Four Past Midnight

Stephen King. Signet Book, $7.99 (768pp) ISBN 978-0-451-17038-5

Jet passengers are stuck in a time-slip, a psychopath accuses a writer of plagiarism, a man with an overdue book encounters a demonic librarian and a boy's camera snaps photos of a huge and nasty dog in these four horror novellas. According to PW , ``None is wildly scary, and only ``The Library Policeman'' offers King's typical, colloquial, hard-driving conversational style with its compulsive readability.'' (Sept.)
