line where the kid opened the box with the furry bundles in it, I was done.

    "Stalkers" is a great collection of short stories with a very sinister streak. While some tales are not as good as others, the book overall is definitely worth reading time. In fact, the story about disfigured Air Force cadets who hate truckers and the tale, "Mother Tucker", are worth the price of the book alone.

    I've read this book twice now and really enjoy most of the stories it contains. For me it embodies a fun read, nothing to complex or convoluted. Overall I highly recommend giving this anthology a read. I've read this book twice now and really enjoy most of the stories it contains.

    As with any short story collection, there are an assortment of tastes and quality of stories to be found in this collection. Overall, I did enjoy this gathering of horror and thriller stories and novellas. Here are the ones I considered five-star worthy: - "Flight" by John Coyne - "A Day in the Life" by F. Paul Wilson - "Lizardman" by Robert R. McCammon - "The Sacred Fire" by Charles de Lint - "The Stalker of Souls" Edward D.

    As with any short story anthology, some writers styles just do not gel with me and when that happens I stop reading. Of the ones I read ( I only skipped 2) most were good and entertaining but only a few stuck with me. Enough good stories to recommend as a nice anthology
