Yeah, that's always been my biggest critique of him. He comes up with incredible characters and concepts, and knows how to use them to create good suspense and tension. But it's like half the time he just doesn't know how to end stories.
The exception, of course, is Needful Things
. That's just a well crafted story from beginning to end.
