Great little short story

The Road Virus Heads North is one of Stephen King's better short stories.

This one is a tale of an author who buys a painting (done by a kid who later committed suicide) and tells what will happen next in the way the painting changes.

The changes are subtle at first then more pronounced as time goes on.

A cracking short tale, well read & with a superb ending.... Excellent

Classic King

I like this, this is classic short Story King all the way. Quick and dirty, that is the way a short story should read and this one hits the mark. Well Done Master!

Nice Stephen King appetizer.

I enjoyed this short story by Stephen King. The performance was good and the story kept moving pretty good. I think this would have made a great Twilight Zone episode.
