1. “Cycle of the Werewolf” by Stephen King
I really like Stephen King. I’m pretty sure I say that each time I review another of his books. I definitely can’t say that this book wasn’t interesting. Someone dies in each chapter for the first half of the story almost. One thing that always intrigues me is how Stephen King plays with the idea of God and religion. I read this story before I realized that it was related to a movie I haven’t seen. I just know I wasn’t allowed to watch it as a child, “The Silver Bullet”. Having never seen the movie, I can’t really say if it’s close to the novella or not. Worth a read? Definitely.
I knew I had to read this when I realized it was written by George R.R. Martin. I also seem to remember seeing a movie that went along with it. I’ll get into that in a second. I would just like to say that this was a short, easy read. By easy, I mean that it was engaging and made me want to keep reading. There were a lot of unanswered questions, but that kinda goes with it being a novelette. So, I remember seeing this movie once upon a time… turns out it wasn’t a movie. It was the first episode of the revamped Outer Limits series that came out in 1995. It was an hour and a half long, so I can understand why I remembered it as a movie. Worth a read? Definitely
Once upon a time, I watched a movie by the same name. It was actually a pretty engaging movie and I ended up buying it. I love me some time travel stories, and this one did not disappoint. This my first venture into the world of Ray Bradbury… which should appease at least one of my readers. I approve. I really liked the story and kinda want to read it again. It’s short enough where it wouldn’t take up too much time. Worth a read? Definitely.
