Halloween spooktacular by Stephen King

This novel is a get-away, and leaves you with a renewed sense of wonder

Review by Robert McCool
Stephen King's latest “The Outsider” ( Simon and Shuster, ISBN 978-1-9821-4824-9) doesn't disappoint.

Everything that can be said about Stephen King has already been said. One of the world's most popular authors can be depended upon to deliver a good old supernatural yarn. Still, he remains a matter of taste to many. He either gives you a case of the shivers, as in this latest novel, or disgusts with too much realism when it comes to violence. So, I don't like everything he's written, but I do like this book.

Icon music review: The Rarities - Mariah Carey

The album is can’t miss listening for Mariah Carey fans

Reviewed by Craig Hoffman
The Rarities is the eighth compilation album by American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey, released in October by Columbia and Legacy Records.

The artist is also a record producer, actress, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. Carey is the definition of megastar and has the talent to more than back that description.

Carey is the first artist in history to have five singles become consecutive number one songs on the Billboard Hot 100. She is perhaps most famous for her ethereal-like five-octave vocal range. The “Songbird Supreme” does not disappoint with her latest effort.
