THE BOOGEYMAN SHORT STORY REVIEW - A beleaguered father, plagued by guilt, visits a psychiatrist. As he lays on the couch, he recounts the murders of his three children. The Boogeyman was originally published in the March 1973 issue of Cavalier, and later collected in Stephen King's 1978 short story collection, entitled Night Shift. If you’re a regularly reader of my blog, you’re well aware of my fondness for this fellow horror writer. Some of my earliest reading memories are being engrossed in novels like Carrie, Pet Semetary, Cujo and Christine. King takes our subconscious fears, creates relatable characters, and loves a twist ending. What horror writer doesn’t imagine a monster lurking in the closet? While this story is very short, in that respect, it doesn’t disappoint. A must read!
