I wish he would just let each story stand on its own. The insane Ed and the 3 little bald headed doctors: Clotho, Lacheses and the nasty Atropos. Yeah, the concept itself is one of King's coolest — Ralph Roberts, elderly Derry resident, begins to see strange auras and Little Bald Doctors after developing insomnia in the months following his wife's death — but I feel it's really bungled.
