4.5 Stephen King At His Darkest. Dirtfish | 28/07/2011 | See all Dirtfish's reviews (475) Full Dark, No Stars is a collection of four short stories from horror writer Stephen King. I would say the stories in this book are some of the darkest tales Stephen King has told in a long time.1922 is a tale about a man who kills his wife while living in isolation on a small rural farm. Big Driver is a rape drama tale featuring a female author after revenge. Fair Extension is the shortest story but is still creepy and set in Kings fictional town Derry and A Good Marriage is a dark tale about a wife finding out about her husband secret life.Apart from Fair Extension the stories in this book are quite long for short stories and that gives King chance to develop the characters and plot. This is a good book and reminds me of a darker Different Seasons.
