Two Past Midnight: 'Secret Window, Secret Garden' enters the suddenly strange life of writer, alone on the shore of Tashmore Lake. Three Past Midnight: 'The Library Policeman' is set in Junction City, Iowa, an unlikely place for evil to be hiding . . . Four Past Midnight: 'The Sun Dog' sees a menacing black dog appear in every Polaroid picture that fifteen-year-old Kevin Delevan takes with his new camera, beckoning him to the supernatural.
